project 2 

The final project for this course is the creation of a family/community care plan and self-care plan.As a human services practitioner, you could be in a position where you will be required to address the identified needs of families, communities, or both. In such cases, you will need to assess the use of potential intervention models, develop strategies for addressing needs, and possibly assess the available appropriate resources to assist these families in negotiating the complex system of organizations in their communities. In doing so, you will be exposed to many situations that involve trauma, and thus prepare yourself by composing a self-care plan to ensure a lengthy career.The summative assessment for this course will require you to analyze a case scenario using family and community systems assessment models (i.e., sociograms, culturagrams, ecomaps, genograms, etc.). After analyzing the case, use the data derived to design family and community interventions, being sure to justify the use for all parties involved. Finally, you will be required to create a brief reflection that will examine the potential personal and professional impact that situations such as the one presented in the case scenarios may have on you as a practitioner. In addition, you will briefly identify your emerging self-care plan.The overall objective of this assessment is to allow you to demonstrate your practice competencies and your enduring understanding of how family and community systems operate and change. Predicated on the systems’ foundational principle that when one thing in a system changes, the entire system changes,your completion of this assessment will allow you to craft a plan to create change that benefits the family and community in a dynamic way. Moreover, it will allow you to reflect on and plan how to best maintain your wellness as you embark on your career in human services.The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Two, Three, and Five. The final submission will occur in Module Seven.

HSE 310 Final Project Milestone Guidelines and Rubric
Case Scenario Family Julio (age 33) and Quianna Riverez (age 30) live in Chicago, Illinois with
their five children, ages one, three, four, seven, and 15. Both parents dropped out of high school
when Quianna became pregnant with their oldest child, Rico. Initially they lived with Quianna’s
parents, later getting an apartment in the Englewood area of the city, where they still currently
reside. Right after they moved into their own residence, they were relieved to be on their own, in
part due to the chronic conflict between Julio and Quianna’s parents that continues to this day. A
few weeks after moving to Englewood, they realized that the violence the neighborhood was
known for would make an indelible mark on each of their lives. Julio was shot in the chest when
rival gang members fought for turf in front of the family’s apartment. Although he survived, he
was left with lingering health issues resulting from extensive scar tissue in his lungs. For her
part, Quianna continues to struggle with the emotional impact of Julio’s shooting. Both parents
have seen plenty of violence near their home, yet they feel trapped since there is no money for
daily necessities, much less relocation. Their feelings of helplessness and fear have intensified
since a shoot-out last week left three dead, including a one-year-old infant in a stroller. The
incident played out in front of the entire family as they were getting off a city bus. The family
narrowly missed being hit by gunfire themselves and had to spend several hours on the scene
being interviewed by the police. Julio’s family moved away from Chicago shortly after Rico’s
birth. They have returned to the Miami, Florida area since it allows them to see the extended
family that immigrated to Miami from Cuba.
They are estranged from Julio and Quianna because of the couple’s choice to not marry and their
lack of participation in the Catholic Church. Quianna’s family does continue to live in Chicago.
Although they are accepting of the couple’s decision to not marry, they resent the fact that the
couple does not try to attend family gatherings, and they wish that Quianna had married an
African American man to maintain the family’s ethnic and cultural heritage. Julio has great
trouble being around Quianna’s family because he thinks they are controlling and they always
share unrequested advice that he does not wish to follow. For these reasons and others, the
couple receives no social or financial support from either side of the family. Julio currently
works two part-time jobs; one is at a local diner where he is a cook, and the other is at a factory,
where he works third shift as a maintenance person. Quianna has always stayed home to raise the
children. The couple’s finances are not adequate to pay for the necessities of life such as
groceries, housing, and utilities. In fact, their utilities were shut off at the beginning of April due
to nonpayment. It is becoming increasingly frequent that Julio must walk to and from work due
to the family’s inability to pay the fees for public transportation. A major stressor for the couple
is that Julio’s original language is Spanish and he continues to struggle to communicate in
English. When the couple experiences conflict, Julio often shuts down or leaves the residence
due to his challenges in expressing his thoughts and feelings. All the couple’s children speak
English exclusively and Julio feels that this limits his authority as a father. Quianna reports that
she is tired all the time and that she is left alone to deal with the children on her own. She reports
that she has been particularly fatigued since the birth of her youngest child, Cedric. Adding to her
fatigue is her difficulty in sleeping that she attributes to nightmares related to Julio’s shooting
years ago, which has been compounded by the recent violence the family witnessed. Per her, all
the children are unruly and she reports not having the energy to deal with them anymore.
Quianna holds fond memories of her own childhood when she was intimately connected to and supported by her family. She reminisces about their family gatherings and church-related
activities. She wishes that she could provide a similar childhood for her children. She states that
she is very concerned about Rico, who has had several run-ins with the law because he
repeatedly violates curfew and the police suspect that he is affiliated with a local gang. Rico is
often truant and is at high risk for being held back this year. For his part, Rico sees no value in
completing high school. He thinks that trying to complete high school is futile and imagines that
he will follow in his parents’ footsteps and drop out of school eventually. Community the
Englewood neighborhood of Chicago is located on the city’s south side, approximately seven
miles south of the Loop. While most of its residents are African American, there has been an
influx of diverse groups. At its height, Englewood had nearly 100,000 residents, but in the past
decade or so the population has significantly declined, leaving just over 30,000 residents.
