Assignment Brief and Guidance

Scenario

You are part of a student group on a social and community programme who have recently embarked on their placement journey. You have been offered an opportunity to shadow an experienced caseworker for Oldham City Council. The first case you are involved in contains the following facts;

Mary is a 30-year-old who has recently been given a power of attorney to look after her younger siblings aged 4, 11 and 15 years. This is following a death in the family and a breakdown that has resulted in Jane, their mother being detained under the Mental Health Act 2005. Mary feels let down by the local care team who have not supported her mother through the grief process of losing their 72-year-old maternal grandmother. 

Using the case study above the caseworker has assigned you to produce an informative report that will be shared amongst all the trainees. The report will contain the following;

  • Evaluation and reflection of why it is important within social or community work practice to understand human development and the relevant theories. Using a specific age as an example, the report will describe and offer a conclusion on biological, environment and theories of human development about supporting others.
  • The report will offer a critical discussion using the case study to offer an analysis of the attachment theory. The importance of those working within social and community work to understand how the physical and neurological factors influence behaviour in adolescents will be highlighted. Furthermore, the report will offer a reasoned judgement on prenatal factors on human development and a range of life events that affect development through childhood and adolescence.
  • Using the case study as reference the report will offer an account that addresses a range of ideas and arguments on the relevance of theories related to development in late adulthood to supporting older adults in social or community work. A description of the impact of different life events on development through adulthood and a review of the physical, psychological and social changes associated with the ageing process.
  •  An evaluation of how the application of theory related to coping with loss and grief can enhance the support provided through significant life events for different adults accessing social or community care services. The report will go onto assessing the role of the social or community worker in supporting individuals through significant life events and provide specific examples of a range of services in Oldham that can support individuals experiencing different life events. Furthermore, the report will investigate the support offered by those who work in social or community practice.
