You will select an MFT model and a cultural group from which to base your paper. Once you have selected your model and cultural group, do some additional readings about them, paying particular attention to the ideas listed below. You should have no fewer than five references from outside of class. The Journal of Systemic Therapies, the Journal of Family Therapy, the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, and Ethnicity & Family Therapy are excellent resources in addition to books and book chapters on the approaches. The paper should include the following: • A description of the underlying assumptions (major theoretical concepts, theory of problem formation and change, overarching goal, definition of health) of the model applying to the case • A description of the typical structure of therapy for that model (who attends, normal progression, therapist stance/role). • A fictional case description of a family from your culture of choice and their presenting issues. • Theoretical assessment of the case based on your model (in other words, how would the model explain why the problems are happening). • Treatment goals for the case based on model • Plan for intervention strategies including specific considerations in joining with families from that culture • Discussion of the intersection of the client’s culture and the model: What is congruent and what would need to be changed in order to provide culturally sensitive treatment? • Discussion of the intersection of the client’s culture and your cultural identity. What would you want to be thoughtful about in providing treatment to this cultural group? This paper is to be a maximum of 10 double-spaced pages (12-point font). You will be graded as follows: 10 points for your description of the underlying assumptions of the model; 5 points for your description of the typical structure of therapy; 10 points for accurately assessing and providing treatment goals based on the model; 5 points for your intervention and joining strategies; 10 points for your discussion of the intersection of the client’s culture and the model; 5 points for the your discussion of the intersection of the client’s culture and your cultural identity; and 5 points for references, organization, and writing. (Total of 50 points).
