family case study fcs 2

Write an essay by following instruction:

SECTION 1: BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON THE FAMILY (APPROX. 2 PAGES; 5 POINTS)

This is an introduction of your family—please feel free to include any information necessary or feel comfortable sharing that you believe is important for me to know about in order to fully understand your family system.

NOTE: if you have a family of your own that you have created with your partner and have children, I advise you to do your family of procreation and not family of origin.

Briefly describe the following characteristics of your current family:

1. Composition of the family: marital status, ages, children, and sibling order (including yourself)—who’s in your immediate family that you live with or are dependent upon.
2. Occupation of parents (if you still live with them) or if you are independent then your occupation, educational achievement of family members, ethnicity, religious/faith background, and family social class.
3. Description of community/neighborhood in which your family lives—what was/is your neighborhood like (i.e. friendly, disconnected, diverse, family-centered, ect.)
4. Level of interaction and connection with extended family.

SECTION 2: BRIEF COMMENTARY AND ILLUSTRATIONS OF CHALLENGES AND STRENGTHS OF YOUR FAMILY SYSTEM (APPROX. 3-4 PAGES; 18 POINTS)

*First, make sure you have read chapters 2 (regarding Family Systems Theory) and 11 (cohesion and communication).

Then, rate your family on the three dimensions of family cohesion, family flexibility, and family communication based on the scale and rating forms (See Tables 1 and 2 below).

Upon completion of rating your family (provided above), you will write up the results of your family assessment on the Couple and Family Map Rating Form (see Table 2), which will be what you address in your “case study.” This means rating your family on each of the concepts and then making a global rating (average rating) related to the three major dimensions using the rating scales provided (see rating form and scale in Tables 1 and 2). Please use the Utilizing the Couple and Family Map for how to calculate all ratings.

Begin, by looking over the Scales to get an understanding of what each dimension (e.g., cohesion) looks like and then you will use that understanding to fill out the rating form. Therefore, when you fill out the Couple and Family Rating Form to get your ratings for each dimension of cohesion, flexibility, and communication, you will take your cohesion global/average rating and flexibility global/average rating to find out where your family fell on the Couple and Family Map (See Table 3). Basically, tell me what system your family fell into based on your family’s global scores of cohesion and flexibility in addition to what you scored overall in cohesion, flexibility, and communication (e.g. “After mapping my family on the Couple and Family Map, I found that my family is Structurally Connected with a global rating of a 3 in cohesion, a 4 in flexibility, and a 3.5 in communication…”).

Once you have identified your current type of family system (e.g. structurally connected or rigidly enmeshed), you will then discuss in your case study the perceived strengths and challenges for each dimension with this type of family system based off how you rated your family—what areas did you score high versus areas you scored lower in; where does your family thrive but where can they improve. This section is designed for you to look at each dimension of the Couple and Family Map (i.e., cohesion, communication, and flexibility) and to pick at least 2 concepts under each—one strength and one challenge (for example, under cohesion: you may choose loyalty as a strength and shared activities as a challenge) and discuss it by providing examples and illustrations of what that concept looks like in your family and why you scored it the way you did.

Do NOT be general or abstract in explanations and descriptions such as: “My family is very loyal so it is a strength for us and we scored an 8 on it.” But in what ways are you loyal and how did you come to give your family such a high score? What examples can you provide to demonstrate loyalty to the family among the members? Think of it this way: after you score your family in cohesion—ask yourself, “What is a strength for us in this area and what is a challenge/growth area or something we could work on?” You will need to explain why by choosing from the various dimensions. For example again, you may choose “activities” as a strength; thus you will need to explain how by illustrating and describing—“We have high cohesion due to our activities. We enjoy doing things together such as: we have a game night every Tuesday and every weekend we try to get together because we enjoy being in each other’s presence and doing activities together…it is a strength for us.” In short, you are to explain through examples why you scored your family a certain number for the areas of Cohesion, Flexibility, and Communication and talk about the strengths and challenges you believe your family has in each dimension.

CONCLUDING REFLECTION (2 POINTS):

Finally, you are to include at the end of your analysis study a reflection of the process. Some examples of what you could discuss though you are NOT limited to these considerations: Were you surprised at the results? Did you find it difficult or easy to rate your family? Which dimensions did you feel were the most challenging and why? What do you think of where your family fell on the Map? After assessing your family, what would you recommend that your family could do to become a stronger and healthier system? What do you like best about your family?

evidence based project part 3 advanced levels of clinical inquiry and systematic reviews

Your quest to purchase a new car begins with an identification of the factors important to you. As you conduct a search of cars that rate high on those factors, you collect evidence and try to understand the extent of that evidence. A report that suggests a certain make and model of automobile has high mileage is encouraging. But who produced that report? How valid is it? How was the data collected, and what was the sample size?

In this Assignment, you will delve deeper into clinical inquiry by closely examining your PICO(T) question. You also begin to analyze the evidence you have collected.

To Prepare:

  • Review the Resources and identify a clinical issue of interest that can form the basis of a clinical inquiry.
  • Develop a PICO(T) question to address the clinical issue of interest for the Assignment.
  • Use the key words from the PICO(T) question you developed and search at least four different databases in the Walden Library. Identify at least four relevant systematic reviews or other filtered high-level evidence, which includes meta-analyses, critically-appraised topics (evidence syntheses), critically-appraised individual articles (article synopses). The evidence will not necessarily address all the elements of your PICO(T) question, so select the most important concepts to search and find the best evidence available.
  • Reflect on the process of creating a PICO(T) question and searching for peer-reviewed research.

The Assignment (Evidence-Based Project)

Part 3: Advanced Levels of Clinical Inquiry and Systematic Reviews

Create a 6- to 7-slide PowerPoint presentation in which you do the following:

  • Identify and briefly describe your chosen clinical issue of interest.
  • Describe how you developed a PICO(T) question focused on your chosen clinical issue of interest.
  • Identify the four research databases that you used to conduct your search for the peer-reviewed articles you selected.
  • Provide APA citations of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected.
  • Describe the levels of evidence in each of the four peer-reviewed articles you selected, including an explanation of the strengths of using systematic reviews for clinical research. Be specific and provide examples.

Technology and modernity have created new forms of appetites that demand attention, such as social media and social networking. Many have become obsessed or enamored with these new forms of ‘communication’, and this may lead to either helpful or detrimental practices and views. Analyze the way technology and modernity have influenced the way people communicate and how this may affect the mental health (positively or negatively). Support should come general analysis from your observations and from “Online Lives, Offline Consequences: Professionalism, Information Ethics, and Professional Students” (485) and “Watch That Tweet!
