Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Write a 10–12-page paper that applies a Single Study or Systematic Review to the client or client system you identified in the Unit 4 discussion. Use the example of “Case Illustrations for Single Study or Systematic Review” in Chapter 14 of Clinician’s Guide to Research Methods in Family Therapy. In the last discussion I identified a problem for a newly married couple. They have been married for a year but are high school sweethearts. The wife has recently become pregnant and the husband has been having an affair. He has ended it in hopes of keeping his family together. He is not apologetic enough for his wife. The wife now has trust issues and is easily angered. The husband wants things to go back to how they were before his indiscretion.
I chose a Solution Focused Narrative Therapeutic Approach. The next steps would be to begin the process of ensuring the client and the problem are separated to allow the client a better objective view of the situation they are facing. Assess the problem, and then implement the first stages of goal-directed approach to therapy that highlights the importance of searching for solutions rather than focusing on problems (Trepper, Dolan, McCollum, & Nelson, 2006; Proudlock & Wellman, 2011). Different ways I can do this would be to focus on what worked for the clients before the indiscretion. Possibly use a scaling question to allow both sides to discuss deeply where they currently stand. I can then ask a miracle question to hopefully allow the wife to step out of where they are currently. Depending on how the clients react next steps would depend solely on them. The paper attached is the first part to the assignment please complete part 2 based off of part 1
