SOCW 6111 Week 5 Assignment - Comprehensive Assessment Paula Cortez, Answered

Document Content and Description Below

SOCW 6111 Week 5 Assignment - Comprehensive Assessment A comprehensive understanding of a client’s presenting problems depends on the use of multiple types of assessment models. Each model gathers d... ifferent information based on theoretical perspective and intent. An assessment that focuses on one area alone not only misses vital information that may be helpful in planning an intervention, but may encourage a biased evaluation that could potentially lead you to an inappropriate intervention. When gathering and reviewing a client’s history, sometimes it is easier to focus on the problems and not the positive attributes of the client. In social work, the use of a strengths perspective requires that a client’s strengths, assets, and resources must be identified and utilized. Further, using an empowerment approach in conjunction with a strengths perspective guides the practitioner to work with the client to identify shared goals. You will be asked to consider these approaches and critically analyze the multidisciplinary team’s response to the program case study of Paula Cortez. For this Assignment, review the program case study of the Cortez family. Be sure to Include the following topics and headings. In a 2- to 4-page paper, complete a comprehensive assessment of Paula Cortez, utilizing two of the assessment models provided in Chapter 5 of the course text. · Using the Cowger article, identify at least two areas of strengths in Paula’s case. · Analyze the perspectives of two members of the multidisciplinary team, particularly relative to Paula’s pregnancy. · Explain which model the social workers appear to be using to make their assessment. · Describe the potential for bias when choosing an assessment model and completing an evaluation. · Suggest strategies you, as Paula’s social worker, might try to avoid these biases.
