Week 10 Project:
Assessing a client’s biological, psychological, and social history is a holistic approach that is an essential aspect of social work practice. Since one area often affects the other two, it is important to get as accurate an assessment as possible when working with a client. Social workers use the bio-psycho-social tool to communicate specific information, and possible conclusions, about a client to other professionals. It is, at once, a summary of current issues and problems; a listing of past factors that may be relevant to the current situation; and a description of potential issues that may have an effect on the client in the future. In addition to describing the client’s challenges and problems, the assessment identifies strengths and assets that are available to provide support. For this Assignment you create a bio-psycho-social assessment.
Submit a 6- to 9-page paper that focuses on an adolescent from one of the case studies presented in this course. For this assignment, complete a bio-psycho-social assessment and provide an analysis of the assessment. This assignment is divided into two parts:
Part A: Bio-Psycho-Social Assessment: The assessment should be written in professional language and include sections on each of the following:
Presenting issue (including referral source)
Current living situation
Birth and developmental history
School and social relationships
Family members and relationships
Health and medical issues (including psychological and psychiatric functioning, substance abuse)
Social, community, and recreational activities
Client strengths, capacities, and resources
Sister (older sister, college sophomore, relationship not cool)
Brother (older brother, lives in another state, relationship not cool)
Hospitalized multiple times
Last episode two years ago
Part B: Analysis of Assessment. Address each of the following:
Explain the challenges faced by the client(s)—for example, drug addiction, lack of basic needs, victim of abuse, new school environment, etc.
Analyze how the social environment affects the client.
Identify which human behavior or social theories may guide your practice with this individual and explain how these theories inform your assessment.
Explain how you would use this assessment to develop mutually agreed-upon goals to be met in order to address the presenting issue and challenges face by the client.
Explain how you would use the identified strengths of the client(s) in a treatment plan.
Explain how you would use evidence-based practice when working with this client and recommend specific intervention strategies (skills, knowledge, etc.) to address the presenting issue. (use Generalist Intervention Model)
Analyze the ethical issues present in the case. Explain how will you address them.
Describe the issues will you need to address around cultural competence.
Use peer reviewed APA references
NOTE FROM INSTRUCTOR:
Great video post for part A of your final assignment. You are very clear in your application of HBSE to the client, but please make sure you clearly identify a specific theory (e.g. Generalist intervention Model, Ecological Model, Family Systems Theory, ect..) to help in the organization and writing of your final assignment.
Great discussion video. I think this is important as part of your assessment that Dalia’s family should be involved (at some point) in the helping process. In terms of assessment, there should be a point of inquiry into the cultural issues as we see that Daila’s father has different opinion about Dalia’s attitude than her mother. What strategies would you use to decide on what interventions would be appropriate in her case? How would you involve her family in this (besides what you’ve mentioned)?

I have included my week 8 paper which mirrored the discussion post instructor was speaking about.
Hope this helps
