PCN 521-0101 Week 2 Assignment 2 - Rodney Family Case Study

Read the
following case study and imagine that you are going to conduct a first
interview with this family.


Study: The Rodney family came to therapy because their son is a rebellious
adolescent that is failing the 10th grade. The father has recently been laid
off from his job as a distribution manager and the mother has had to return to
work for a temporary agency as a receptionist, barely making minimum wage. Two
other siblings are in the family, a 12-year-old daughter that is a model child,
and a 10-year-old brother.


Write a
250-500 word paper that addresses the following:


  1. Discuss how you would build
    alliance with this family.


  1. Develop some hypothesis about
    the family patterns that you believe are maintaining the problem.


  1. Conclude by outlining your
    expectations for each phase of treatment.


While APA
format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing
is expected and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA
documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in
the Student Success Center.
