CASE STUDY REPORT
report, using the following headings.
SELECTED CASE STUDY: Write a summary of your selected case study to provide a background of the case. This can be written similarly to the case study information provided to you, however, you may need to consider your word count and that an even briefer summary may be optimal.
A) Human Rights
Discuss the elements of the case that relate to human rights. Consider:
Literature on human rights � e.g Universal Declaration of Human Rights
United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child
Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
Are there are any articles listed within these documents that are relevant to your selected case study?
B) Ethical Dimensions
Discuss the elements of the case that relate to ethics. Consider:
Your Code of Ethics � e.g Australian Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics (2010) https://www.aasw.asn.au/document/item/1201
Or Australian Community Welfare Code of Ethics
Are you able to identify an ethical dilemma? If so, can you identify the two conflicting alternatives? Or the conflicting principles � e.g client self-determination versus confidentiality (example)
Does confidentiality need to be considered?
Are there issues around gaining consent to exchange information?
Is there a relevant section in the code that is applicable to your case study?
C) Theoretical Approaches
Consider the theory that you have learnt about in this course as well as other courses (if applicable) � what theoretical approaches could be applied to inform your assessment and intervention?
Chapter 5 of your text book outlines 10 theoretical approaches.
For example �Systems theory addresses the significance of relationships and how identifying inter-connections can assist us to understand how people influence each other (Chenoweth & McAuliffe, 2015). Persons identified within the microsystem can be drawn upon as avenues of support to a client.
