Integration Paper PAS 2.1.5 Advance human rights and social and economic justice (pb a,b, and c) 1. Integration Paper: (Signature Assignment) The Task: Choose a case of a client you are working with in your field practicum and write up the scenario and analyze it according to what you have learned in previous courses (HBSE I and II, Practice I, II and III, Policy, Research, and other courses). Write a paper 10 pages in length and utilize APA format 12 point Times New Roman font. Please organize your paper by headings to ensure that you cover all areas listed above. Please note that title page and reference page do not count in page length requirement. Please addresses all of the following areas and organize your paper by the following headings: 2. Background: Give a thorough demographic and bio-psychosocial background of the client.(1-3 pages) Background information can include demographic and personal information such as client age, gender/gender identity, family situation, occupation, marital status, family composition, ethic and/or cultural background, pertinent family history, or, in larger macro systems, background information can include social, political, and economic demographics, key actors, relevant social policies and organizational context(s). Note: Background information must be disguised sufficiently to preserve anonymity and confidentiality. Change names, even location identification where appropriate and necessary. 3. Theory: Analyze the scenario based upon the theories you have learned about. Include a discussion of the application of systems theory and the ecological model as well as one other theoretical model. 4. Empowerment: Discuss empowerment and how it is or could be applied in your scenario. Please provide specific examples. 5. Levels of practice: Discuss the different levels of involvement of social work practice in the scenario (include all three levels-micro, mezzo, and macro (Each level of practice should be listed as a separate heading section)). Also discuss biological, psychological, and sociological context of the issues which you identify as problem for the client (Each of these should also be a separate heading section). 6. Diversity: Then, discuss the presence of diversity in the scenario. What issues of oppression are present? What issues of discrimination are present? Provide specific examples of both. Address the uniqueness(es) of this client system or client that may be important and might include cultural background, culture in the context of the community/region, how difference(s) may shape personal experiences. Conversely, the student should address how the community and its context may influence the client system or client. 7. Social Work Roles: What roles might a social worker play in this scenario? (Remember a social work role is different than a skill) How could you advocate for human rights and social and economic justice in this client scenario? How might you be able to engage in practices that advance social and economic justice for this client scenario? 8. Ethics: What ethical dilemmas (if any) are being faced or might be encountered? What parts of the code of ethics (be specific) apply to this client scenario? (Be specific and cite the NASW Code of Ethics please) Address relevant ethical issues, ethical conflicts, and any other ethical principles that are important in this case analysis. Identify any personal and/or professional issues that may be important with regard to your professional practice, self-correction, and ability to communicate effectively with the client system or client. 9. Identification of the Problem: Assess the situation. What is the problem and give me some potential solutions to the problem. Further, in the description of the problem that the client/client system is experiencing, provide information from professional journal articles that give insight(s) into typical intervention approaches that are used to address this problem. This description of the problem and explanation about that problem area should include relevant published information about the problem (contextualize the problem). Include available statistical information that describes the social problem area. For example, if the person is experiencing great stress due to loss of a job, then, the student would address the prevalence of job losses in that community, possibly examining job losses by industry, gender, etc. 10. Interventions in Evidence-Based Practice: What interventions would you apply in this client scenario? What is one evidenced-based intervention that you might apply in this scenario? Describe what intervention approach(es)/strategy(ies) has been specifically chosen to help remediate this problem, helping the client/client system resume more effective and productive functioning. As an example, a student could address the use of a particular medication that helps a person experiencing a mental health issue. And, the client might also be engaging in a particular type of treatment group. The student would describe both interventions that are being used to help this client. The student must ground their intervention in the professional literature. The student should describe these interventions and provide research (evidence-based practice) for these interventions from the professional journals articles. How would you handle this kind of client situation if it occurred in your professional practice in the future? Describe your intervention with this client system or client, specifically addressing: 1. The initiation of the intervention process 2. The on-going re-assessment process 3. The process of monitoring the client system in the intervention phase 4. Any supervision relevant to the student’s engagement with the case 5. An evaluation of the effectiveness of the intervention 6. Address the ending/termination process with the client 11. Conclusion: Provide a personal reflection and identify what might be changed in the future, what is valuable about this case and presenting this case for this paper. Approximately 8-12 professional peer reviewed journal articles must be used for this paper.
