Paper  # 2  Integrated Ecoscan and Biopsychosocial-spiritual Assessment

·

· Pages: 10-12

The purpose of this assignment is two-fold. First, to orient and accustom you to thinking about individuals and systems as interdependent and to provide you with a three-dimensional lens for understanding your client- (Clients can be individuals, families, or an individual in a group). In addition, this will be your first introduction to writing a BioPsychoSocialSpiritual (BPSS) Assessment.

 

A BPSS is the most common tool that social workers use to organize information that you have gathered about your client which will lead to your conceptualization (or formulation) of why you think your client is experiencing a particular problem at a particular moment in time. This data and conceptualization are essential for developing an appropriate treatment plan. Most agencies that you work at will require some version of a BPSS; some will be very brief, and others will require a longer, more narrative format. Because we are approaching this as both an academic exercise as well as a clinical intervention, citations are required (minimum of 6).  As social workers, the focus of the information we gather should always be strengths-based and rooted in our understanding of how micro, mezzo, and macro factors influence our clients’ functioning.

 

The paper is divided into sections to help you organize your thinking about how the BPSS and Ecoscan are integrated. Please use headings when writing your assignment.

 

Introduction: (No more than 1 page or 2 paragraphs)

· Agency and Student’s Role

· Identifying Information of the client system

o   Age, sex/gender, race/ethnicity, relationship status, student/employment status, living situation, environmental context (Please note to include any pertinent information you consider relevant to your client system, e.g., religion, etc)

 

Ecoscan (Mezzo and Macro considerations): (2-3 pages)

Begin by walking* or driving* around the neighborhood/community where your client lives and where your agency is located; what do you observe?  (If your client does not live in the community where your agency is located, you may study either community or both communities.) * Please note health safety conditions

Questions to think about as you explore the environment:

· What is the physical appearance, noise level, and density of the neighborhood? 

· How might your client experience themselves in the context of this community? For example, might your client feel a sense of belonging or a sense of being an outsider?

· What is your experience of walking *or driving* around this neighborhood?

Gather current data about the community using websites including government census data, national data for populations, and local/community websites around areas of specific interests along with various informants in the agency or neighborhood.

Answer the following questions that are specifically relevant to your client making sure to appropriately cite the resources that you used to gather the information.

· What are the concerns, if any, relative to environmental justice in this community?

· If a client has a medical need, where is the closest health center/hospital? Is this health center/hospital accessible? Does it offer culturally and linguistically appropriate services?

· If a client has a housing and/or food-related need, what services are available and accessible? How far would a client need to travel to access fresh food?

· Information of the client system: Allice is a 45-year-old female, Caucasian, single and Jewish. She works at a college not far from where she lives. She wipes the dining tables at the college. She lives in a residential group where they are 8 members, four upstairs and four downstairs each person has his or her own room, but they share the dining areas and the rest of the areas. Some clients go to day programs, others go to work and some no longer work due to covid19 situations, and some stay home for some reason. The environmental context is physical, I go there during the day and it’s in a residential area, quiet.

Mezzo and Macro considerations

· The community is surrounded by schools and local organizations/stores that help clients to work in their preferred job, and transportation when they need to go for day programs and work. Support directly these clients experiencing a challenge with mental/emotional and physical health issues to socioeconomic, familial, and cultural hardships.

So, my clients like walking around and sitting outside so this is a good community for them. And being in a community with educated individuals is respectful, welcoming, and understanding.

My experience is like the community because it is peaceful, and you do not expect any violence or unlawful things to happen. Hence making me secure while moving around/ driving.
