In this Assignment, you will use your knowledge of ethics and best practices to identify the main issue presented by the client and develop a 4-page paper. In the paper, you will create an assessment and treatment plan for your client that includes his/her main problems (including any ethical issues), a prioritization of needs, an intervention plan and potential obstacles, and a plan to evaluate progress and next steps.
Choose the path of your career interest. (Child and Family Welfare Scenario)
Use the strength-based model in your planning. Remember the importance of a social support system in helping the client become more self-reliant. As your client becomes more confident, he/she will feel more confident in accepting more responsibility for filling his or her own needs. (Many clients initially lack these skills or confidence.)
Your Assignment should reflect professional writing standards using proper tone and language. The writing and writing style should be correct, accurate, and reflect knowledge of human service theories. The paper should be a minimum of four pages, double spaced, and in APA format.

Path 1: Child and Family Welfare Scenario
For this assignment, create a child client who has lived in foster care for most of his/her life. The client was recently adopted and has struggled to adjust to the new family. Recently, an experienced foster family adopted him/her, and the client seems to be having adjustment problems. My client’s name is Joey. His parent lost custody of him because they were both drug addicts, in and out of prison. Joey was abused but one of his parents dealers at the age of 5. His horrible past has contributed to his adjustment problems. He also has difficulty trusting people.
