Social
workers understand methods of assessment with diverse clients and
constituencies to advance practice effectiveness and understand theories of
human behavior and the social environment, and critically evaluate and apply
this knowledge to effectively intervene with clients and constituencies. Social
workers understand the global interconnections of oppression and human rights
violations, and are knowledgeable about theories of human need and social
justice and strategies to promote social and economic justice and human rights.
Social workers understand strategies designed to eliminate oppressive
structural barriers to ensure that social goods, rights, and responsibilities
are distributed equitably and that civil, political, environmental, economic,
social, and cultural human rights are protected. Choose one of the following
family vignettes and create a thorough treatment plan which illustrates the
intersectionality of the above factors. Include at least six long-term goals.
Develop at least five objectives and six interventions for each long-term goal.
Be sure to include any sub-system work needed and work with other agencies.
1. The
Juarez family is comprised of three children: Juan, age 15; Jesus, age 12; and
Sarah, age 5. The parents are originally from Mexico and have had all three
children here since they immigrated 16 years ago. They are still in the process
of obtaining citizenship. They struggle with making ends meet and both parents
speak limited English. Jesus has been experiencing mood problems at school and
angers easily. He often gets into fights and is on probation for assault. He is
quiet most of the time and is having trouble sleeping. The other two children
are doing fine, but the parents are concerned that Sarah is overly anxious. The
parents do not always agree on discipline as Mr. Juarez believes that spanking
with a board is appropriate, and they have been reported to Child Protective
Services for abuse. The family is strong in its faith and regularly attends
Catholic Mass. The family has been referred to you through Child Protective
Services.
2. The
Smith family is a blended family with five children. The father, John, has
three children from a previous marriage: Josh, age 10; Emily, age 7; and June,
age 5. Their step-mother (Becky) has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals
most of her life. Becky’s second husband has been accused of sexually abused
their two girls while she battled substance abuse and mental illness. The
father was notified by Child Services once the girls told their aunt, and he
has custody of them at this time. Becky’s divorce was problematic, and she has
a strained relationship with her ex-husband. She and her stepson Josh have
heated arguments and she suspects he has been using drugs and alcohol. She is
very controlling and consistently argues with teachers and other authority
figures about how to interact with her stepson. Both John and Becky work
full-time and struggle with poverty and are afraid of the court costs that
could occur from the sexual abuse charges. They live in a rural town. They have
self-referred to you for parent-child problems concerning Becky and her stepson
Josh.
3. The
Bell family consists of a single mom raising her two sons. They have just moved
from a family shelter as Mrs. Bell has left an abusive husband. Her eldest is
Sam, age 15 and her youngest is Joe, who is 12. They are African American. She
works part time at two jobs to make ends meet. Sam experienced a lot of mixed
feelings lately regarding his sexuality, but does not want anyone to know. He
is bullied at school and does not have any friends. He does not like sports,
but does prefer drama class. He is failing in most of his classes. He often
masturbates while thinking about other boys and has viewed a few gay websites.
His mother is unaware of his struggles; she just thinks he is depressed. Joe
has also had problems with his peers and they have been picked up by the police
for vandalism on several occasions. She is unsure what to do to help her boys
and is not sure about therapy. The family has been referred to you by the
school
