Family therapy with youth and their families : a family therapy internship with the Youth Community Counseling Team
MetadataShow full item record
This report provides an overview of the Youth Community Counselling Teams integrated therapeutic approach of structural solution-focused family therapy, the values of the agency and how values are implemented. Case examples are provided to display my implementation of family therapy in direct social work practice within the agency. The focus for social workers in the Youth Community Counselling Team is to stay on top of their case load, which appears to limit their ability to focus on the social work value of pursuit of justice. Finally, this report describes some present service barriers to potential clients and future barriers considering the changing face of Saskatoon’s population with increasing Aboriginal and Immigration populations. This report will be of value for social workers that are considering a family therapy internship at Child and Youth Services, Mental Health and Addiction Services, Saskatoon Health Region.
