I have attached the lecture notes after the case study and I need quality 15 references Assessment #1 – Case study Assignment 1 ? Choose only one case study from the three provided in the Assessment Guide on the course website. This assignment requires you to describe the key factors you would take into account in making a social work assessment and in planning for case management with the client. You are not being asked to present a plan – only to identify the key factors to be considered in light of the academic literature on the mental health problems presented in the case. You are asked to draw on a recovery-oriented approach to mental health assessment and case management in social work as outlined in the course text book, Bland, Renouf and Tullgren (2015). This should include the following: 1. A brief explanation of a recovery-oriented approach to assessment and case management in mental health social work – what is distinctive about these? 2. The key factors in this case that should be taken into account in undertaking a recovery-oriented assessment and planning for case management, drawing on the relevant life domains outlined in the text book (i.e. you are not being asked to refer to all 12 domains but those that are most relevant to the case). This will include discussion of existing mental health research literature relevant to the case. For example, in the case of Justine, you could outline what is known about the effects of racism on mental health, the effects of sexual abuse on mental health and how this knowledge might further enhance understanding of Justine?s situation. Again, you are not being asked to present a case management plan but to speak to the factors you would consider in planning for case management; 3. The social work theory or theories that would also guide your approach to assessment and case management with this client and why (e.g. strengths approach, empowerment approach, feminist social work approach); 4. Potential ethical and legal implications of the case – this can be brief – refer to the text book chapter on legal aspects of mental health and the AASW code of ethics. Chapters 6 & 7 of the course text are a good place to start for this assignment. The case study assignment can be presented in the format of a report, and you can use the above dot points as headings. However, you need to draw on the relevant mental health and social work literature throughout. Please note ? as a social worker or human service worker, you are not being asked to make a psychiatric diagnosis. You can nevertheless comment on the condition(s) you think are likely based on your reading of the literature and the implications for practice. . This is my Case Study Jennifer is in her late 50s. She was the fifth child in a family of six. Her father was a labourer and her mother was not in the paid work force. She missed a lot of school because her mother was not well ? she implies her mother struggled with poor mental health and alludes to domestic violence from her father to her mother. Jennifer was an extremely shy child and rarely had friends to play with. She is not particularly close to her siblings, saying that they see her as ?weak? and ?unstable? like her mother. Jennifer was often singled out for physical and emotional abuse at the hands of her father, who called her ?stupid? and ?away with the fairies?. She often blamed her mother for not protecting her and for not making the home a happy one. Jennifer says that because she felt unloved in her family, she married young, yearning for closeness. She wanted to escape her family and fill the void she experienced in her own childhood. She had three children soon after. Jennifer thought that if she had children, that she could make the loving family that she missed out on. Her husband was about 20 years her senior. He had very strong expectations about marriage and gender divisions within the relationship. It was considered natural for Jennifer to tend to household chores, to cook and look after him and to take care of the children. He was the decision-maker and Jennifer had to do as she was told. Although Jennifer was originally looking for love, care and support, her husband was cold, controlling and emotionally abusive. Over time, Jennifer progressively became anxious, distressed and eventually had a nervous breakdown. Her children were still young. Jennifer often forgot to pick up the older children from school. She started to leave her younger children at home and go wandering during the day. When Jennifer went wandering, she would become disorientated and forget how to get home. One day, the police picked up Jennifer in her disoriented state and took her Glenside. At first, she was detained for three days under the Mental Health Act, which was extended a number of times over a lengthy period. Jennifer was diagnosed with schizophrenia and medicated with anti-psychotic drugs. Eventually, she was released and allowed to return home. However, Jennifer?s husband kicked her out with nowhere to go. This is when Jennifer started living on the streets. As a homeless person, Jennifer was in and out of shelters continuously. But, more often than not, she roughed it out-doors. She had numerous involuntary admissions to Glenside under the Mental Health Act over the next few years and she lost touch with her children. Since marrying and moving away more than ten years ago, Jennifer has not kept in contact with any of her family. She doesn?t even know if her parents are still together, whether any of her siblings have families of their own and where they might be living now. Jennifer has been referred by a women’s centre to a supported community housing program. The vision is to offer Jennifer a unit of her own and to implement continual supervision and support. You are her social worker.

