unit 7

Your goal for the assignment is to develop a case study about an adolescent client who has been diagnosed with conduct disorder and has a history of involvement with the juvenile justice system (i.e., has broken the law by stealing a car, etc.). In the case study, you will examine different aspects of socioemotional development that contribute to adolescents’ problems.

You will give your adolescent a name and write the case study as if you are presenting it to a group of coworkers to get some ideas of how to proceed with the case. You will assume that some of the information in the case study was gathered from meetings that you have had with your adolescent client, as well as their parents or guardians. At the end of the case study, you need to list aspects of the case that you want your coworkers to help you with and/or questions about your client that you want input on. Use the Unit 7 Assignment Template and information from Chapters 10–13 to help you write your case study.
