SMART Goals and Service Plan for a Client. Must be original work with no plagiarism!!!! Please make sure and follow the grading rubric and answer each question to its entirety. Service Plan Template is attached and so is my e-textbook with reference. This paper must have in-text citations and sources that I can look up online.
First part in a separate paper:
Professionals who provide case management services to their clients use goals to structure the service plan. It is important to create specific behaviors that will remove the barriers to treatment while increasing the client’s self-sufficiency skills. Without goals, it is unlikely that the client and the professional would be successful in their work. Many professionals use the SMART goal approach. This includes writing short-term, mid-term, and long-term goals.
Watch the following video to ensure you are creating S.M.A.R.T. goals:
Kaplan University. (2013) S.M.A.R.T. Goal Setting. [Video file]. Retrieved from http://extmedia.kaplan.edu/artsSCi/CE100/CEO100_1308D/SMART_Presentation.html.
Read the following scenario and try to develop goals for this client. Be prepared to explain why you would set these goals and how the client would know when the goals have been met.
Hanna is in treatment at your mental health center for Acute Stress Disorder. She tells you that recently, she is unable to think clearly at night because she begins to feel anxious that her oldest son will not return safely from his military deployment. She adds that her boss has given her two extra shifts a week at her call center job. It is overwhelming during those shifts the client reports because they are the heaviest call times. Client stated that she is in line for a promotion, so does not want to refuse the shifts. Client then reported that she has not been eating or sleeping well because she has to drink wine to get to sleep at night. Client stated that she thinks that she needs to drink to get to sleep now. When asked about her children, client stated that she and her husband have custody of them, but her youngest daughter is causing a lot of trouble in school. She thinks that the daughter might have a mental health or learning disability issue but is unsure. The client mentions that her husband might contact the school because he is really good with working with the children on their homework at night. Before leaving the session, the client reported that her stomach has been hurting for the past week and she can barely move sometimes because of the cramps.

- Write three S.M.A.R.T. goals for her long-term needs. Include one goal that relates to the development of self-sufficiency skills.
- Explain the barriers to treatment that are in the scenario and propose at least two agencies in your local area (Central California) that could provide services for her.

Second and third part…
This part of the Assignment is in two parts, the first is to use the S.M.A.R.T. goals that you Discussed in the above paper as the basis for a hypothetical case plan for Hanna (scenario is above). Use the Sample Service Plan found in DocSharing (Attached) to create a short service plan using her presenting problem and the goals to remove her barriers to treatment. Remember to base the goals on her strengths. Then, do some research to find at least three agencies in your local area (Central California) that could provide these services.
In the second part of this Assignment, write a 1,200-word APA formatted paper that answers the questions below. Remember to base your responses on the service plan that you created in the first portion of the Assignment. When you are finished, add your paper to the service plan and submit it as one Assignment.
In your paper, respond to these questions:
- What is Hanna’s presenting problem? How has this kept her from focusing on her treatment?
- Describe Hanna’s barriers to treatment and how those could be prevented or minimized.
