Phase 1

Critical Thinking Questions

  1. What resources already exist in the environment to help this member of the Sanchez family with the concerns that have been identified? What resources does the person need, that you will need to secure as part of your work together?
  2. What do you think are the individual’s strengths that can be used to address the challenges?
  3. What about other strengths—in the rest of the family and in the community—that might be leveraged to address the concerns?
  4. How will you organize your work with the individual to build a working relationship and identify issues that might be important to work on?
  5. How will you ensure that the client is empowered through this work, and that their priorities lead the change process?
  6. How will the client’s individual, family, and cultural identities inform your work together?
  7. How will moving toward realization of the client’s goals affect others in the Sanchez family system? Where is there conflict about the goals that should be pursued, and how might this conflict affect your social work engagement?
  8. List any barriers that might impede your client's ability to meet the goal that you have chosen to work on together.
