P‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍LEASE FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTION AND READ ALL THE MODULES AND ANSWER THE QUESTION AND CASE STUDY AND WRITE A GOOD CASE STUDY THANKS Case study Louise is 60 years old and lives alone. Her husband, Tony, died suddenly two years ago from a heart attack. Prior to Tony’s death, Louise had been responsible for the day-to-day maintenance of the family home, doing the books for Tony’s accountancy practice and caring for their only grandchild, 4 year old Max, two afternoons per week. Since Tony’s death, Louise has had to down-size to a single bedroom unit as she was unable to service the home loan repayments. Max now goes to preschool five afternoons per week and Louise has recently been told by her daughter, Sally, that she and Max may be moving interstate in the New Year due to her husband’s job promotion. While Sally has assured Louise that she will be ‘welcome to visit anytime’, Louise does not see eye-to-eye with Sally’s husband and fears that he may make these visits ‘difficult’ for her. Louise’s other child, Barney, lives overseas with his partner, Steven. Louise and Barney have not spoken for ten years as Tony had ‘forbidden’ her from doing so when he first learnt of Barney’s relationship with Steven. While Louise would desperately love to make contact with her son, she has not done so ‘out of respect for Tony’s memory.’ Now that her daughter and grandchild may be moving away too, Louise is feeling ‘torn’ about the current situation with Barney, and has sought counselling in the hope that the counsellor will ‘tell her what she should do.’ Part A (20 marks): Describe the case study presented above from a loss and grief perspective. For example, what kind of losses does it contain? What socio-cultural and familial factors might be influencing Louise’s experience? What is her support network like? How might these factors impact upon her grieving process? Use references to support your reflections. Part B (20 marks): Choose ONE of the approaches to grief counselling referred to in Module 5. How would this counselling approach assist Louise to explore her loss experiences and enable a decision to be made in relation to contacting Barney? Please substantiate your response with examples from the case study. Part C (10 marks): What ethical issues might this case raise for you in particular, if you were supporting Louise? Describe how you would minimise any negative effects that these ethical issues might have upon your relationship with Louise and your capacity to support her. Structure and style Use Times New Roman at font size 12-point. Double-space your assignment to allow room for markers to make comment as per APA referencing style guide. You need to include a title page. This should contain: your name, student number, unit title/number, assessment number/name, due date, unit coordinator, and your actual word count. Please do NOT decorate the page (. graphics, photographs). This page is not included in your word count. Please begin your response to the assessment task on a separate page to the title page. Your assignment must include an introduction and conclusion. The introduction should provide your assessor with a preview of the key areas that will be covered in your paper and the main point/s you will be arguing. The body of the paper must follow the structure you put forward in your introduction. Each area of analysis you have outlined needs to be well supported by the literature (Please make sure you use only reputable sources for this – see Referencing section below). Each area of analysis should speak to strengths and weaknesses of your point to demonstra‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍te critical thinking. The purpose of your conclusion is to bring together the main points you have argued. The conclusion needs to be brief and generally no new information is introduced. For assignments that require a higher degree of self-reflection, the conclusion can also include key personal learning. You must write a clear and well-constructed response, either in essay format or with subheadings as you need them eg, Part 1 or Question 1. Do not include the question in the subheading as this will effect both your word count and Turnitin score (See Submission section below). The use of dot points in assignments are only allowed following APA guidelines. Included in your word count are In-text references and any tables or figures (if requested by the unit coordinator in assignment question). A 10% + or – leeway is provided in relation to the final actual word count. If you exceed the 10% leeway, as per School of Health policy, the marker will discontinue reading. Your work will then be graded on, and be reflective of, the content you have provided within the designated word count. Make sure you clearly understand the difference between “objective” and “subjective” arguments. Academic arguments need to be objective, this means your assignment is based on contemporary, peer-reviewed, sources (published within the past 10 years, unless the work is by a seminal author) and not your own opinion. You must write in a critical manner than responds to the essence of the question, rather than a descriptive manner. Good critical analysis will go beyond identifying what you are being asked to identify. It demonstrates a capacity to analyse the potential impact of what you identify (drawing on literature), it accounts for multiple perspectives and demonstrates a capacity to question your own assumptions. Academic papers are required to be written in 3rd person and reflective papers must be written in first person. Both are academic styles of writing, the key difference between them is that in reflective papers the author is the subject being critically analysed. When you are asked to reflect on your own process, the relevant section will always be in first person and must demonstrate substantiated critical reflection. This means that on such occasions your response should include your own perspective but this perspective must be linked to theory. We strongly encourage you to use the Studiosity service for editing and feedback prior to submitting your work. Referencing You must reference every point you make in your assignment to acknowledge your source. To achieve more than a pass grade it is expected that you will have utilised peer reviewed (journal articles, text books) contemporary references or Government reports in addition to those provided to you in Moodle. Blogs, websites or other unqualified sources of information are not acceptable for academic work. The content of the unit that is provided in Moodle is not in and of itself an appropriate source for referencing. The unit does however provide links and references to sources that are appropriate. If you wish to reference this material, you must go the original source. You can obtain an APA referencing style guide here. You may also find this quick reference guide for the three most common types of sources you will be citing, helpful. Please print this off and keep a copy to refer to while you are researching and writing. Include a correct and complete reference list at the end of your paper – only include the references you have cited in your assignment. Reference list is not included in the word c‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ount.
