The text should be error free in the use of English spelling, grammar, structure, syntax, and composition.

Instructions. Select one (1) of the following two (2) case studies (below) to analyze based on the following guidelines.

How. 1. Define & use all the steps of the Double ABC- X model of Stress & Coping (Fig. 1.1, textbook) to show analysis.

2. Make sure to give a definition of concepts and terms and propose your intervention plan as a caseworker (refer to textbook: see examples of interventions and suggestions for practitioners at the end of most chapters).

3. Describe 3 or more dimensions of the stress event (you must include dimension #10 as one of these dimensions) using Table 1.1 Ten Dimensions of Family Stressor Events from the textbook too.

4. Include terms & concepts from textbook when applicable: parenting challenges, impact of ambiguous loss, issues of the couple relationship, & other terms that describe the children’s, couple’s physical & emotional needs.

5. In your plan of action, clearly describe concrete actions that you would employ to conduct an intervention based on the different dimensions of the stressor/crisis and lay out a plan with several steps to show how you would like to help move the family forward from a case worker’s position.

Chose one case study, they are below. Your analysis should be 4-9 pages of double-spaced text in Times New Roman Font, size 12 point (no smaller, no larger). Case Study #1. Military Couple

Use at least 3 concepts and terms from these chapters: Chapter 1, 4, 7, 8, 13, 18[4th ed.].

Bob & Gloria are married and are both in the Military. They have both been deployed to separate areas (Iraq and Afghanistan) over the last 3 years. Their Family Care Plan meets military requirements because they have left their 2 children, a son now 12 and a daughter now 8 with Gloria’s aging parents. Gloria’s mother is a long-term stay at home wife and her husband is still in the workforce but near retirement. The children have seen their parents off & on for brief periods between their deployments the past 3 years. They have both been acting out at home and at school, in spite of the fact that they are both usually easy going, polite children.

Bob and Gloria are currently having relationship problems, even talking of divorce via their latest Skype and telephone sessions. There has been recent bickering between them & Gloria’s parents due to not knowing who should set the rules while they are gone & due to not knowing what the Grandparents should do to cope with the children’s problems.

Bob and Gloria have both shown symptoms of PTSD, have both seemed depressed, and emotionally absent from their children and parents when they come home. This is because they are often facing re-integration challenges that military families face when parents are gone for prolonged periods of time to combat zones. They are also faced with the stress of trying to re-take their roles as parents while dealing with the challenges of their children’s emotional outbursts at home and school which do not subside when they return from the field.
