Question Description


Working with teams is an excellent way to help clients receive quality services. Below are three short vignettes of teams that support service delivery. For each vignette, address the following two components:

  1. Describe what you believe is the primary role of the team.
  2. Explain how the client benefits from the team approach.

For each vignette, compose responses of two-three paragraphs. Your final submission must address both questions for all three vignettes and should be between two-three pages. Additionally, ensure you are citing from two to three scholarly sources throughout your paper. Ensure each source is cited properly in APA.

Vignette #1: Five professionals are gathered together to consider cases of four adolescents arrested for first-time possession of cocaine. The judge from juvenile court refers offenders to the case management team for assessment and services instead of incarceration. The professionals include a family specialist from the department of human services, a probation officer, a psychologist, a mental health counselor serving as the case manager, and a school liaison.

Vignette #2: Lakewood Hills, Inc. provides support services for Alzheimer's patients and their families. Each patient and family is assigned a case manager who spearheads the service delivery. Each week the case manager chairs a discussion with other professionals who provide an array of services such as physical care, home health services, respite care, and educational services that foster positive psychological development for patients and caregivers.

Vignette #3: Family members participate in a group cooperative that they have formed themselves. Each family has at least one member with a persistent mental illness. As a result of the families' cooperative, they are able to advocate for their family members. To date, they provide a group day care, organize outings to the mall and movies, dispense medications daily, and coordinate time for caretakers to take days off from care giving. The cooperative hired one case manager, who works two hours a day to advise and support these efforts of the families.

Vignette #1

From the nature of the vignette number 1, it is evident that the primary role of the
professional team is to provide correctional service to the four adolescents who have just been
arrested for first-time possession of cocaine. It is evident that the team is not interested in
incarcerating the clients but instead is looking forward to assessing their behaviors and actions.
Thus, the five professionals have created a collaborative team to enable them to find the cause
and effects of the possession of cocaine so as to find a lasting solution to help the four
adolescents embrace positive behavior change (Bosch & Mansell, 2015). Their roles also include
demonstrating respect and trust to each other's professional background and making the best use
of their professional mix. They are also expected to agree with the clinical structure guiding their
work and always observe the interactive communicat...
