In regard to the ACES Health Risk Survey that was posted this week, think about the population/s that interest you in your field placement ( if you do not yet have one, please just speak about a population that you want to work with in the future). Refer to the ACES Pyramid and the ACES top 10 health risks in the article and discuss how your population could be at risk in developing one of these health problems. Please explain your answer from a bio-psycho-social perspective.
For Example: I am interested in working with children who live on migrant farm camps. I am concerned that they will have psychological problems due to a lack of family time and will experience breathing/health problems that could shorten their life span due to harmful pesticides used in the fields (This is a brief answer).
2. Look at the DVSTAT assessment re: risk factors for interpersonal/domestic violence. Then look at the handout about the signs of verbal/emotional abuse. Choose a question on the DVSTAT and think about the dynamics about verbal/emotional abuse on the handout posted. How could you expand on that question to help the client understand/feel more comfortable to answer the question.
For example: If I chose the question on the survey about if a partner is controlling, I may phrase it as.. “Are there times your partner has told you what to do and you felt uncomfortable because you wanted to do something else?” If I used the word “controlling” without an example, the social worker and client may have a very different definition of controlling-or may feel intimidated to answer.
3. If you have observed a client meeting/session, can you share with us an example from each stage of the SOAP model-as if yo were writing a progress note? I understand many of you have not done that yet and cannot respond to this yet, but I will keep asking for examples throughout the semester :).
