The Outcome of Behavioral Intervention with a Person Living with Schizophrenia Who Exhibited Medication Noncompliance: A Case Study
Kanahara, Shunsuke
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v5 n3-4 p252-263 2009
The behavioral counseling of a withdrawn and noncompliant schizophrenic South American person, who is an immigrant, by an Asian counselor taking place in the United States is introduced. Although some difficulties, such as a language barrier, exist in the clinical setting, a behavioral assessment to analyze the client's issues through focusing on overt matters is accomplished, and a behavior contract that is generated from the assessment promotes the intervention by educating the client about prospective procedures. The client starts taking medications, going for walks, and having more communications with his family as the result of the counseling.
