Question description

This week you will evaluate a hypothetical client scenario to complete a social history. There are two parts of this project. Complete the Social History Form found in DocSharing as the first part. Then, write a reflective analysis of the client’s needs including explanation of how referral success relates to relapse potential. This analysis should be at least 1200 words not including the social history. The analysis portion of the project should conform to APA format.

This essay should include a copy of the completed social history and a reflective analysis of at least 1200 words not including the title and reference page. Please format according to the most current edition of the APA manual. You must demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard American English. Note: Standard American English is the common language of educated professionals and is understood by people across different geographical regions, educational backgrounds, and ethnic and racial associations.

Client Scenario: Marek

Marek is a 22-year-old male, Caucasian non-Hispanic male who is in residential treatment in your agency for a polysubstance use disorder. He began using alcohol when he was in high school and then experimented with ecstasy and marijuana. Once he graduated, he went to college and quickly dropped out after his first semester. He was arrested for underage drinking and possession of cocaine. His drug screen at admittance to the program was positive for cocaine and marijuana. He has never been diagnosed with a mental health disorder or serious medical condition. However, he has not seen a medical doctor in years. When examined by the agency’s doctors, he was found to be in good physical health despite being somewhat underweight.

Click the Audio icon below to listen to the recording of his intake session. A transcript of the audio is available in the Script icon. Fill in the social history while you listen. Make a list of the ethical concerns that a case management professional would face while providing services to this client. Explain how you will keep your client’s information confidential. You will add that information in your reflection. Some of the information is already completed on your form; you will need to complete those areas that are blank. Then, write your reflections (about a paragraph apiece) in those areas. Add a copy of your completed form to your reflective analysis and submit as one paper.

Each paper should include:

  • A title page
  • The paper body of the paper
  • Use standard margins: 1" on all sides.
  • Use standard 12-point font size, Times New Roman or Arial.
  • Use standard double-spacing: average of 22 lines per page, and between 20 and 24 lines per page.
  • Use left-aligned text. Do not right-justify.
  • A reference page


Assignment Script 

This is been so hard, you know. In high school, I was the man – you know, the one everyone was afraid of and looked up to at the same time. I loved it. I would walk down the halls and everyone just knew, you know, not to mess with me. But, then, I guess I got bored with school and all that stuff. I started hanging out with a bunch of guys who were trouble – you know, no good. I still did my classwork and went to class most of the time, but, I began to spend more time with them. By the time I graduated high school, I was probably drinking every day and smoking weed on the weekend. I even started doing “E” (you know, ecstasy), but not every weekend. Okay, so then, I went to college. That didn’t last very long though. I got busted at a party for drinking and possession of cocaine. I know that it was wrong, but I was so mad! Like, EVERYONE had something at that party, but they only took a couple of us in. My probation officer and judge are making me come to treatment here, so, you know, here I am. Before I was arrested, I was drinking about a half case of beer a day and smoking crack most days. For me, it was better to get some crack and smoke it till it was gone, but I did some crazy stuff to get it. I even considered prostituting to get money, but then this guy hired me to deliver his drugs for him. It was cool, I was making a lot of money and hardly doing anything for it -- until I got busted! When I was younger, my dad was killed in a car accident. I think he was drunk or something; no one would say. My mom had to work hard to take care of my brother and me. He’s younger than me. I had to start working to help my mom and to save for community college. It was hard on me. I think worst of all, teachers were always calling my mom. They told her that I was difficult in class. When I was young, I used to get up and walk around a lot, like I couldn’t stop moving. Then, when I got older, I just couldn’t concentrate on anything. I think that’s why I like smoking weed so much; it slows down my thinking. But now, the stupid counselor here said that I can’t smoke weed anymore. I don’t know how I’m going to think or do anything, really. I guess the only thing that I do well is math. I was, like, a whiz in school. My math teachers hated me ‘cause I skipped all the time, BUT, I got all of the questions right on their tests. Whatever. Anyway, when I get outta here, I want to go back to college. I think that I can do it if I’m clean.

HYPOTHETICAL CLIENT SCENARIO

Introduction
Drug and substance abuse has seen many young people out of school. It is always
difficult to know who is really responsible for the abrupt change in the behaviors. However, it
should be noted that the behavior change, positive or negative, is determined mostly by the
company i.e. the people one spends most of their time with. It is not possible to have a bad
company and remain good. However, it is normal to have a good company and remain bad. In
this case, Marek, just like any other young person in the United States should be counseled,
advised and be guided so that they live a reformed life.

The ethical concerns

During the counseling session, there are several ethical concerns that must be taken into
consideration. These include; counselor competency, informed consent, confidentiality and the
youth work. When counseling young people, the counselor’s competency plays a very vital role
in the success of the counseling. The counselor should be aware of the age of the young person
being counseled, human development, family structure, culture, mental disorders as well as
transgender. It is observed that these elements must be considered in order to make the client
comfortable. The family structure for Marek, for instance, is known to comprise of the mother,
brother, and Marek, so it would be improper to start talking about how it is important to have a
father. It is important also to have informed consent. In this case, Marek have entered into this
contract through the order by the correctional authority. The contract is, therefore, binding and
the counselor must not mention it as a way of showing that he could not come on his own to
counseling. Another important ethical issue is the confidentiality. Being free with the counselor,
there are illegal issues that the client has shared with the counselor, including being employed to

carry drugs from one part of the state to the other. This is double illegal since it involves child
labor as well as drug trafficking. Confidentiality matters a lot in this case. As a counselor, one is
only allowed to violate the code of ethics dealing with confidentiality when life is at risk
(McDowell & Hostetler, 2011).

Strategies for keeping the client's information confidential
Keeping the client’s information as confidential as possible is vital to successful
counseling as well as trust in your work. It is illegal according to the counselors’ code of ethics
to share the information about the client with the third party without their consent unless it is
critical and is allowed by the counselor’s code of ethics. There are several ways of keeping the
client's information as confident as possible during referral. First, ensure that you hand over the
client’s file to the counselor you are referring them to so that you do not have any copy with you.
This means you will not have to worry about the information anymore since you have transferred
it to the new counselor. This, however, does not give one right of sharing the information with
the third party because they are no longer in charge of the client. Another strategy is to ensure
that the client has informed consent (Lewis, Dana, & Blevins, 2015). The client must...
