Items to be grades

Possible points

Your grade

  1. Arrange these facts in sections and in complete paragraphs.



  1. Design a genogram and ecomap based on the information you see.



  1. List a set of questions you still need information for to help you understand this family?



  1. What are the issues that you would like to work on?



  1. What assets (strengths) do the clients have that will assist them in addressing the issues?






As many of you dive into organizing the material for Raul and his family I am getting questions and all of you should benefit from the answers. 
1. You decide who the client is, Raul, or the family that decision frames the written work and the ecomap. 
2. You refer to yourself in the third person as the worker, clinician, or social worker. 
3. Do not repeat information in multiple areas, report it once in the most appropriate location. You can identify the titles of each category. 
4. There are a lot of questions you could ask Raul and his mother. Your goal is to ask the most relevant questions to complete the story. 
5. Questions that start with why put people on the defense and assume judgment. Try instead the other relative pronouns: what, how, where, who, when rather than why. I know you are all dying to know about why they bought the boat, don't ask it like that!
