Simulated Client
Paper details:
Add sources related to CBT and SFT but they must be from the past five years. The paper is below. Could you please ensure the directions are followed precisely and include an introduction that is a mini formulation? Focus less on cancer and more on comparing CBT and SFT and how they relate to the client telling his family he wants to stop treatment.

provide a brief
(one to two pages) introductory statement that should include identifying information, such as
the presenting problem(s), client circumstances, strengths, difficulties, and relevant history.
Develop two different clinical formulations drawing on two of the theoretical frameworks we
have reviewed this semester. Include at least 10 references to relevant literature and research.
Compare and contrast:
o How does each framework deepen or enrich your understanding of your client?
o What does each framework suggest in relation to clinical interventions and
o Which of the two frameworks do you find most relevant and useful? How and
o What research evidence can you find, if any, that supports the use of this approach
with this client? What are the strengths and limitations of the evidence?
