This week, you will have two Discussions. The first is the regular Discussion. You will need to read a Case Study as
preparation for discussion. Then, using information learned in Chapter
4, you will identify and apply concepts and skills from the human
services field to the case study.
Next, be sure to respond to the Video Discussion
