Client Description of Situation:
The client’s name is Marvin Brown, commonly known as Marv, sought assistance from our agency due to the multitude of challenges he was facing in his life. At the age of 29, Marvin was single and had been honorably discharged from the Army. Initially, he had joined the Army intending to earn money to complete his college education. However, after managing only two years of a four-year program, he had to drop out due to financial constraints and the desire to avoid accumulating loan debt. Uncertain about his academic path, Marvin enlisted in the Army and was stationed in a combat unit in Afghanistan. His time there was a mix of both positive and deeply distressing experiences. The haunting memories of his service often plagued his sleep, causing him to fear falling asleep and reliving those nightmares. Consequently, he resorted to combining his prescribed sleeping pills and antidepressants with alcohol in order to attain some rest, despite being aware of the risks involved. “I combine prescription sleeping pills and my antidepressant with beer just to get a little sleep” he states.  Presently, Marvin is employed at a convenience store. However, his recent incident of falling asleep on the job has resulted in his boss warning him that another occu
ence will lead to termination he stated “The boss told me today that I’ll be fired if I fall asleep on the job one more time.” This has left Marvin in a state of great distress and anxiety, as he is unable to afford his apartment and fears becoming homeless. Although he states, “My parents say that I can live with them”, Marvin is reluctant to stay with them and be a burden to them with his troubles. He is overwhelmed and perplexed, yearning to regain stability, complete his education, establish a career, and start afresh. Marvin states “I want to start living again”, but he finds himself at a loss, unsure of where or how to begin. It is for these reasons that Marvin seeks the assistance of our agency.

He required support to realign his life, achieve stability, and em
ace a fulfilling existence once again. Since then, he has been grappling with the question of how and where to begin. He seeks guidance and suggestions on completing his education and pursuing a career.

Marvin Brown Progress
Name:            Team:    4    Assigned Role: Nurse Practitioner    
Client Name:
Status of Progress Toward Goal (client and worker use a Likert scale to identify status of progress)
· On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being goal/outcome achieved and 1 being no progress toward goal/outcome achievement, rate progress toward goal by bolding the number that represents the status of progress:
If the rating is below 10, what will it take to get the rating to a 10? Do any activities need to be added, deleted or changed to get the rating to a 10?
· If yes, describe the activities and how they are intended to achieve the goal/outcome.
As a nurse practitioner, I am close to my goal of helping Mr. Brown. However, in order to reach to a 10 on the Likert scale, I still need to focus on improving the mental health of Mr. Brown. Furthermore, I also need to ensure that I help him with a stable housing facility within a period of six months. As a nurse practitioner at the agency, it is important that I help Mr. Brown find a steady job. Furthermore, I need to make sure that Mr. Brown is attending all his therapy sessions. I also need to evaluate his mental health. Furthermore, my activities to reach a score of 10 should be focused on the medical compliance of the patient. I must help him recover from the trauma and imbibe cognitive behavioral characteristics.
· If the activities need to change, identify who is responsible for each activity.
There is a shared responsibility to ensure that the activities described above help in meeting the goals. The responsibility is shared between me and the psychiatrist of Mr. Brown, who has to provide the therapy sessions as well as the physician who has been prescribing medicines for Mr. Brown
Does the goal/outcome need to be changed? If yes, describe.
No change in the goal outcome is required as of now. The goal is clear to help Mr.
own to be stable in his life again by helping him improve his mental health, by making him get a steady job, and by helping him to find a stable housing facility. We as an agency also need to focus on drug abuse by Mr. Brown and need to ensure this does not continue in the future.
If the goal needs to change, describe why and what it will look like for the client when the new goal/outcome is reached. What will be different in the client’s life?
If in case the goals need to be changed, the first thing to focus on will be helping Mr. Brown change certain traits of his behavior and personality through therapy sessions and counseling sessions with the psychiatrist. Also, it is essential that he is free from other tensions in life such as housing and a stable job. Also, it is important to make him understand that staying with his parents will help him improve his mental health and will also help him avoid nightmares. If the new goals and outcomes are reached, the client will have stable mental health and will no longer consider him to be a burden for his parents. It is evident from the case study that Mr. Brown is a retired army personnel and therefore he must be taught
