SOWK 530 SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT ASSESSMENT PAPER ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS People are

SOWK 530
SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT ASSESSMENT PAPER ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
People are influenced by their environment. Through environmental exposure, people form
worldviews, thought processes, and ways of interacting with others. For this assignment, you
will need to identify and research local and state databases to identify the needs in your
community environment. This may help you gain an understanding of how your environment
influences you and how the environment could impact your future potential clients. Develop a 4-
6 page paper (not including the title page and references) that includes the information noted
below.
First: Provide a detailed overview of the community demographics including factors such as
population, racial makeup, crime rate, income levels, etc. What are the most important things to
know about your city? Are there any interesting facts? Also discuss why it is important for social
workers to be knowledgeable of their communities.
Second: Evaluate the community where you live in two of the categories listed below. Identify
the strengths (things your area may be doing well to address the issue) and needs (why is it an
issue, what are the stats, what is its impact on the community) associated with both categories.
Data and factual information should be provided to support need. Select two categories from
the list of social issues below:
 Medical care/facilities and services
 Mental health services
 Crime
 Homelessness rate (adults, children, families)
 Substance abuse
 Poverty
 School systems
 Environmental Issues
Third: Discuss where social workers are employed in your community. Consider settings such
as schools, hospitals, prisons, detention facilities, nursing homes, social service agencies,
afterschool programs, Head Start, Veteran’s services, mental health agencies, etc. Name specific
places. For instance, Freedom 424, an anti-trafficking organization in Forest, VA. employs
social workers. Saying an anti-trafficking organization would not be enough information.
At least 3 community/environment or government websites, databases, etc. should be cited, for a
minimum of 3 sources. There is not a maximum number of sources. Please follow the
instructions carefully, use the template provided, and use current APA format.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
Please know I live in Jasper, GA. You can research this town and pick two of the above subjects to look into.

*There is a 20 minute that goes with this assignment however it will be downloaded later. I have been having difficulty loading the video. I am also going to download the book and lecture notes as well.
Your first case assignment is due this Friday. Pay close attention to each question and answer each separately. Your answers can be in narrative format. This is an interestng case of a 9 year old boy, accompanied by his mother to the session. The therapist is a very gifted solution focused therapist. Her clinical aim is not to diagnose Jason, but to find solutions to his stated fears. In the interview we can observe mother and Jason, but father and sister are not present. Listen carefully to how mother and Jason describe father and sister’s relationship to the presenting problem. Take a look at the lecture and power point file where risk and protective factors are discsussed. Relate as many as you can to the case. Level of impairment is a judgement call, ranging from mild, moderate to severe. We look at impairment as impacting social/peer functioning, academic/work functioning, and family functioning. In looking at family dynamics, think about how each member responds to the presenting problem, which are Jason’s fears. Think about what each family member does, or, doesn’t do. This is cricital when working with clients who have mental health conditions. Family dynamics are important in terms of course of illness and relapse. Family systmes may not have actually caused the mental health condition, but they can impact the course.
Watch a video of the case: “Child Interview.” (first 20 minutes)
Answer the following questions regarding the child:
What risk factors are evident in the case?
What protective factors are evident in the case?
What specific symptoms does this child present?
How would you rate the level of impairment in regard to the child (mild, moderate, or, severe)? Give an explanation for your reasoning.
What areas of impairment do you see as most significant for the child?
How do family dynamics impact the primary symptoms?
From a systems perspective, describe how the biological, psychological, and social variables interact in this case.
What cultural considerations would be relevant for this case?

What does research say about this kind of problem area? What measures could be used in therapy?