World Health Organisation (WHO, 2002) Prevention and Promotion of Mental Health, Geneva. Recovery Approaches to Mental Health Care ? What is recovery? ?A deeply personal, unique process of changing one?s attitudes, values, feelings, goals, skills, and/or roles. It is a way of living a satisfying, hopeful and contributing life even with limitations caused by illness. Recovery involves the development of new meaning and purpose in one?s life as one grows beyond the catastrophic effects of mental illness.? (Anthony, 1993,p.15 cited in Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015, p.43) ? What is recovery? ?Recovery is the journey toward a new and valued sense of identity, role and purpose outside the parameters of mental illness; and living well despite any limitations resulting from the illness, its treatment, and personal and environmental conditions.? Queensland Health (2005) Sharing responsibility for recovery. ? Recovery ? Living well in spite of limitations and symptoms. ? Radically different to deficit model. ? Strong evidence people recover (WHO, 1967 cited in Bland et al, 2015). ? Mental illness often does not result in inevitable ?deterioration? (WHO, 1967 cited in Bland et al, 2015). . ? Total restoration of functioning possible for most people (WHO, 1967 cited in Bland et al, 2015). ? Increasing numbers of personal stories of recovery (eg Deegan, 1996). ? The most basic foundation is?.. ?Hope lays the ground- work for the process of healing to begin.? (Jacobson and Curtis, 2001, in Queensland Health, 2005). Five elements of recovery include??. ? Hope ? Active Sense of Self ? Personal Responsibility ? Discovery ? Remaining Connected (Glover, 2005) Recovery approach to practice ? No one formula – a personal journey. ? No one version in the literature – ? O?Hagan (2012) – against all involuntary treatment or detention. ? Courtney and Moulding (2014) ? their research shows social workers using recovery approaches in involuntary treatment settings. ? So what might a recovery orientation look like in practice? ? Acknowledging lived experience. ? Respectful curiosity and hopeful attitude. ? Engaging an active sense of self, agency & responsibility. ? Encouraging connection with self, relationships and community. ? Participation and collaboration. ? Deep listening. ? Not necessarily focusing on a particular view on causation ? why? (based on Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015) What might a recovery orientation look like in practice? ? Focus on socio-cultural context of mental health practice. ? Focus on strengths and positive outcomes. ? Reducing professional distance and authority ? i.e. reducing POWER relation. (based on Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015) Person-centred language ? From a service user perspective, workers should? ? Explore concerns, interests and aspirations to develop relationship. ? Reframe meanings. ? Notice effort and exceptions – point them out ? Describe concrete examples ? Measure, notice and sustain change ? Share power (from Anne Tullgren in Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015) ? Recovery and involuntary treatment: reconciling the irreconcilable? ? What if clients stop taking medication, become very unwell & are at risk? ? Involuntary treatment ? community treatment orders (CTOs) ? Courtney and Moulding (2014) – how social workers manage tensions between recovery approach and involuntary treatment ? Recovery and involuntary treatment: reconciling the irreconcilable? ? Social workers described ethical tensions. ? BUT they embedded involuntary treatment in recovery approach by: ? Enabling client choice and agency within constraints ? Building calculated risk into treatment planning ? Advocating with other colleagues about client choice ? Advocating for clients? rights to support and challenging use of recovery rhetoric about ?client responsibility? to deprive clients of services ? (Courtney & Moulding, 2014) ? Findings Enhancing client choice : ? ?This is a good opportunity to try something different ? let?s look at making some changes to medication regimes. So rather than sticking with an injection, which ensures that it?s on board but the person doesn?t like it, let?s look at what else we can do. You?ve got the CTO there so if things start going wobbly we know we can act quickly.? (Clare) ? Findings Advocating for clients? rights to services : ?Once a CTO is in place you actually have a responsibility for this department to provide treatment for the client, and as a department we?re then obliged to assist them in getting those services, and they have a legal right to access those services.? (Andrew) ? Findings ? Social workers focused on relationship between worker-client ? Personal growth, client as expert & other relationships in clients? lives not mentioned ? May reflect narrow job roles or lack of deep knowledge about recovery approaches ? Beyond the client-worker HOUSING WORK INCOME (Queensland Health, 2005) Summary ? Recovery as an individual journey based on hope ? Fits well with social work values and purpose ? All social worker mental health practice can be guided by recovery principles – even in involuntary settings ? Recovery extends beyond worker-clie

