the social-ecological model and the Swearer and Hymel

When writing this section, it is really easy to miss key points as you will be reviewing a lot of literature. It is best to organize your paper with subheadings such as:

Individual

In one-two paragraphs talk about protective factors.

In one-two paragraphs talk about risk factors.

Family

In one-two paragraphs talk about protective factors

In one-two paragraphs talk about risk factors

etc.

It is also very easy to forget to cite references. Remember to back up any idea that isn’t your own original idea with references.

Social-Ecological Model

This week you will apply the social-ecological model the problem you have identified to address in your community. Applying this model may be new for some of you. Indeed, for many people who are training to be therapists (e.g., clinical mental health counseling, clinical social work, marriage and family counseling, clinical psychology, etc.), the training often has more of a focus simply on the individual and the other levels according to the social-ecological model are often less heavily emphasized if at all. This systemic view can really help contextualize client and community challenges. The article by Swearer and Hymel (2015) in your course resources this week clearly demonstrates some important elements of the social-ecological model and of taking a systemic view of problems to be addressed. I look forward to reading how the model applies to the target problem in your community.

Continuum of Care

The continuum of care, posted below, is just a reminder to think about making your project and goal statement aligned with “Prevention”.

Also, please consult with me via email if you are questioning whether or not your goal statement falls in the realm of prevention or not.
