1) What learning do you take away from this experience that provides a greater awareness, increased knowledge, and/or better skills for working with the LGBTQ+ identifying population?
2) What issues, topics were most interesting to learn about and why?

4) If you were designing this course, what would you do differently? Be specific.

The purpose of this assignment is to provide an opportunity for you to reflect on your knowledge gained in this course and discuss ways you may implement utilizing affirmative practice skills applied to a given case.
You may incorporate skills from a particular practice approach such as the techniques used in motivational interviewing or stages of change, crisis intervention, cognitive behavioral therapy, etc.
When completing this assignment, you are to embody and take on the role of a clinical social worker.
The practice setting can be of your choosing (hospital, private practice, etc).
This reflection / assignment will be centered around the initial meeting between you and your new client. 
Assignment Instructions:
Record a five (5) to seven (7) minute video with you describing the case you selected from those cases listed below and discuss the following:
The presenting issues in the case.
How would you address the issues presented and why? (I.e., give rationale that demonstrates your knowledge gained in this course as well as other knowledge gained from other courses.)
What resources you might recommend/refer the client to and the reason(s) why.
What additional knowledge and/or skills you believe you need that would help you be most effective in the case.
Once you have recorded and posted your reflection, review at least one (1) other classmate’s video and provide constructive feedback. You may respond to your classmate in written form or by uploading a video response.
Client 1:
The client is a 32-year-old teacher who was referred to you by her OB-GYN. The client’s partner called the doctor and reported the client had not gotten out of bed since her last appointment the prior week. At her last appointment with the OB-GYN, the client was told she “would not be able to have children”.
You spoke with the client briefly when she called to make her appointment with you. She shared she is unable to understand what is happening. She said she always believed that if she worked hard and had love in her heart and a strong faith in God, her life would be protected and blessed, especially blessed with children. She feels betrayed by God, her faith.
Where would you begin with this client?
Client 2:
You have been counseling people arriving from Puerto Rico. The families you have been working with lost everything when Hurricane Maria hit including home, livelihood, and oftentimes, family members. Many of those who arrive come with only the clothes on their backs. Once they arrive in Orlando, they are given food vouchers and provided with temporary housing.
You got a call from your supervisor about a new client family (two moms and two small children) who recently arrived in Orlando from Puerto Rico and have requested to speak with a counselor. The family lost everything in the hurricane and they have been living in a nearby hotel.

Client 3:
The client is 39-years-old, male identifying. PGP: they/them. They work as an operating room technician at a local hospital where they have been employed for 7 years. They have always been a law and order kind of person and a supporter of the police until recently. They have recently been having nightmares and difficulty concentrating during their drive to and from work. During the last 2 months, they have been stopped 3 times by the local police even though they were not speeding or committing any other traffic offense. Each time they were let go after the officer asked about their car (a 2016 Audi convertible), ran their tag, asked about where they work, etc. During the last stop, the officer pinned the client to their car and threatened to cuff them. Since this last stop (last week) the client has been having nightmares, difficulty concentrating.
Client 4
The client is a 22-year-old single mother. The client has been in recovery for 2 years. The client is seeking counseling at this time for assistance in developing “good boundaries”. The client reports she keeps getting into the same kind of relationship with the same kind of woman – one who uses her and takes advantage. She would like to learn to say no and stick with it and to understand how to be a better parent to her 8-month-old son.
Client 5
The client is 65-years-old, female identifying. Her partner of 36 years died three weeks ago after a long-term illness. The client has been working with a hospice counselor but reports “it ain’t clickin” and is seeking a counselor who will “just be normal” with her. She reports she is feeling “every emotion there is” and is looking for assistance and support through this process.
Client 6
The client is a 21-year-old student who was referred to you for assessment by the University Counseling Service. The client was sexually assaulted 6 months ago and since then has been experiencing nightmares, trouble sleeping, and trouble staying motivated.
Client 7
You are a counselor in a local high school. You are meeting with a student who you know very little about. It is reported that this student has had a couple of small “heated discussions/arguments” but generally has never been in trouble in the past. Earlier today the student got into a fight in the middle of the lunchroom with another student. The guidance counselor asked you to meet with this student because the behavior was very much out of character. The guidance counselor shares with you that this student is “different” and sometimes gets “made fun of” for dressing “like a boy”.

Participatory learning and action (PLA) tools are used to engage communities in

Participatory learning and action (PLA) tools are used to engage communities in a process of shared decision-making around their strengths and assets. Action steps are often identified by the group to make social, economic, or environmental changes in their community. Select and practice one of the following participatory learning and action tools: -Community asset map – Holistic worldview analysis -Appreciative – inquiry interview -Problem tree analysis (also called diagramming) and Photovoice
Identify an individual or group of individuals with whom you are currently working as part of your job, service, volunteerism, or family. Review the selected tool and become familiar with the process and purpose of the tool prior to facilitating it with your selected individual or group. Below are some guidelines 
What tool did you select and why did you select it instead of the other options?
What cultural insight did you learn based on the individual or group you selected? Include a brief description of the individual or group you engaged for this
assignment.
What challenges did you identify in facilitating the tool?
Discuss how the participants responded to the tool regarding their participation and shared decision-making. Consider how PLA tools are focused on building the
capacity of people versus projects or programs.
A Health in All Policies approach, which include economic and environmental factors, is important in addressing the interconnectedness of health factors to support holistic transformation. Discuss how this community engagement approach through such a tool is useful for assessing a Health in All Policies approach. In addition, consider how this approach is effective in reducing health disparities by addressing economic and environmental issues through community mobilization and assets. Review the website and introductory report on “Health in All Policies,” by the American Public Health Association (APHA), and “What You Need to Know About Health in All Policies,” by the World Health Organization (WHO), located in the topic Resources for additional insight.
