Theoretical Case Analysis

Compare and contrast two practice theories, through application to one case example. **Choose ONE case study to use for the paper. They are located at the bottom of this word document**
Present a one-page detailed description of the facts of the case you plan to analyze as the first page of your paper. **Do NOT copy and paste the case study you choose. Describe it in your own words.**
Theories must be chosen from those presented in class and course readings (choose 2). List of theories to choose from: – General System Theory – Ecosystem Theory – Psychodynamic Theory – Critical Race Theory – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) – Resilience Theory – Trauma Informed – Solution Based Intervention – Crisis Intervention – Task Centered Model of Intervention
*if you need more information on theories, I will send you the powerpoint slides.*
Organization of the paper: 1. Apply first theory to case assessment. According to the theory, how are thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and interaction patterns, identified problems, etc. explained and understood? 2. Apply first theory to recommend intervening strategies. According to the theory, what type of planned intervention strategies might be suggested? 3. Apply second theory to case assessment. According to the theory, how are thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and interaction patterns, identified problems, etc. explained and understood? 4. Apply second theory to recommend intervening strategies. According to the theory, what type of planned intervention strategies might be suggested? 5. Compare and contrast the two theories in their assessment and intervention strategy strengths and limitations. How do the different theories guide/direct the interview (e.g., questions you might ask) and potential areas for intervention?
