Reflect on one’s personal background and impact on one’s work with this family system.
For this assignment, you will use the characters and relationships in the film Encanto to apply a systems model of marriage and family therapy (with interventions), using what you have learned about individual development, interpersonal neurobiological issues, family life cycle stages, and the systemic assessment of child and family relationships that is culturally appropriate. The identified problem is something the parents have presented regarding their child.
This assignment should include the following:
A systems model upon which you will interpret the client family problem and base your proposed interventions and treatment goals supported with effectiveness research and best practices.
A demonstration of awareness of ways ethical and legal requirements impact your clinical work with this family from a systemic perspective.
A summary of your assessment findings using what you have learned about individual development, interpersonal neurobiological issues, family life cycle stages, and the systemic assessment of child and family relationships. This will include a diagnosis based on relational observations using best practices in systemic assessment.
Apply systemic assessment tools that are multicultural and developmentally appropriate. Complete a genogram as part of your assessment process. You may use the animal genogram or the traditional genogram. Whichever one you choose, make sure that you include three generations, delineate the relationship patterns using connecting lines, and include a key that explains what the relationship lines indicate. Make observations about the themes and patterns you see across the genogram and the questions you asked in order to learn about the family during the creation of the genogram.
Identify developmental issues and analyze risk factors for the child.
Identify the family members with whom you would work.
Reflect on one’s personal background and impact on one’s work with this family system.
