Week 4 – Assignment: Completing the PCF Worksheet
For this assignment, you will articulate your personal clinical focus (PFC) for the course. Now that you have consulted with and/or obtained feedback from your instructor on your proposed PCF, you will complete the PCF worksheet (found in the Week 4 Books and Resources area) describing your PCF for course, which centers on a specific presenting problem (e.g., infidelity, bipolar disorder, relationship conflict, ADHD). Throughout the rest of this course, you will prepare an evidence-based practice guide to treat clients reporting this presenting problem. Please remember that your PP must be congruent with your specialization (e.g., if your specialization is Therapy with Military Families this PP should relate to military families). You should also seek to locate any treatment studies or scholarly resources for treating this presenting problem based on the MFT clinical theory you identified with in 5104 and/or 5105 (e.g., Are there any outcome studies or case examples for this problem using the theory you are currently identifying with?).
