Prior to posting to this discussion, read Chapter 15 in the course text. For this discussion I have picked:
This case is a 19-year-old male with 12 years of education who has worked in the field of construction successfully for the past 2 years. His girlfriend stated that he is often inattentive; she finds that he “spaces out” when they are talking and she frequently has to repeat information to him. He was involved in a car accident 6 months prior and sustained a very brief loss of consciousness, but his Glasgow Coma Scale at admission to the ED was 15/15. There was no evidence of pre- or post-traumatic amnesia

Discuss your differential diagnosis and provide a thorough basis for any diagnoses you have included. Also discuss what (if any) additional testing you would order and how this would be helpful in clarifying the diagnosis. Finally, discuss recommendations for the patient/family for ongoing functioning (social, occupational and academic, if applicable). You must use a minimum of two peer-reviewed articles in your discussion to support your diagnostic conclusions.
Research the approaches used by the following family therapists:
- Murray Bowen (Multigenerational Family Therapy)
- Virginia Satir (Conjoint Family Therapy)

Consider and describe which elements from each approach you are interested in and would consider incorporating into your own practice. Critique and discuss which elements from each approach you find incompatible with your personal style of helping and plan not to necessarily incorporate into your own practice.
Your final deliverable will be a 3- to 5-page Microsoft Word document. Utilize a minimum of three scholarly references. Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
