After reading Chapter 2 in your textbook, as well as conducting outside research on the treatment of mental disorders, consider the following case:
John is 17 and has been drinking heavily since he was 12. He drinks almost every day, but when he is particularly anxious, he drinks until he passes out. His father and his grandfather were diagnosed alcoholics; his father drank himself to death when John was 14. His mother and older brother do not drink at all, and they have always told John that he is the family’s black sheep, the rebellious one who is destined to be like his father.
What do you think is the cause of John’s behavior (biological, psychological, social, sociocultural, or a combination)?
What are the key behaviors that you feel need to be addressed with treatment? Why are these the most important?
Based on the cause of his behaviors, what treatment strategy do you think would be most effective in helping John?
Why is this the best-fitting strategy for treating John?
