Selecting The Right Professional Case Study

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 1 of your course text and explore the Subject Categories (Links to an external site.) web page.

Mental health professionals are a diverse group and range greatly in their scope and depth of practice. In terms of doctorly prepared practitioners you will often find yourself working with psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and neuropsychologists. Using websites such as (Links to an external site.), explore these careers and what roles these professionals play. Then consider the three cases below and imagine you are the case worker for each instance. Your job is to refer the patient to one (and only one) of the professionals (i.e., psychologist, psychiatrist, neurologist, or neuropsychologist) who is the best choice to evaluate and manage the case.

  • Case 1 (Gary). Gary is a 23-year-old male who just last year enrolled in community college and who came to the attention of his professors when his grades started to drop. When asked what was going on he stated that there were people watching him all the time making it hard for him to sleep and therefore to study.
  • Case 2 (Connie). Connie is a 40-year-old mother of three and has been employed at a local warehouse for the last many years. She is well liked and gets great job performance reviews. Recently she has shown instances of being late, her work has declined, and she has been seen crying when off alone. She states she is upset over her children leaving for college and her husband not giving her much attention.
  • Case 3 (James). James is a 30-year-old semipro ball player. He was, until recently, moving up in his career and was getting a lot of attention from scouts. However, just in the last few weeks his pitching started to suffer, he became irritable over nearly everything, and was just found slumped over the steering wheel of his car that had rolled into another parking space. He was uninjured but seemed very confused.

In your initial post,

  • Determine which one (and only one) of the professionals (i.e., psychologist, psychiatrist, neurologist, or neuropsychologist) is the best choice to evaluate and manage each case.
    • Who do you pick?
    • Why?
    • Why not one of the other practitioners?

In the upcoming Chapter 11, students are introduced to various theories of personality.The Myers Briggs Type Indicator is a personality test that was developed specifically for helping people match their personality types with their job preferences. Since its development, it has been used by many across the nation and still conrtibutes greatly to studies within the field of Psychology.

For this discussion, watch the video, “Intro to the Myers Briggs Personality Test” (, also located under the Discussion Articles/Videos link to the left of the screen and under Helpful Resources). After learning about the assessment and the different personality types introduced within the instrument, try to determine your own type (being sure to identify the four letters related to the category types that you believe best apply to you), then address the following:

–Discuss the value of using such a measure as it relates to mental health, self-improvement, career/personal development, and/or issues related to diversity.

–Discuss your own results and explain what you think they say about who you are as an individual and your own personal development?

Some staff members and customers are resistant to following WorkSafe protocols such as wearing a mask or using social distancing. This is causing a great deal of stress for employee’s and customers. Management is seeking support on how to keep people safe and solving this problem.
