Assessment 1: Case study analysis
Length 1500 words
Task: Case Study - Tracey, an 18 year old expectant mothe
In 1500 words (+/-10%) you are required to write up an analysis of a case study using a multi-dimensional assessment framework. The case study is Tracey, an 18 year old expectant mother and former child in care of the state. Your reference list is not included in the word limit. Please attach/include any completed assessment tools and these do not count as part of the word limit.
What understandings of lifespan development might guide you in developing an understanding of Tracey and her cu
ents needs? How might you blend an understanding of theory into practice?
Explore the topic in the following way:
Your multidimensional assessment should demonstrate an understanding of Tracey's experience from a bio-psycho-social within a
oader ecological, person-in-environment framework.
It should consider the ‘tasks’ and roles typically associated with Tracey's bio-psycho-social adjustment to her cu
ent life ‘stage’, the role of the family, community, institutions, chronological time and history and the inter-relatedness of these factors where these are relevant.
It should also demonstrate an understanding of concepts such as risk, resilience, adversity, adaptation or adjustment, loss and change where relevant to Tracey's life history.
Identify how knowledge about the relevant 'stages' of Tracey's life course might inform your practice.
What ethical issues relevant to working with Tracey might apply? (Tip: understanding the Australian Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics is necessary here).
Students are expected to explore the topic in depth, researching the literature available on the topic (including this unit's set and recommended texts) and applying some critical analysis of the issues noted.
The assessment criteria place an emphasis upon your demonstrated critical analysis.
