It is vital that as a social worker, the aim is not only to get the patient well but to ensure that after recovery, the patient is empowered. An efficient social worker possesses interpersonal skills that will enable them to interact personally with their patients. For instance, a social worker should be able to establish a relationship with the patient by gaining their trust. This way, the social worker can engage the patient to get deeper insights into the patient’s experiences and perspectives (Hyde, Bowles, & Pawar, 2014). Information learned by the social worker from the patient can be used to develop the most appropriate wellness strategies for the patient.

The news article titled “understanding symptoms of Schizophrenia” describes the various causes and symptoms of this condition and the available treatment measures (Newman, 2020). It also gives an overview of Schizophrenia disorder which is relevant to our week seven topic of discussion in chapter 11 (Dziegielewski & Leon, 2010). Some of the treatment options explained in this article include the use of antipsychotic drugs, counseling, and coordinated specialty care. This gives more understanding of the interventions for clients suffering from psychosis, as discussed in the class chapter. Each client’s needs should be considered when exposing them to different treatment options. Although, most health care experts argue that medication is an important component for patients with Schizophrenia disorders.
