Next, consider whether the patient has any special issues [Section 29] that need to be considered.
The bulk of the map addresses the preferred type of treatment [Section 30] – individual, couple, family or group for this patient. Because there are so many options for individual treatment, it is further divided on the map.
Some possibilities for individual treatment include
- Supportive therapy [Section 35]
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy [Section 34]
- Psychodynamic therapy [Section 32]
- Interpersonal therapy [Section 33]
- Medication [Section 39]
Having decided on the type of treatment for this patient, go on to Map 4.
