Child and Adolescent Disorders

Biopsychosocial – Cultural Model
Traditionally, mental illness was considered mainly a biological problem either inherited or developed due to genetic vulnerability within the individual. This point of view was termed “the medical model.” Treatment was traditionally provided to the individual in one-to-one meetings with a psychiatrist and sessions with a psychotherapist. The field of mental health has evolved from that traditional model to one incorporating many more people, factors, causes, and types of treatment. The biopsychosocial–cultural model incorporates biological, psychological or developmental, family, social, and cultural factors to understand how mental illness develops and how to design effective treatments.

Let’s revisit the Wes Moore cases that we discussed in W1 Assignment 2.

For this assignment, pretend that you are the prison psychologist who completed the evaluation of Wes Moore who was convicted of murder (Moore, 2009).

Write a report of your findings to be filed in Moore’s chart and used by professionals who will be helping Moore. Your report should be in about 700 words over at least 3–4 pages in a Microsoft Word document (not including the title page and the references page).

For the report, complete the following:

First, gather information about the following potential causes of Moore’s outcome from your required readings and other academic sources.
Using all of the gathered information, include the following in your report: Section I—Causes: Provide an explanation of how each of the following factors played a role in causing or affecting Moore’s troubled childhood and eventual imprisonment:
Biological factors (genetic and physiological)
Developmental factors
Psychological factors (emotions and thoughts)
Family and social factors
Cultural factors (environmental and multicultural)
Section II—Prevention: Discuss how Moore’s troubled childhood and eventual imprisonment could have been prevented by early intervention, addressing how the intervention could have been designed to address each of the following:
Psychological factors
Family and social factors
Cultural factors
Section III—Treatment: Recommend some ideas for treatment that Moore should have received in childhood or adolescence to address his negative behaviors, distressing emotions, and/or dysfunctional family dynamics and problematic environment based on all of the following:
Biological factors
Psychological factors
Family and social factors
Apply APA standards to the citation of sources, including the use of in-text citations and full references.
