Discuss your work with an
individual, group, or family, particularly how your work demonstrates thoughtful
cross-cultural practice, illustrating a culturally relevant, and clinically
sound, interpretation and application of practice concepts and skills in your
assessment and interventions. Specifically, start with a condensed description
of the presenting problem and key points in the client’s history, and the scope
and focus of your work. This section should be approximately 2 pages of the
paper, not more. Then, discuss how the work has progressed, through the lenses
of culture, power, and understanding/connection, which will be the remainder
and primary focus of the paper. This discussion should include which of these
factors you have considered most salient in 1.) your assessment of the client,
and 2.) in the therapeutic relationship (even if not addressed
directly/openly), such as class, ethnicity/nationality, race, gender, education
level, etc. This should first include how these factors play a role in the
client’s issues/problem (the impact of larger social issues on the client), and
then additionally what roles they play in the working alliance and therapeutic
dyad (or triad, etc.). The section about the working alliance should include the
relevant aspects of culture, values/beliefs, and social location of both client
AND therapist, and how these aspects of each person come together and operate
covertly and/or overtly in the work, including issues of transference and
countertransference. You must clearly and explicitly state your own social
location factors, and the client’s. You must cite at least 6 readings from the
Reading List, Weeks 11-15, and one outside reading (a peer reviewed
publication, aside from the DSM), totaling at least 7 sources. **If you have no
current or past client material that you can use, you may use either of the
films The Florida Project, Palmer, or Moonlight to hypothesize about the implementation
of treatment with a chosen character at a given point in time. I recommend that
you write about the same client/character as you did for your midterm, as this
should be seen as an expanded discussion of the same case.
