Imagine that you have been seeing a client  for 4 months. During treatment, you learn that he has been 5 years sober  but lately has felt an intense sense of anxiety and has requested a  referral to a psychiatrist. Upon returning to his counseling sessions,  you learn that the psychiatrist has prescribed diazepam, a  benzodiazepine. You are aware of the fact that the benzodiazepine  functions similarly to alcohol in the body. You are concerned about a  relapse because of this newly prescribed medication for the anxiety  disorder.

Sometimes the medication a  doctor chooses to treat a client’s symptoms is ineffective or  inappropriate, or it may not create the desired effect without  intolerable side effects. Under what circumstances does it become  necessary for a mental health professional to advocate for an  alternative treatment for a client? What ethical issues associated with  client treatment would mental health professionals need to address? Why  would a release of information be needed?

For  this Assignment, view the media case study titled “Anxiety Disorder  Case Study: Mary.”Assume the role of a mental health professional to  respond to the client call. Review the medication that the psychiatrist  prescribed and explain the expected effects and side effects of its use.  Plan a treatment strategy. By Day 7

In a 2.5, APA-formatted paper, include the following: An explanation of any concerns, ethical or otherwise, you may have regarding the client’s generalized anxiety disorder treatment An explanation of the factors you would take into consideration in  developing a strategy to treat the client’s generalized anxiety disorder An explanation of a treatment strategy for the client’s generalized  anxiety disorder along with a justification for your strategy An explanation of how you would advocate for your treatment strategy
