Criteria for assessment
In this assessment task you are required to write an academic essay based on a formulation of a psychotherapeutic session(s). You will be exploring the psychotherapeutic elements of a therapy session(s). The formulation should include the process of establishing a therapeutic relationship to understand the consumer’s narrative (for example, life events, social circumstance, relationships with others), the consumer’s explanation of the causes of their presentation and/or issue, and your explanation of the causes of their presentation and/or issue as a therapist. You will need to demonstrate an understanding of the psychotherapeutic relationship, power and its relationship in therapy, mutuality and connectedness, recovery alliance, and the use of trauma-informed principles of care. The essay should have contemporary and relevant evidence-based literature to support all formulations and clinical decision making.
The formulation can be based on a de-identified consumer. You are not required to provide the therapy session, but to access de-identified clinical information that will support your formulation of a session(s).
To ensure you do not breach consumer and/or carer/family confidentiality, you must make sure there are no identifiable factors, such as no consumer/carer or family member’s name, date of birth, address, dates of admission, health service, staff members associated with the consumer care, and any medical/clinical record dates. If you are unsure of any requirements re: breach of confidentiality, please review Maintaining confidentiality ( a guide for students): Psychotherapy Essentials (NURS90141_2021_SEP (Online)) (unimelb.edu.au)
