What socio-cultural factors did you consider and what was your learning?
Summative Assessment Component 1: COURSEWORK (100% weighting) You will submit two case studies in two written assignments of 2500 words (+/- 10%) each (100% weighting). Each case study will be based on a recorded session from your clinical practice demonstrating at least 2 evidence-based interventions per recording. These will be recordings from two separate clients. The case studies will demonstrate the
student’s ability to critically analyse the evidence base for the context of their therapeutic practice. It will also demonstrate the student’s ability to critically analyse the therapeutic alliance taking account of the implications of socio-cultural and diversity factors that may influence the
therapeutic relationship. Each case study should contain a Trans-theoretical Model; case formulation; BASIC ID and Risk Assessment in the appendix. Case study guidance The following section outlines suggested headings and the content that should be covered for each heading. This will help you present your case study in a logical manner, and will also help you to ensure you address the learning outcomes. Please make sure that you reference your work using the Harvard referencing system. Please also make sure that the case studies meet the learning
outcomes found at the start of the module handbook.
