By successfully completing this assignment, you demonstrate your proficiency in the following EPAS and practice behaviors:

C4.GP.B Identify ethical, culturally informed, anti-racist, and anti-oppressive strategies that address inherent biases for
use in quantitative and qualitative research methods to advance the purposes of social work.
C6.GP.A Apply knowledge of human behavior and person-in-environment, as well as interprofessional conceptual
frameworks, to engage with clients and constituencies.
C7.GP.A Apply theories of human behavior and person-in-environment, as well as other culturally responsive and
interprofessional conceptual frameworks, when assessing clients and constituencies.
C8.GP.B Incorporate culturally responsive methods to negotiate, mediate, and advocate with and on behalf of clients
and constituencies.
C9.GP.A Select and use culturally responsive methods for evaluation of outcomes.
Prepare
First, review the following Capella multimedia:

Case Study Treatment Plan.
Make notes about the case you selected that you think applicable to this assignment.

Instructions
After you have reviewed the Case Study Treatment Plan multimedia activity, compose a paper (6-8 pages) that includes the following. Visit the Social Work Masters Program (MSW) Library GuideLinks to an external site. for help researching scholarly sources.

Introduce the client.
Describe the client’s demographic information and intersectionality (gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, class, etc.)
Develop a statement of the presenting problem.
Research: Apply key components of a human behavior theory to the assessment, intervention, and evaluation of the chosen case study.
Examples of human behavior theory include psychoanalytic, behavioral, cognitive, feminist, etc.
Explain how the theory is applicable to the chosen case by describing at least one of the theory’s implications related to human behavior and development.
Assess: Assess the client from a developmental perspective and a person-in-environment perspective.
Apply at least one adult development theory to the assessment.
Examples of developmental theories include Peck, Levinson, Kohlberg, Gilligan, Maslow, Erikson.

Systems to consider include family, friends, work, social services, politics, religion, goods and services, and educational systems.
What systems provide the client with support?
What systems may be hindering the client?

Assess the client’s strengths and limitations.
Cite academic resources to support your assessment.
Intervene: Discuss a theory-based intervention plan for this client, including two short-term and two long-term goals.
Apply a human behavior theory to justify the intervention.
Examples of human behavior theory include psychoanalytic, behavioral, cognitive, feminist et cetera.
Use scholarly research to support application of the theory.
Apply ecosystems theory to justify the intervention.
Use scholarly research to support application of the theory.
Discuss how the intervention plan addresses diversity.
Evaluate: Evaluate the strengths and limitations of the chosen human behavior theory.
Evaluate the cultural competence of the human behavior theory you selected for the Week 5 assignment, Theory Identification and Analysis.
Explain why the human behavior theory you selected is more effective than another human behavior theory of your choice.
Engage: Discuss how the chosen human behavior theory is most applicable to social work practice.
Contextualize your discussion within practice that engages with individuals, families, and communities.
Compare and contrast the theory you chose with one other theory to justify your choice.
