Relapse Prevention Plan
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 clinical interventions, (review Chapter 8), how could you integrate specific counseling interventions (CBT, MI, SF) that target 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, Outpatient Interventions.
How do coping strategies help clients prevent relapse? Present at least two examples of coping strategies and explain how they may benefit the client, their family, and the community in which they live and work.
Read the “Jed Assessment Case Study” and imagine that Jed is your client. Complete the relapse prevention plan worksheet by developing a relapse prevention plan for Jed. Use third person (i.e., Jed will or the client will) and assume that the two of you have formulated the plan together.
APA style is not required but solid academic writing is expected.
