Cover Letter This essay made me do a lot of thinking about what family meant to me. There were a lot of words that came to mind but I came to the conclusion of only a few. There are SO many different definitions of family, love, support, etc. Not many of those definitions fit mine exactly but they do include some things I would say. In order for me to have a solid foundation for my essay, I did a little research on other people’s definition of family and saw how they would describe it.
This case analysis is primarily about the work I undertook with a young person and his family. I was allocated the case quite early on my placement. Initially, I struggled with it because I did not have enough knowledge of the support the agency could give. Working with this family had been very challenging, but I gained a lot of experience which had reinforced my professional development (D1,D2). To adhere to the Code of Ethics for Social Work, I got an informed consent from the young person and his family to use their information for this assignment.
The Structural Family Therapy Model, stated by Minuchin, “explains how families maintain problematic behaviors…” along with what is written by Minuchin and Fishman, “…which leads to symptom reduction because a new structure develops in the family…” (as cited in Reiter, 2016, p. 25).

Some patients fail to realise that this step is necessary for the doctor to make an accurate diagnosis.

This experience has validated my desire to be a counselor.
“The child 's only advocate is the parent who lacked the courage to apply discipline” (Guelph Murphy 2006). The children wouldn 't be so out of control if their parents just applied discipline when they start acting up. “These days parents go to the internet, take self- administered surveys, and diagnose their children and choose a medication without ever stepping foot in a psychiatrist 's office” (Guelph Murphy 2006). Parents nowadays trust people on the internet more than a psychiatrist. The next reason why children are being misdiagnosed is because schools don 't question a misdiagnosis because they get more funding.
With the high rate of divorce and break ups in our society today, couples counseling is highly needed to help partners work out relationships instead of ending them. It is heartbreaking for many people who invest time in a relationship to give up due to some challenging issues that they cannot work through. Couples counseling focuses on helping couples learn how to deal with their problems and learn how to better communicate with each other.
