For this Assignment, you will create a specific hypothetical client scenario on youth and family services. Client problems areas may include, but are not limited to child or adolescent mental health, foster care, adoption, family preservation, family violence, teen pregnancy, substance abuse, and juvenile justice. Apply at least one major theory in your planning, such as the strength-based model or systems theory. Remember the importance of a social support system in helping the client become more self-reliant. As your client becomes more confident, he/she will feel more confident in accepting more responsibility for meeting his or her own needs. (Many clients initially lack these skills or confidence.)

In this Assignment, you will use your knowledge of ethics and culturally sensitive best practices, to identify the main issue presented by the client and develop a 4-page paper, not including the title and reference page. In the paper, you will create an assessment and treatment plan for your client that includes his/her main problems (including any ethical, legal and cultural issues), a prioritization of needs, an intervention plan and potential obstacles, and a plan to evaluate progress and next steps.

Your Assignment should reflect professional writing standards using proper tone and language, clear and complete paragraphs, correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. The paper should be a minimum of four pages, double spaced, and in APA format, with a minimum of 3 scholarly, academic references, cited both within the body of the paper and also at the end under a separate page titled References.
