Write a three page summary and critique of a social work article describing practice with a family. The case study article must be selected from one of the following journals (or similar peer reviewed, professional journal), Child Welfare, Social Work With Groups, Families in Society, Social Work, Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, or a journal approved by the professor. Please select an article relevant to your field agency, place of employment, your agency’s client population, or a personal / social problem addressed by your agency. The article should be practice-oriented and show how the worker used a family practice theory to help a client system. Please note that this type of article is different then a research study article, as it illustrates a service provided, and should appear as a case study. Please review the attached article for an example of what would be appropriate. Your paper should address the following areas (please do NOT write using bullet points but using a full narrative!): ATTACH A COPY OF THE ARTICLE. 1) the characteristics of the family discussed and the presenting problems/challenges; 2) the worker’s theoretical orientation; 3) the worker’s suggestions for how to assess the family; 4) the worker’s description of the family intervention; 5) information on how the worker handled evaluation of effectiveness; 6) diversity issues addressed by the worker and if this is not addressed in the article then discuss any potential issues involving culture and diversity that could have arisen and how the worker could have addressed those with the family; 7) include your own appraisal of the article and comment specifically on two or three lessons from the article that will help you as a family worker NB: The attach article is just a guide in selecting your article for review, please don’t use this one.
