You are a case manager at a local agency in Sacramento and David is your client. He is currently residing in foster care. Your “bio-psycho-social assessment” knowledge is completed by reading the book, A Child Called “It”: One Child’s Courage to Survive by Dave Pelzer, and by working collaboratively with your client.
Create a case plan for David:
Based on your assessment of the client using an Ecological Model approach, what would you address in David’s Individualized Case Plan?
Include specifics regarding the Assessment, Planning, Linking and Monitoring (be specific utilizing names of your local resources/agencies when appropriate). Be sure to balance what you have learned about cultural competence when considering his plan, as well as balancing his (and his family’s) strengths and weaknesses.
In conclusion, what are some of the internal struggles/values conflicts/boundary issues that you experienced with this case? What would you do to manage these thoughts and feelings? How would you manage potential countertransference?
