Solving Model And Theoretical Orientation To A Case Study

Sociology homework help

Using the same case study you chose in Week 2 (Ella Shultz Case Study), you will use the problem-solving model AND a theory from the host of different theoretical orientations you have used for the case study. Remember, a theoretical orientation is that it gives the social worker a framework of reference to understand the therapeutic needs of the client. It provides the social worker with a theory-based framework for generating hypotheses about the client’s experience and behaviors, which in turn helps prepare the basis for a specific treatment intervention.

You will prepare a PowerPoint presentation consisting of 11–12 slides,

  • Review and focus on the case study that you chose in Week 2.
  • Use the Analysis of a Theory worksheet to help you dissect the theory. Use this tool to dissect the theory and employ the information in the table to complete your Assignment.
  • Review the problem-solving model, focusing on the five steps of the problem-solving model formulated by D’Zurilla.
  • In addition, review an article that integrated the problem-solving model of crisis intervention: Overview and application.

Your presentation should address the following:

  • Identify the theoretical orientation you have selected to use.
  • Describe how you would assess the problem orientation of the client in your selected case study (i.e., how the client perceives the problem). Remember to keep the theoretical orientation in mind in this assessment stage.
  • Discuss the problem definition and formulation based on the theoretical orientation you have selected.
  • Identify and describe two solutions from all the solutions possible. Remember, some of these solutions should stem from the theoretical orientation you are utilizing.
  • Describe how you would implement the solution. Remember to keep the theoretical orientation in mind.
  • Describe the extent to which the client is able to mobilize the solutions for change.
  • Discuss how you would evaluate whether the outcome is achieved or not. Remember to keep the theoretical orientation in mind.
  • Explain how well the problem-solving model can be used for short-term treatment of this client.
  • Describe one merit and one limitation of using the problem-solving model for this case.