Always remember Consumer Rights and encourage meaningful participation. How do we engage consumers in therapeutic client centred care. Can we provide effective clinical care while still building rapport and being client focused? Can we ask clinical questions in a client centred way? Recovery the general definition Recovery 1. the act or process of recovering, especially from sickness, a shock, or a setback; recuperation 2. restoration to a former or better condition 3. the regaining of something lost Recovery in Mental Health Recovery is defined my many people and in many different ways. Recover is really about a strength based consumer focused model that helps consumers achieve their goals. Recovery is about moving away from ?do this and you will get better? to a partnership with the consumer where we as a health service and as clinicians work together with the consumers on their goals and helping them achieve what they want. People with a mental health diagnosis (regardless of what this is) want what everyone wants which is a happy life, meaningful activities, good friendships and relationship and being able to achieve there dreams. ?We want what you have? Recovery We don?t own recovery the consumer does. It is their journey and we are there to aid them in this process. Clinical recovery Clinical recovery is related to symptom management, amount of medication and contact with a health service Personal recovery Is based on their experience and their recovery and on their overall happiness and wellbeing Clinical Recovery ? Clinical recovery are the ideas that have emerged from the expertise of mental health professionals and is about reduction of symptoms, getting back to social functioning and getting back to normal. ? Most mental health services are currently geared towards clinical recovery and moving closer to personal recovery framework is a goal of many mental health services (Slade, 2009). ? Slade (2009) describes clinical recovery as being about professional accountability, as being control oriented and based on a relationship of power of the service over the individual. Clinical Recovery ? In terms of the knowledge base of clinical recovery the focus is randomised control trials guiding practice, systematic reviews and is decontextualized in terms of practice. ? Clinical recovery is scientific based and focussed on psychopathology, diagnosis, treatment and clinical expertise Personal Recovery ? Personal Recovery is an idea which has emerged from the expertise of people with lived experience of mental illness and means something different to clinical recovery. ? It is described as a deeply personal and unique experience which is about changing and shifting attitudes, values, goals with satisfaction and hope (Robert & Wolfson, 2004; Slade, 2009). ? Personal recovery is, however, said to be based upon being value centred, geared towards choice and more empowerment based than traditional clinical approaches (Slade, 2009). Personal Recovery The personal Recovery Framework is about promoting wellbeing rather than treating illness. There are four domains of recovery that have been developed from the actual lived experience or expertise of people who have experienced mental illness these are (Slade, 2009): Hope Self identity Meaning Personal responsibilities Hope The little engine that could ?I think I can I think I can? Looking forward to your future, having goals and dreams. Believing things will get better and not losing inspiration for your future Positive Emotions Happiness, Joy, Courage and Empowerment Self-identity Identifying yourself as the person you are instead of the illness you have. Being happy with who you are Finding your identity Seeing mental illness as a small bit of your life that at time you experience symptoms of and not being something that defines you and your future Focusing on your strengths not your weaknesses Meaning Developing new meaning and purpose in ones life Having goals to aim for Finding out who you really are Seeing your future as something to look forward to and not to be scared of Defining yourself by the person you are and the life you live not by the illness your experience. ?If you own your story you get to write the ending? Brene? Brown Personal responsibilities Being the driver in your life Working with and in partnership with your health workers. Taking conscious control to the events in your life Having the courage to accept responsibility for your decisions Learning from your mistakes Taking the time to learn from your experience and help it guide your future. Personal Recovery It is about rekindling hope for a productive present and a rewarding future and believing that one deserves it. Recovery involves people having a personal vision of the life they want to live, seeing and changing patterns and discovering symptoms can be managed and doing it. Recovery is about claiming the roles of a ?healthy? person rather than a ?sick person?. Recovery is about getting there. Therapist role in Clinical vs. Personal recovery Clinical Recovery You are the driver (clinician/ worker) Based on clinical improvements and outcomes Reduction in symptoms Time away from treatment Symptom management Social functioning benchmarked against illness Personal Recovery Consumers are the driver you are a co-driver Based on their goals, hopes and aspirations Social function measured by them Self management Positive identity How does recovery based practice look Seeing the real person Understanding a consumers experience Put yourself in their shoes Seeing them a person and not an illness Moving from outcomes based on clinical improvement to outcomes based on where the consumers see?s themselves Inspiring hope and encouraging them to see a future where goals and dreams are possible, not a future defined by their diagnosis How does recovery based practice look Coaching model vs. a treatment model, Acknowledging achievement Encouraging hope, aspiration and dreams Walking beside instead of mapping the path Focusing on strengths and not weaknesses Seeing a relapse not as a step back but asking what can be learned from today that they didn?t know yesterday and not suggesting a this is a step back in their journey. Learning from the Consumer Getting to know the real person Ack
