Define the focal client system that will be the focus of your paper, and describe the developmental issues facing the client system, grounding this discussion in material from the textbook chapter that corresponds to the case study (i.e., the chapter on middle childhood or the chapter on adolescence). How does this developmental lens frame possible goals for social work practice with this client system?
Describe how focal theory #1 would frame what is potentially contributing to the client’s issues, as introduced in section #1. Within this discussion, make sure to cite at least two specific concepts or propositions from the theory, using references to readings and other class materials to ground these ideas. Discuss implications for social work practice with this client system, making sure that these points of application are grounded in the theoretical insights that you discussed in this section.
Describe how focal theory #2 would frame what is potentially contributing to the client’s issues, as introduced in section #1. Within this discussion, make sure to cite at least two specific concepts or propositions from the theory, using references to readings and other class materials to ground these ideas. Discuss implications for social work practice with this client system, making sure that these points of application are grounded in the theoretical insights that you discussed in this section. Throughout this discussion, make explicit how the insights from this theory are similar or different from the theory discussed in section #2.
Use critical thinking skills to identify at least one practice skill that you would like to develop further to optimize your practice with clients facing the focal issue(s) in the case study. Discuss how this practice skill follows from at least one of the two focal theories discussed in sections #2 and #3. Reflect on your level of interest in working on this skill as part of your social work training. For example, do you plan to seek field experiences or pursue additional coursework to help hone these particular practice skills?
Carl’s Struggle for Identity
(Case Study 6.2 from Hutchison )
Carl Fleischer (age 17) is sent to the social worker’s office at the high school. He matter-of-factly shares that he is “an underachiever.” He used to get an occasional B in his classes, but now it’s mostly C’s with an occasional D.
When Carl is asked what he likes to do in his spare time, he replied, “I get high and play Xbox.” Further probing elicits one-word answers until the social worker asks Carl about relationships. His face contorts as he slaps his ample belly: “I’m not exactly a sex symbol. According to my doctor, I’m a fatso. He says normal boys my age and height weigh at least 50 pounds less than I do. He also tells me to quit smoking and get some exercise. Whatever. My mom says I’m big-boned. She says my dad was the same way. I wouldn’t know. I never met the scumbag. He left when my mom was pregnant. But you probably don’t want to hear about that.”
Carl won’t say more on that topic, but with more prodding, he finally talks about his job, delivering pizzas two nights a week and on the weekends. “So if you need pizzas, call me at Antonio’s. I always bring pies home for my mom on Tuesday and Friday nights. She works late those nights and so we usually eat pizza and catch the Tuesday and Friday night lineups on TV. She lets me smoke in the house—cigarettes, not weed. Although I have gotten high in the house a couple times. Anyway, I am not what you would call popular. I am just a fat, slow geek and a pizza guy. But there are some heads who come into Antonio’s. I exchange pies for dope. Works out pretty well: They get the munchies, and the pies keep me in with the heads!”
