In a clinical case study, the assessment component is often the largest and most comprehensive section. The better you understand a behaviour, the more able you are to plan an intervention that will accurately target it.
We are not expecting a highly detailed or comprehensive assessment component here as you have not been taught how to go about this process at a professional clinical level. As you are the subject here, we are also not expecting you to engage in any formal assessment procedures such as interviews, behavioural observations, or psychometric tests. However, we DO want to see a clear understanding of the range of factors that you need to explore in order to understand the CURRENT FUNCTION AND CONTEXTUAL FACTORS for the chosen behaviour. That is, in this section you will need to provide: A detailed description and analysis of the behaviour which includes discussion of: Contextual factors in which it occurs. This should cover the following (where appropriate): History (when did the subject start having problems with this behaviour? Is the problem always there since it first started, or have there been periods when it gets better/worse?) Situations (does it only occur in certain situations?) People (is it influenced by any other people?) Frequency (How often does it occur?)
