Family in crisis
Create a fictitious family in crisis and create a 10-12-slide PowerPoint presentation (not including the title and reference slides), that includes detailed speaker notes and covers the following:
Introduce the family, the family members, and the culture context within which the family identifies.
Introduce a common family life crisis for which they are seeking behavioral health services (for example the birth of a child or the onset of a chronic illness).
Describe communication styles among the family (minimum of two slides).
Discuss family cohesion and flexibility (minimum of two slides).
Explain the lifecycle stage (minimum of two slides).
Highlight each topic in the PowerPoint presentation and develop hypotheses regarding potential areas of concern in the future for the family, including how religion or spirituality may play a role in their adjustment.
