Explain the concept of the Bio-Psycho- Social assessment and the importance of this assessment in understanding a client.
The bio-psycho-social assessment focuses on three important life areas in regards to a client. It addresses biological/medical concerns and contributing factors [i.e. understanding how hypothyroidism may manifest depressive symptoms, depression may be manifested by a biological cause], psychological factor which aim to understand development of the individual in the realm of major milestones, and history of family psychological concerns [i.e. information that may be necessary to differentiate between diagnoses by understanding a client's history], and social relating the an individual's cultural/ethnic influences, income level, profession, level of education, employment history, socio-economic status, and environment in which they live. These are import factors in understanding how the individual perceives his/her environment and in creating relatable interventions to assist the client with their therapeutic goals. The combination of these concepts helps to understand an individual as a person rather than a patient or a client, and seeks to build on the individual's current strengths to assist in the success of their treatment.
A right triangle has has a hypotenuse of 65 inches. One leg is is 16 inches. Using the Pythagorean Theorem, determine the length of the unknown leg.
I order to solve this equation you must apply the concept of the pythagorean theorem which is as follows: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 Once applied this problem is simply about combining like terms and isolating the variable. See example below: c=25 b=16 a^2 +16 =25 -16 -16 a^2 = 9 The length of the unknown leg is 9 inches.
