Psychology Question “

Description

Step 1: Read the following case study:  

Bernice, a 25-year-old woman, is still living at home with her parents.  She was hesitant during her initial counseling session because she feared what the therapist would think of her. Bernice feared the therapist wouldn’t understand that she had the ability to save the world. The fate of the universe rested on the complex mathematical formula circulating in her mind. The therapist focused on building a therapeutic alliance with Bernice by engaging in empathic, nonjudgmental listening. Soon, Bernice shared that she was hearing a voice no one else seemed to be hearing. At first, the voice scared her until she realized the voice had identified her over anyone else to share vital information. The voice was sharing with her a mathematical formula that would put an end to global climate change. She alone had the necessary information to settle the fears brought about by climate change.

Bernice soon quit her job working at the bank; actually, she never resigned, she just stopped showing up for work. She spent all her time alone, locked up in her bedroom trying to write down the formula that the voice was explaining to her, but no matter how hard she tried she wasn’t able to take the idea and express it correctly on paper.

Step 2: Based on the Bernice Case Study, identify the most relevant psychological disorder associated with her symptoms and explain your rationale.

Step 3: In your own words, explain what you have learned from the assigned readings about the psychological disorder you identified for the Bernice Case Study.

Step 4:  You will need to select at least *one* academic journal article that explains one treatment approach used for the psychological disorder you identified for the Bernice Case Study.  To conduct your research on the treatment approach, please use one of the following methods:

You can search the following:   Monitor on Psychology (webpage, opens in a new tab). In the search box, type the disorder you identified.  Then, you can locate an article about a treatment approach.

You can also search the PsychArticles Database, which you can access using the following steps.  First click on:  SPC’s LibraryOnline (webpage, opens in a new tab).  Then, click “Search Online.”  Next, click “Databases by Subject.”  Next to “Social Sciences,” click PsychArticles.  In the search box, type the disorder you identified. Then, you can locate an article about a treatment approach.

You can also search Google Scholar (webpage, opens in a new tab).  Google Scholar only provides an abstract, which is a summary.  After you locate an abstract on Google Scholar, you will need to locate the full article on SPC’s LibraryOnline (webpage, opens in a new tab).

In your own words, summarize the treatment approach you identified from the research you conducted.  Please avoid quoting the academic journal; instead, describe the treatment approach with depth and in your own words.
