For this assignment, you will be reading a case scenario in your text and responding to questions related to the impact of the environment on behavior and choices, the impact of the client-human services professional relationship, and how identifying potential ethical issues and the National Organization for Human Services (NOHS) Ethical Standards can help guide you in working with clients.
Begin by reading the case study Applying the Framework: A Depressed Adolescent in Chapter 7 of your text (pages 344-345) about Susie. Then, go to the NOHS website and review the Ethical Standards for Human Service Professionals.
. Use the Unit 6 Assignment Template (attached) to reflect on the situations Susie finds herself in, her environment, and the possible ethical considerations in the case that the human service professional may need to consider as part of an ethical approach to working with the client and her family. Review Exhibit 7.18: Developmental assets for youth (found on page 333 in your text) as a useful reference for completing this assignment.
Please respond to the following:
Discuss a minimum of three ways that Susies environment has influenced her behavior and decision-making in her adolescence. Be sure to include a citation from the textbook related to the case study.
Considering the case study details and the NOHS Ethical Standards, identify one ethical concern you would need to consider when working with Susie and/or her family and discuss how you would apply it within the client and human service relationship. Make sure to include the specific NOHS Ethical Standard (taken directly from the NOHS site) in your response. Be sure to include proper citations for your selected standard.
Provide the name and contact information for one human service agency a human service professional could refer Susie to help provide assistance and support for her current issues. Identify a minimum of three specific services and/or interventions that this agency could provide to assist Susie and explain why these are helpful to the client.
