Preparation

Article Discussion:

Conduct an Internet search for a professional article on an existential or humanistic approach to working with someone who is terminally ill. Study the article and be prepared to discuss your findings with your Learning Team.Each team member should contribute
his/her own article for discussion
.



Article Discussion:

Present your article on working with a person who is dying. Discuss how you feel about the approaches presented in the articles. Consider how you would feel if you were terminally ill and sought help. In what way would you like your human services worker to work with you?

Discuss unconditional positive regard. How does a clinician exhibit this quality? You may wish to add copies of some or all of the articles presented to your personal Resource File.

Listening Skills Role-Play:

Role-play: The team should select two members to conduct a role-play of a situation using person-centered listening skills and emphasizing reflection of feeling. A team member will take the role of the human services worker who is dealing with a person facing death. One student might role-play the participant, one the human services worker. Each week the team will be expected to conduct a role play relevant to that week’s theory. It is recommended that the team rotate those team members who will conduct the role play for each week.

Remember that existential theory emphasizes respecting the client’s beliefs and ability to grow. Do not give advice. Do not persuade. Be with the client and listen.

Submit a Summary Report on the team’s findings and discussion of the selected theory, and related articles, for Week 1.  Include a brief transcript of the role-play. Include the resources the team investigated. This report/transcript should be between 500 and 1000 words long.  All team members who participated in this report/role-play should be listed on the cover sheet. Utilize APA format for the paper and remember to submit your Certificate of Originality with any paper assignment, team or individual, that is submitted.

Team: Here is the family system you will use to create your genogram/family systems graph for Week 5:

PRESENTING SYSTEM:  THE BLAKE FAMILY

Shelley Blake is a 34 year-old, single mother.  She is raising two children with the assistance of her 60 year old mother, Mabel. 
Her two children are Steve, aged 11 years, and Martha, aged 9 years.
Shelley and her mother have a problematic relationship.  Shelley is a recovered methamphetamine addict, who has been clean for two years now.  During her time under the influence, Shelley had essentially abandoned her children, and Mabel took over their care for approximately 3 years.  Mabel deeply resented this and constantly reminds Shelley of her failings as a mother.

Shelley does not know who Steve’s father is, but Martha’s father, Raoul, is also a recovering addict who is attempting to rehabilitate and wants to get more involved with Shelley and the children.  He has begun coming over to the house several times a week.  Mabel is adamantly opposed to this and fears that Raoul will drag Shelley down into drug addiction again. 
Steve has recently become an increasing problem for Shelley.  He is beginning to strongly challenge her authority as the mother, and she describes him as “playing my mother and me off against each other”. Recently, his previously good school attendance and performance has been changing for the worse.  Mabel is concerned that Steve is gravitating to Raoul and may be negatively influenced by him.  Martha seems to be always anxious and clingy with Shelley.  Shelley says that Martha’s constant need for attention and reassurance has been increasing steadily, and has become exhausting.
Shelley indicates that the family never communicates as a unit, but rather has “constant squabbles”.  “We can never agree on anything, she says.” 

BSHS 311 WEEK 5 TEAM ASSIGNMENT SYSTEMS CHART AND ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY SMITH FAMILY


Your faculty member has assigned the team a particular family system to analyze and chart. As a team, chart the system you have been assigned. Use drawing software, showing system dynamics such as dyads and triads, factors contributing to homeostasis or upsetting the balance, closeness and distance of members, and roles such as the clown, the scapegoat, the rescuer, or others. 
Submit your chart with a brief explanation of it. Attach a one-page annotatedbibliography of the top ten of your Learning Team’s articles from the Week Four search and discussion.

Team:  Here is the family system you will use to develop your genogram/family systems graph for Week5:

PRESENTING SYSTEM:  The Smith Family
The Smith family is a “blended family”.  Joe Smith is a 40 year old electrician who has, but won’t admit to, a serious drinking problem.  He has had an erratic work history that has caused serious financial problems for the family during the 5 years of his second marriage.  Doris Smith, is a 28 year old Office Manager for a busy law office. 
Doris has two children from her prior marriage, her son, Bobby, who is 11 years old, and her daughter, Crissy, who is 9 years old.  Joe has three children from his first marriage, Mary who is 15 years old, John who is 12 years old, and Carrie who is 7 years old.  His children spend two weekends a month with their father, Doris, and her children.
Serious communication problems have developed as a result of this situation.  Doris complains that Joe takes little responsibility for dealing with the children, and tends to favor his children over hers.  Joe states that Doris is a “whiner” who overreacts and dramatizes “every little thing”.  Doris is especially upset about Mary’s behavior, who she describes as very defiant and disrespectful, and that weekends when Joe’s children visit are constant battles between Mary and her. 
When asked to describe how the other children respond to this conflict Doris says that John often tries to join in with Mary in defiance of Doris. She describes Carrie as “crying all the time” and being increasingly withdrawn.  When it comes to her own children, Doris states that Bobby “acts like a nut most of the time”.  Asked to clarify this she states that “he tries to help by being funny, but it just makes things worse”.  She states that Crissy, even at her young age, tries to get everyone to stop fighting. 

Doris feels that Mary is the primary problem and that if she was removed from the family situation that everything would be ok.  She has been pushing Joe to refuse to let Mary come to their house anymore, and to see her on his own time.  Typically, Joe has been noncommittal about doing this.
