Conceptual Analysis Of A Theoretical Construct Assignment

This course has explored various theoretical constructs and their application with various clients. When providing services to clients, a professional social worker uses theory as a guide.

Consider the theories presented in this course. Choose one from the following list that resonates most closely for you: systems, conflict, empowerment, feminist, psychodynamic, development, cognitive-behavioral, or transpersonal. Use the following conceptual framework to prepare a 12–15-page paper to analyze of your chosen theory.

  1. Philosophical/historical roots
  2. Theoretical framework (use work from seminal experts in the development of the theory chosen)
  3. Nature of support for and against theory (empirical, practice wisdom)
  • How do theoretical concepts translate into or guide specific practice goals and practice skills?
  • What social work values are embraced?
  • Target populations
  • Problems
  • Those for whom this model is contraindicated
  • The initial phase (e.g., purpose, areas of study and investigation, use of relationship, client/worker interaction, nature and content of client participation, nature of worker authority and expertise)
  • Assessment (e.g., purpose, limits and range, the process of the assessment phase, client/worker interaction, nature and content of client’s participation, emphasis on strengths vs. weaknesses, nature of worker authority and expertise, a relationship of assessment to theoretical bases, underpinnings, expected outcomes of assessment phase)
  • Treatment (e.g., goals [implicit and explicit], the focus of work, strategies and techniques used [empirical support, practice wisdom])
  • Termination (e.g., how decided, how carried out)
  •    How does this theory inform research methods and topics?
