Instructions
Narrative therapy is based on the assumption that we create personal stories—or narratives—using the discourses available to us in our social world. These stories often reflect and intertwine with the cultural meanings that we give to various life events. In this assignment, you will be examining the meanings underlying individuals’ narratives and how narrative therapy’s theoretical ideas and methodological techniques can be useful for therapists working with special populations—particularly women who identify as substance-using offenders with histories of multiple criminal convictions.
You will begin by reading the peer-reviewed academic journal article, “Narrative Identity Development and Desistance From Illegal Behavior Among Substance-Using Female Offenders: Implications for Narrative Therapy and Creating OpportunityLinks to an external site.” (located in FSCJ’s Learning Commons Library). You will then summarize the main findings of this research article in two pages and reflect on what you read in two pages. Your paper will be a total of four pages, double-spaced. Be sure to apply some of the related concepts that you have learned about in the text, describing how the journal article connects to the course and any other relevant topics.
****In addition to highlighting key terms and concepts, you will point out the methodological and theoretical strengths and weaknesses that you can identify in the research article using terms and ideas from your textbook and the journal article. You will also want to briefly identify and assess other possible interventions that could be implemented, besides narrative therapy, for issues associated with crime, substance abuse, or deviance. To promote critical thinking, you will create one discussion question. Include this question at the end of page four in your reflection paper. This discussion question can be general, for example, a basic question about a topic in the article that stood out to you. Alternatively, you can ask a question that connects the article’s topic to current events or something else you have read about in this course or another human services-related course.

based on notions of inequality and social justice who would it be?

possible to do away with poverty as a social problem? Why/why not

Critical Evaluation of Two Research Articles (15%). Select two peer-reviewed social work (or social work-related) journal research articles in an area of your interest that is related to an oppressed group (poverty; gender; racial/ethnicity; sexuality; disabilities; etc.). One article must be a quantitative-based article and one must be a qualitative-based article. Ideally, these two articles will inform your group research project. Use a synthesis matrix when reading through your articles (examples are on Blackboard – Week 3). Write a critical report assessing methods, outcomes, and applicability to social work practice (see Appendix A for grading rubric). Due September 29th (week 5), 4-6 pages plus references and your completed synthesis matrix.

You don’t have to specifically address all of them.

Answer these questions,
Consider the following questions. You don’t have to specifically address all of them. They are to prompt your thinking about what our society’s “ideal” family looks like. Remember that an “ideal” (what we believe should be) may not be the same as what really is.
Describe the culturally dominant “ideal family.” Note that I’m asking you to think about what is viewed as an “ideal family” by society, not your own personal ideals, which may be different:
What does this family look like? How many kids? How many adults?
What do the adults do (Inside the house? Outside the house? In social spaces outside the home?)
What do they wear? How would we describe their appearance?
Where do they live? What does their house look like?
What do they do on weekends? Do they go to church or synagogue or a mosque?
What do they do in the summer? in the evenings? What does a typical day look like?
What do they do with their money? with leisure time?
What do they want for their children? Is it the same for girl children and boy children?
What do they talk about? What don’t they talk about?
Then answer (ONE) of these
How does social class affect the parenting styles of the families discussed in Lareau’s study? How do families serve to maintain social class distinctions through their parenting? (Lareau)
How do economic inequalities in our society place additional burdens on working-class and poor families? What are some examples from Rubin’s reading?
How do some of the solutions developed by working-class and poor families to deal with economic difficulties (from Rubin’s reading) reinforce traditional gender roles? How do they help challenge these roles?
Based on your reading of Marriage and Family: LGBT Individuals and Same-Sex Couples, how might same-sex marriages challenge traditional notions of family in the United States? How might recognizing these families lead to greater equality for people of all sexual orientations?

To prepare

While they may be more broadly used to analyze programs, logic models can also be applied in practice, when considering clients’ presenting problems and potential interventions. If you think back to your work earlier in the course with Tiffani, Jake, or Paula, how did you go about determining the intervention based on the problems and needs? Did you see a logical connection in your mind between those elements?
Logic modeling can help to make these connections explicitly clear. For example, perhaps you identify one problem as distrust between parent and adolescent. You observe that the need is a greater sense of trust, and that the underlying causes are history of abusive situations enabled by the parent, history of adolescent lying, and no model of healthy, trust-based parent-adolescent relationship. The intervention, then, might be family therapy to work through the history that has affected trust in the relationship. It might also include parenting classes on repairing a parent-teen relationship. The threads that weave through all of these elements are trust and relationship.
In this Discussion, you create a practice-level logic model of your own, based on the problems and needs that you identified last week.
To Prepare
Review the Learning Resources on the logic model, including the Logic Model Table document.
Consider the problems and needs that you identified last week and how those needs might be met by evidence-based interventions applied with clients.
By Day 3
Post a completed logic model (in table format) for a practitioner-level intervention based on the problems and needs that you identified last week. Be sure to link the areas across the table.
In the table, describe the types of problems, the client needs, the underlying causes of problems and unmet needs. Then describe interventions that would lead to a change in the presenting conditions. Identify the short- and long-term outcomes that you think would represent an improved condition.
Follow the table format with 1 to 2 paragraphs that elaborate on your practice-level model outline and cite resources that inform your views.
