Discussion 2: Dalia’s Behavior
Argumentative behavior, engagement in physical altercations, and evidence of mood swings can all indicate that an adolescent is experiencing anger and depression. Self-harming can surface in adolescents, too, as they experience difficult emotions.
Working With Children and Adolescents: The Case of Dalia
For this Discussion, read the case study of Dalia and consider what you, as her social worker, would do if you observed self-harm indicators.
- Post a brief explanation of self-harming behaviors that Dalia is exhibiting.
- Describe theoretical approaches and practical skills you would employ in working with Dalia.
- How might familial relationships result in Dalia’s self-harming behavior?