nowledging there journey not minimizing the experience. It may be symptoms but its their experience Being empathic instead of sympathetic Guiding internal learning instead of teaching Consumers have the answers, its your role to aid them in discovering this themselves People learn more and take more ownership if they have discovered themselves, walk beside them. How Does a Consumer Feel? Think about how you would feel and how a mental illness could impact on you or someone you care for Think about how you would like to be treated Think about what approach would help you in these situations Think about what you would like to know How do you feel when you are first diagnosed with a Mental Illness? Denial Fear Rejection Self Doubt Lack of Self worth Different (not normal) (Crazy) These are just some of the feelings that consumers in general may experience when first diagnosed with a mental illness What does it feel like being in a psychiatric ward? Feeling trapped Feel like you have lost all freedom and rights Just want to get out Feel ashamed Afraid what people would think if they knew they had been in a psych ward (stigma) Hide their real feeling as you just want to get out Have problems accepting that they have a Mental Illness What is it like taking Medication? And why consumers often don?t want to take it Feel drained and no energy at first Might say they feel like a zombie Scared of side effects They don?t know enough about the medication they are prescribed. Don?t want to take or think you need medication Sometimes when unwell people may think that medications is trying to control them or limit them How does stigma effect a consumer? Crazy Dangerous Out of control Life is over No real future No one will like them Freak These are just some of the ideas a person may think when diagnosed, because of stigma, stigma can come from the community or a person can have their own ideas based on stigma. Stigma How can Mental Health effect your lifestyle? Isolation Confidence Self ?destructive? behaviour Effects work, study and social life May resort to drugs & alcohol to self medicate or cover up their real feelings ?Life isn?t about waiting for the storm to pass, its about learning to dance in the rain? Working together with the consumer Engaging consumer as partners in their care . Building rapport Removing the us and them (thoughts of consumers) Building a therapeutic client centred relationship. ?what do they want and how can we help them get there? Finding out early warning signs and history of current presentation. Benefits and fears (compliance of treatment) of previous and/or current treatment Planning goals Engaging consumers as partners in their care, examples in mental health care planning Ulysses Agreement This is a great starting point to engage consumers as you can talk about what they would like to happen if they get unwell Ask consumers what happen this time they got unwell and how they would like it different next time, ask them questions about there treatment, what was helpful, what are some things that they worried about, who they wanted involved. Ulysses agreement a plan for the consumer and help them think about what worked well and what could be done differently in their opinion Engaging consumer in mental health care planning ? Employment and education status, ? This is good to find out if they are working or studying. ? The follow up questions should be how is work or study going at the moment, are they areas they need assistance with, do they need doctors certificates, do they need support from the university/tafe ? If they are not working what work or study are they interested in, what have been some barriers they may have hit ? Do they need Centrelink forms completed Engaging consumer in mental health care planning Consumer wellbeing This is a great area to really explore how their mental illness effects them and what support they may need What my mental illness doesn?t stop them doing? This could be study, Caring for their family Working Exercising Caring for themselves This can be anything that they still feel confident doing when unwell Things that impact on my wellbeing, This is really triggers and what can make their wellbeing and mental health worse Ask questions about drugs and alcohol Ask question about how family and friends can impact or assist Increased stress my impact Financial issues Exam stress Increased work load Anything you think may cause stress is worth asking about Think about what makes you stressed Understanding of Mental Health This section explores the person and their families understanding of mental health Think about Medication Treatment Symptoms Diagnosis Triggers Early warning signs Stigma This leads on to early warning signs and things that help make them feel better Ask them what they noticed before becoming unwell, How was their sleep Temper Isolation Concentration Eating habits Motivation Confidence Anxiety Try to normalize as much as possible everyone notices some things that change prior to becoming unwell What helps Anything thing that makes them feel better, think outside the square Sleep Exercise Family/friends Pets The beach Good food Music Yoga Walking What helps Think about what treatment they are receiving how has this helped? Medication; how has this helped? Extra support What supports have helped Psychological therapies; how has this helped? Past and Present (what has helped in the past) What do they do to stay well? Goals What is a goal? Goals can be anything Getting up earlier Exercising Study/Work Seeing more of their family A holiday What’s one thing they want to change? What is one thing they would like to try? What are their strengths to help with this? What is the action they need to do? How is involved/responsible? Goals they have already achieved at anytime? Importance of goals Medications What medications are they taking, you prescribed and others How has the medication helped them Ask open ended