Family genogramy analysis

ORDER THE PAPER NOW

For the course project, you will develop a hypothetical couple or family case. The purpose of this project is to provide you an opportunity to review and reflect on your clinical development of a case study. You will develop a genogram for this fictional couple or family and choose from specific theoretical models to use, depending on your degree program. The analysis will include theory-based interventions that align with the clinical model chosen.
Your project will include three parts:
• Case overview with supporting genogram.
• Theoretical model and interventions.
• Reflection.
You will need to use and cite a minimum of eight scholarly resources. The length of the paper should be a minimum of 12 typed double spaced pages.
Case Overview With Supporting Genogram
In 2–3 paragraphs, provide a general description of your selected case, an identification of the clients, and any other presenting information that sets a context for the case and your work with it. Create a supporting genogram that aligns with the narrative for this hypothetical case. The case should include a family system—that is, at least two clients in a relationship with each other. You may choose a family or a couple. Be sure to identify who is attending the sessions.
Theoretical Model and Interventions
Learners in the Marriage and Family Counseling/Therapy program, choose from this list of theoretical models:
• Strategic family therapy, including the MRI and Milan models (theorists: Weakland, Jackson, Watzlawick, Haley, Madanes, Palazzoli, Boscolo, Cecchin, Prata).
• Intergenerational family therapy (theorist: Bowen).
• Structural family therapy (theorist: Minuchin).
Learners in the Mental Health Counseling program, choose from this list of theoretical models:
• Bioecological theory (theorist: Bronfenbrenner).
• Structural family therapy (theorist: Minuchin).
• Intergenerational family therapy (theorist: Bowen).
After you have identified the theoretical model you will use, complete the following:
• Identify the theoretical model you used, and provide a brief overview of the model. Include the theory of change, stance of the therapist, and founding theorists. It is important to use peer-reviewed references to support your discussion of the theory; look for seminal articles written by the founding theorists.
• Include interventions that are used according to the model, providing questions you would ask during the therapy session. Include a discussion on these questions and how the interventions used relate to the theoretical model. For example, if you were using solution-focused therapy, you might ask the miracle question or a scaling question.
Reflection
In 1–2 pages, write a conclusion summarizing what you learned about yourself as a counselor or therapist. Address the following:
• How have you learned as a counselor or therapist to take care of yourself?
• What are some areas you recognize as strengths and challenges?
• When do you think it is important for a counselor or therapist to seek supervision?
• What will you do as a counselor or therapist to increase your own awareness of diversity when working with clients? Provide examples.
• What are some possible issues that may arise when working with a client from a different cultural background from yours?
Project Objectives
To successfully complete this project, you will be expected to:
1. Identify strengths and challenges.
2. Create a genogram of a family subsystem.
3. Identify awareness of diversity.
4. Develop a systemically based case conceptualization.
5. Reflect on when it is appropriate to seek supervision.
6. Write in a clear and professional manner, using APA style.
