ACTIVITY 2 INSTRUCTIONS (5-page paper)
For assignment you are interviewing a real person. Generally social work classes have an internship however I have learned that many of you are not in an internship. You then will interview someone from work, family or friend (if one of these individuals you do not need to ask interviewing questions that may be too personal such as trauma, identity or other areas you feel are inappropriate.) The assessment is to be written as a narrative just like you were doing an assessment on an individual for therapy which is discussed I your Understanding Generalist Practice text book. I included an email as an example just to give you an outline of one that has been completed.
The name and detailed information that you provide on the person interviewed will be a pseudo name for the individual as you do not need to give me their really name and contact information.
Part of the assessment in the rubric does include a contract
You only have to do one map with content together thus geno-gram and eco-map can be one diagram with all the content combined.
The assessment is to be done in narrative format, using the major 6 headings to distinguish between the sections of the assessment (Use these headings in your assessment to make it easy to read). The narrative format is using complete sentences and all aspects of good writing as delineated below. You are to include all information that you consider relevant to the individual’s presenting problem(s) and strengths/resources. The length of the assessment should be long enough to do the job, but also concise and focused on both the problem(s) and strengths/resources with a concluding summarization.
1.) Name of individual:
4.) Date of birth/age:
6.) Marital /Relational Status:
7.) Sexual Orientation:
8.) Occupation / Employer:
12.) Other (important identifying data):
This section is written in narrative form and should be a succinct, but comprehensive, reporting of the individual’s perception of the problem. You should include the duration, severity and frequency of the problem(s), antecedent conditions and consequences of the problem(s), and the individual’s prior attempts to cope with the problem(s).
Description of the Individual and his/her Environment:
The subsections of this category are written in narrative form. It includes data gathered from the individual, information from the eco-map, observations of the individual, and the student’s interpretation of the significance of this information to the individual’s presenting problem. Quote where appropriate, be specific and factual. Make sure your interpretation of the situation is based on observation and facts rather than your personal speculation.
· Family/Household Social (mezzo) System: Describe the composition of the individual’s family or household, and the quality of the relationships between members. Based on the individual’s statements, provide your interpretation of the family/household membership functioning. [Include Geno-gram]
Several subsections are a part of this category. You should respond to the information required in each section. You are to use a narrative format that offers an explanation of the individual’s situation. Include the information that is relevant to the presenting problem. Explore the ways in which the individual coped, both positively and negatively, with significant events in their life.
Strengths and Resources:
Give an in-depth description of the individual’s strengths and resources both from the past and the present. Discuss how the individual’s strengths might have deteriorated or developed over time and why. Also, reveal what strengths have remained intact. It will help to review the five (5) types of questions Kirst-Ashman discusses in Highlight 2.5 on page 79 of the Understanding Generalist Practice text when writing about the individual’s strength and resources.
Initial Assessment Summarization:
This section is the most critical part of the initial work with the individual. It is formulated as a succinct narrative statement that combines the theoretical and conceptual knowledge base about human behavior with data about the individual. You will interpret the data provided by the individual to determine what are the individual’s problems and strengths in order to start the process of bringing satisfactory resolution to their situation.
Included in this section are:
1. A restatement of the presenting problem; additional problems, identified from the interview, that bear on the presenting problem
2. Relevant aspects of the individual’s bio-psycho-social-spiritual history that influence the existence or resolution of the problem.
3. Personal, social and community resources, and support systems available to the individual and, resources (personal – environmental) that need to be developed to increase the individual’s capacity to resolve the problem at a level that is satisfactory to the individual.
Part 2: Practice I Individual Assessment: CONTRACT (25 points)
For the Contract, identify one Goal with at least two Objectives and two Action Steps per Goal. There can be flexible with the number of objectives and action steps defined as you individualize your contract to the individual’s situation. You can plan too little or too much, so remember to ‘start where the individual is’ and move from there in “baby steps.” Use the information in the “Understanding Generalist Practice” text to guide your goal-setting process.
Based on your assessment of the individual, discuss the broadly stated goals for social work services and how they derived from the individual’s problems. Give an explanation for how you chose your intervention strategy. Discuss each objective in such a way that they are specific and measurable. Next, describe what action steps are needed in order to work toward achievable objectives.