questions and explore Are they sleeping better, less stressed, calmer Have other medications helped? What have they used before What is their understanding of the medication? This may be the thing impacting on compliance Medications What side effects have they experience or thought they have experienced What side effects are they scared of? Do they know how to manage these and when they should seek help? Are side effects stopping them being compliant What medications haven?t helped or they want to avoid? Why? Engaging consumers There are a number of things that you may notice from these examples. They are not making assumptions They are involving the consumer in their care. They show interest They give you a good way to assess a number of areas. Not Giving in. Recovery isn?t an easy journey sometimes its harder than the illness itself because you have to know yourself so well and plan for good times and bad times. We can?t force a person to recover, it is their journey however we can be a partner in a part of the journey and aid them with skills and knowledge we have. Its hard but its worth it and with help, personal investment and goals everyone regards of illness can have a life they want!! Consumer Centred Care Today I have discussed service delivery from a consumers view, what works well for me working in mental health and how to change practice to focus on consumers as the experts in there care. As health professional there are many ways that services can be run from very restricted practice providing little rights and freedoms to a more inclusive model that includes the consumer in there care. The outcomes of more inclusive client centred care benefits not only the consumer but reduces stigma and improves outcomes for a service as a whole. When developing a service model it is import to consider how this effects consumer care, what outcomes we are aiming for and how to provide care that concentrates on strengths and how to enable a consumer with skills on self-management. Case Management and Assessment in Mental Health Social Work Case management Developed from case work A type of planning, implementation and evaluation; Arose from expansion of community mental
health services; Assessment is early phase but occurs beyond this. Case management in mental health social work *?Case management? implies control Better thought of as partnership Complex needs = purposeful coordination Shared, inter-disciplinary responsibility Key role of social workers Recovery approach ?focus on person-in-situation/relationship (Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015) What is the purpose of case management? To support clients? recovery Oriented towards the vision of recovery, social participation and social inclusion; Active and planned vs monitoring and reactive to crises. (Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015). What does case management involve? Assessment of client needs; Individual service plans – key life domains, strengths & problems/risks; Monitoring & review of how client is feeling, situation & progress; Planning for case closure & discharge. (Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015). Individual service plans ? 12 domains Emotional and mental wellbeing; Dealing with stress; Personal response to mental health problem; Personal safety and safety of others; Friendships and social relationships; Work, leisure and education; Daily living skills; Family?s response to a relative?s mental health problem; Income; Physical health; Housing; Rights and advocacy (Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015). Levels of case management Point of contact between clients and mental health system; Internal coordination within the mental health system; Internal and external coordination; Specialist intensive case management ? most effective. (Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015). Relationship and roles of a case manager Relationship is paramount ? getting to know the person (Solomonetal 2005, in Bland et al, 2015) Roles ? clinician, psychotherapist, coordinator of continuity of care, designer of strategies for achieving goals with clients, consultant team member, advocate and care planner. Focus on strengths and risks Skills (gardening); Talents (cooking); Personal virtues (patience or humour); Interpersonal skills (kindness); Interpersonal and environmental resources (family or good neighbours); Cultural knowledge; Family stories or narratives (eg migration); Occupational knowledge (caring for others); Spirituality or faith (meaning beyond the self); Hopes and dreams (a better future). *What are the challenges? Managing large workloads; Difficulty of engaging with clients who have had negative experiences in the past; Working with involuntary clients. (unless specified above, based on Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015) What are the challenges? Balancing risk so there is a place for positive risk taking; Balancing accountability; Working in complex settings; Working in teams where a medical model prevails. (unless specified above, based on Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015) Assessment Assessment first step in case management; Assessment = process + product; An ongoing collaborative process throughout the worker-client relationship. Mental state examination (MSE) Appearance distinctive features clothing grooming hygiene Behaviour facial expression body language and gestures posture eye contact response to the assessment itself rapport and social engagement level of arousal (e.g. calm, agitated) anxious or aggressive behaviour psychomotor activity and movement (e.g. hyperactivity, hypoactivity) unusual features (e.g. tremors, or slowed, repetitive, or involuntary movements) See course website for more dimensions of MSE Thoughts Content: delusions (rigidly held false beliefs not consistent with the person?s background) overvalued ideas (unreasonable belief, e.g. a person with anorexia believing they are overweight) preoccupations depressive thoughts self-harm, suicidal, aggressive or homicidal ideation Process: Thought process refers to the formation and coherence of thoughts and is inferred very much through the person?s speech and expression of ideas. highly irrelevant comments (loose associations or derailment) frequent changes of topic (flight of ideas or tangential thinking) *What is the flavour of the MSE? Medical Symptom-oriented Professional gaze Client passivity Objectifying Reductionist Use of mystifying language Single assessment made based on worker?s view Unequal power relations It nonetheless contributes to diagnosis Assessment in mental health social work Ongoing process of evaluating problems and strengths, including those of the environment; Focus on social context and social consequences; Focus on the relationships; Person-in-situation; Contrast with MSE; Bio-psycho-social perspective is important. (Bland et al, 2015) Strengths and Problems Strengths and problems = recovery approach. Strengths might include: Functioning in the face of distress; Bouncing back from trauma; Use of external challenges; Talents and skills; Use of social supports; Interpersonal skills; Strong intimate relationships; Extended family; Good neighbours; Use of local community services. Types of assessment Procedural and formulaic (e.g. MSE); Questioning models – a format of questions; Exchange model – most sophisticated. (Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015) Exchange model Most sophisticated; More difficult; Clients have expertise; Worker?s expertise is process of problem-solving ; Can form the basis for an ongoing RELATIONSHIP; Conversational, language of the client, at client?s pace, ordinary community setting; Attitude of respectful curiosity; Systematic and draws on multiple sources? e.g. files, family etc; Numerous understandings of the person?s situation. (Bland et al, 2015) Steps Preparation ?who to see, what data, what the purpose is, limits of the task; Gathering information ?with respectful uncertainty and a research mentality?; Weighing up the data; Analysing the data; Making use of the data. (From Bland et al 2015 adapted from Milner and O?Brien, 2002) Life Domains Emotional and mental wellbeing; Dealing with stress; Personal response to mental health problem; Personal safety and safety of others; Friendships and social relationships; Work, leisure and education; Daily living skills; Family?s response to a relative?s mental health problem; Income; Physical health; Housing; Rights and advocacy (Bland, Renouf and Tullgren, 2015). Assessing risks Part of assessment and includes whether there is: Danger to self through self-harm of suicide; Danger to self through self-neglect; Dangers arising from lack of treatment; Dangers arising from offensive or provocative behaviour; Danger of exploitation by others; Danger to others through assault, exploitation or abuse or neglect of children or dependent adults.

I mean, I?m going to lose my job if I can?t manage this anxiety and get back to work. I won?t have enough money to pay the bills, and if I have to go back to Centrelink, it will take ages before I get a payment.

Probes ? ?Well, I saw a counsellor for a while which seemed to help, and then I found this job with a friend in her shop and I haven?t had as much of a problem with my anxiety since then.? ? ?So by the sounds of it, things were going well, what do you think has happened since then? ? ?I don?t know, I did have a fight with my boyfriend and I was pretty upset, but we sorted it out the next day, but I noticed the anxiety sort of started about then.? ? ?A fight?? ? ?Yeah, he didn?t call me back all day and I was angry with him, but it turns out he left his phone at home. We had a bit of a yelling match at my place. We don?t fight very often, so it was pretty upsetting for me? ? ?Sounds like you felt pretty churned up and that your relationship is very important to you? ? ?Yeah, we are good mates and have fun together? ? Summarising ? attempts to tie together main themes of a client’s story ? provides feedback on what we have heard and opportunity to check if we have heard correctly? ? can help regulate the conversation , especially if the client is feeling overwhelmed ? helps review where the session is going for client and for the worker ? Summarising ? An example ?It sounds like this is a really hard time and we?ve talked about a lot of things, so I would just like to summarise what we?ve talked about so far. The anxiety appears to be your main concern at the moment, and its impact on your job and the effect this could have on being able to pay your bills. You think that it might be the fight with your partner that has set it off again. You also talked about managing your anxiety in the past and the key thing was some counselling you received at the time. You were clearly able to make use of this to manage, which is great. Before we finish our session today, I wonder if we can talk a bit about where to from here, what would you like to do ??

Alternative terms used to describe mental incapacity include ?mental impairment? and ?decision making incapacity?. ? Mental incapacity is decision specific ? It may be temporary or ongoing or may only affect certain decisions ? Capacity to make a decision can change depending on what the decision is, the complexity of the issues involved and when the decision is to be made ?E.g. a person may have a mental illness which temporarily affects their ability to manage their finances when they are unwell ? Formal assessment by GP, neurologist, geriatrician or psychiatrist ? others can provide input ? LEGISLATIVE PRINCIPLES s5 ?
