Case Scenario

Your client Mark comes to your therapy office because his wife says he has a drinking problem and said she would divorce him if he did not get treatment.

-How would you know whether Mark has a “drinking problem”? (We haven’t learned the specific DSM criteria for substance use disorders yet, but you can address this based on your general knowledge of the DSM and what constitutes a clinical disorder.)

-What questions would you ask Mark during the intake interview? If you were a therapist, would your preference be to conduct a structured or unstructured/non-directive (or semi-structured) interview? What are the pros and cons of structured vs. unstructured interviews?

-What assessment tools might you want to use with Mark?
