Socw 6111 week 4 discussion 2: developmental stages | SOCW 6111 – Advanced Clinical Social Work Practice I | Walden University

Understanding an adolescent’s behavior can be at times elusive and even frustrating. Due to the multiple aspects of the developmental tasks during these years, it can be at times quite challenging to clearly define the issue(s) at hand. Assessment during this stage will include an evaluation of whether an adolescent’s actions are indicative of unhealthy behavior or merely representative of being an adolescent. A comprehensive assessment that includes an evaluation of the client’s developmental stage is a priority when working with this age group.

For this Discussion, choose the opposite case from Discussion 1 and use Erikson’s developmental theory.

Post an assessment of whether the client – The Bradley Family – is mastering the stage of identity. 

Identify the areas that should be addressed in an intervention based on his or her developmental stage.

Describe how you might address those areas.

Support your posts with specific references to this week’s resources. Be sure to provide full APA citations for your references.
