Working with Multi-Problem Families
Chapter 19 of the text reviewed multi-problem families using a multisystemic model. It is important for human services professionals to have an understanding of the role family environments play in determining whether or not multiple problems arise within a family system. Please use your readings and research peer-reviewed journal articles in the Purdue Global Library to support your post.
Please respond to the following:
- Chapter 19 discussed different risk factors related to youth problem behavior at different parts of the social structure (Table 19.1). Choose two of these risk factors and provide a summary of each.
- Using the two risk factors identified above, create a strengths-based intervention or strategy that could be implemented to increase resilience. Provide a brief summary and explanation of each intervention or strategy.
- Consider the risk factors you identified above in terms of public policy. Identify one policy recommendation you would make to address these risk factors. Explain your reasoning.