The area is plagued by violence, poverty, and unemployment. Numerous gangs operate in the
neighborhood. Even those who resist the pressure to affiliate with gangs are at an increased risk
of violence. If gang members reside on a block, there exists an assumption among rival gang
members that all others who reside on the block are in some way connected to the gang who
operates in the area. There have been more than 17 murders in the past year in Englewood, along
with countless other shootings, rapes, acts of gang violence, and other types of violence. Despite
the negative conditions that exist in the community, there are many residents who have formally
organized to address the issues that leave the residents at risk. An example of the community
outreach efforts is the online Englewood Portal. On this website, community members can find
helpful organizations including social services, block clubs, and faith-based organizations, as
well as community resources and employment opportunities. Another Chicago-based
organization, Cease Fire Illinois—a Cure Violence organization—has an increasing presence in
Englewood.
Prompt Based on your analysis of the case scenario, develop an effective care plan to address
both the family and the community in need. Furthermore, consider how you, as the practitioner,
would protect yourself from the negative personal impacts of working with victims of traumatic
situations when developing your self-care plan.
Carefully analyze the case scenario above and address the following critical elements:
I. Introduction to Case Scenario Provide a brief overall assessment of the case scenario, ensuring the following questions
are answered:
1. What family and community system factors are driving the negative issues in the
scenario?
2. What strengths are apparent in the family and community that can provide leverage to
overcome the issues?
3. What small groups are present in the community that may help to facilitate change? 4.
What advocacy efforts are being used at the community level? B. Summarize the assessment of interventions, resources, and potential outcomes,
ensuring the following questions are answered:
1. What interventions would you apply to ameliorate the issues represented in the scenario?
2. How might you best address trauma, family roles, and culture? 3. What resources are currently available, or what resources could be created to effectively
scaffold the family and community?
4. What family and community strengths might you leverage to address the identified
issues?
5. Given your plan, what outcomes do you expect?
II. Systemic Analysis of the Family Select one or more systemic family analysis instrument(s) (i.e., sociograms,
culturagrams, ecomaps, genograms, etc.) for determining what is appropriate in the case
scenario. In other words, which assessment instrument(s) would best flesh out the issues
that exist in this scenario? Use the selected instrument(s) and apply it to the case scenario.
1. What information did you derive from the assessment?
2. How will your selected assessment help to frame your approach to working with the
family? B. Design a human services care plan to address the family needs identified in the
systemic family analysis, ensuring that the least intrusive and restrictive interventions are
adopted. Given the results of your assessment(s), what systemic family strategies would
best align with the identified needs and the family’s level of resilience? Why? C. Identify and assess available resources to ameliorate identified family needs. In other
words, what are your recommendations regarding available resources based on the case
scenario? D. Will the resource plan that was designed in your assessment be sufficient to
meet the identified needs? Explain why.
E. Evaluate the potential outcomes that may be derived from the applied interventions
and resources. In other words, how would the applied interventions and resources
alleviate the family needs represented in the case scenario? III. Systemic Analysis of the Community Select one or more systemic community analysis instrument(s) (i.e., sociograms,
culturagrams, ecomaps, genograms, etc.) for determining what is appropriate in the case
scenario. In other words, which assessment instrument(s) would best flesh out the
systemic cultural, social, economic, and educational issues and strengths that exist in this
scenario? Use the selected instrument(s) and apply it to the case.
1. What information did you derive from the assessment?
2. How will your selected assessment help to frame your approach to working within the
community? B. Design a human services care plan to address the community needs identified in the
case scenario. Given the results of your assessment(s), what systemic community
strategies would best align with the identified needs and strengths? Why?
C. Identify and assess available resources to ameliorate identified community needs. In
other words, what are your recommendations regarding available resources based on the
case scenario? D. Evaluate the potential outcomes that may be derived from the applied interventions
and resources. Given the results of your assessment(s), what systemic community
strategies would best align with the identified needs and strengths? IV. Practitioner Reflection What are the case-specific risks to the practitioner’s well-being? In other words, how
could vicarious trauma interrupt your personal or professional functioning? B. Select and
utilize a trauma-informed assessment instrument to assess potential personal and
professional exposure to trauma-laden materials and situations. Design a personal and professional self-care plan to address ongoing exposure to traumaladen material and situations. Take into consideration the specific ethical considerations
you need to be aware of as you work with those who have trauma-laden histories and the
specific trauma informed strategies you could adopt to enhance your own awareness,
balance, and connection. Guidelines for Submission:
Your family/community care plan and self-care plan submission must be 8–10 pages in length
(plus a cover page and references) and must be written in APA format. Use double spacing, 12point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Include at least four references cited in
