Inpatient Intervention Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Discussion
Assume you are working at an agency with both inpatient and outpatient services. Mary is a client of yours in inpatient so you will be working with her one-on-one at least once a week in inpatient treatment then she will transfer levels (from level III to Level II.I) at which point you will also be her counselor in intensive outpatient. Using your knowledge of effective treatment interventions (review Chapter 8), how could you integrate a variety of treatment interventions that target emotional, environmental and irrational thinking triggers into both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Her diagnoses include Alcohol Use Disorder, Opiate Use Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Use headings: Inpatient interventions, and Outpatient interventions.
