The ethical considerations when working with 11-18 year old children is these LAC have experience interference in their childhood which has led them to be taken into the care system. Their vulnerably and complex issues will have to be taken into consideration and these issues need to be taken into consideration throughout the whole study. The sensitivity of these children sharing parts of their life experiences and talking about the local authority whom make decisions about their future needs empathy. The young people having to talk negatively after meetings may be a restricted or worried. So, the location for these young people to discuss their views after meetings need to also be taken into consideration so they do not give misleading or inadequate
Name: Kasim Jawad (name changed for confidentiality) Age: 10 Family Dynamic: Lives with mother (father working overseas), one older sibling(sister), middle class family Why did I choose this client? I was informed about Kasim by my placement supervisor on my first day of placement. She mentioned to me that she struggled with Kasim because at times he displayed disrespectful behaviour towards her. He is an above average student, however, the big issue with his academics is his effort.
This is Eromosele, I love Grand Canyon University. A dysfunctional family will have parallel problems with acheiving its goal. A Family Structural Theory enables the nurse to identify how family members intaract with one another to establish a baseline. The nurse is able to concenterate on interactions as a pattern of behavior when assessing how, why and what circumstances do they behave in this way, what is their boundries, how they organize as family, in time of changes, how is their adaptation, like illness, or crises. If these family intaractions yeild positive outcome, the nurse can use the Family Structural Theory to facilitate improvement in family functioning.
Assessment is also taken care of, as the family knows their strengths and limitations. They need intervention as they still need help resolving their concerns and problems, they need initiate actions to achieve their goals. The family has needed to change their lives around some to accommodate for the new family member that will be living with them, which is a primary need. They need to find a way to handle the new family member and the needs of this new member, as their needs are not needs that the family has had to deal with. The family has already changed how their live is as they have hired extra help; Teresa has changed her schedule around to accommodate for her mother’s needs and doctor appointments.

In the video entitled, “Confessions of A Dysfunctional Family: A Structural Family Systems Approach,” I liked that the therapist was trying to help the family by using a structural approach. This video lines up with the concepts discussed in chapter 12 of our textbook. Family structure is known as an invisible set of functional demands that organize the way in which family members interact (Gladding, 2015). This is a very important concept and so is the concept of parental subsystems or those who are responsible for the care, protection, and socialization of children (Gladding, 2015). This is the idea of the hierarchy that the therapist mentioned in the video.
In conclusion, Andrea has a very difficult time establishing herself as a young adult due to her illness and having to care for a son who has a disability. She requires a great deal of help in order to be considered a good functioning individual. The Family Systems Theory pays close attention to families such as Andreas as her mental health issues has affected her family as they all worry about her and Vincent’s safety. Due to her suicide attempts, she has left The Child Protective Service with no other option but to remove Vincent from her care. This theory works very well with Andrea’s case study as it can be useful in helping her uncover the problems she is currently encountering and also teaches her better ways of coping with them.
Clinical Observation Based on my observations of Sarah and her family I believe that Sarah would benefit more by staying at her home with her family. Though Sarah is being taken care of by her family, I am very concerned with her behavior towards herself and her family. First, I think that Sarah needs to be seen by a doctor so that her condition can be diagnosed and so her family can know how to continue to better take care of her. I also believe that Sarah needs to be taught how to communicate whether it’s verbal or nonverbally, so that she can better communicate with her family. Why?
In Structural Family Therapy, a therapist would be recognised as belonging to this school as they would work with the family closely, on where dysfunctions in the system are present, they do so by creating new patterns of interaction within the family. When the new pattern are repeated within a family, this will improve the context of the system. By stabilising and replacing the old unhelpful patterns and symptoms within the system, it is able to reduce or eliminate the families dysfunctionality Some of the things a Structural Family Therapist can be seen doing include, maintaining a focus on altering the dysfunctional family’s structure by creating effective hierarchy’s. A Structural Family Therapist views problems as failures with adjusting to change. The therapists role is not to solve the problem, instead it’s to allow the family to take control of their own problem, and work together to solve the conflicts within the system.
This essay discusses how the family is viewed by two different sociological perspectives- functionalism and conflict theory. Firstly, ‘family’ is defined. Secondly, the main ideas of functionalism will be discussed followed by how this theory perceives the family. The main ideas of Conflict Theory will then be examined and how conflict theorists perceive the family.
I enjoyed researching for my family tree project and finding out more about my family. My research began when I sat down and filled out the “Family Tree” given to me by Mrs. Leyes. I filled out the tree with the names that I knew and then I sat down with my parents to get the missing information. After I completed the tree, I knew that I needed to sit down or call as many people that I could.
How might the following 3 theoretical approaches explore the topic of poverty in the family - structural functionalism, social conflict, symbolic interactionism? Structural functionalism a framework for building theory that sees society as a complex system whose parts work together to promote solidarity and stability (Macionis et al,2013, p.10). Structural functionalism can be a very valuable theory when addressing poverty. It focuses on the structure of things and can be used to analyze the effects that structure has on poverty.
Family theories have been used throughout the history of nursing to help guide patient care and provide the best patient outcomes. Certain theories may be more applicable to the specific patient encounter; however, each theory has benefits and drawbacks to their use. The purpose of this paper is to examine two selected theories, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. I will also discuss a theoretical family in relation to one theory, and how that theory can be best integrated into the care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN). Description of Theories
The children learned basic norms and values from the parents. The parents supply the economic needs for the child such as foods and education (ResviseSociology, 2014). In a family, different person performs different role and function such as a mother should take care of her child. The important is the child can feel the love and support from their parents (Gordon, 1997). Family dysfunction may appear in broken families, violent families and divorced families, etc.
My reflection essay on my visit to both AMKFSC and TOUCH SAC will cover my understanding of key issues tackled by the agencies, assessment of the social worker’s approaches, application of theories and perspectives learnt to these real-life scenarios, and lastly, emerging trends in these areas and action taken by the agencies. The TOUCH SAC tackles the issue of aging gracefully while AMKFSC tackles the solving of familial problems alongside the strengthening of the family as a unit. These issues are often multidimensional and complicated; aging gracefully requires more than the fulfillment of physical needs e.g. food and shelter, but also the fulfillment of emotional needs e.g. companionship and recognition. Likewise, familial problems and
