Choose a family challenge (substance abuse/addiction; HIV/AIDS; poverty; incarceration; divorce; domestic violence; mental illness; gay and lesbian unions; any other family challenge we see in the families we work with). Describe the way in which the Family Life Cycle is impacted by the challenge you have chosen. (A guide for the Family Life Cycle will be provided to you). Discuss the developmental tasks and issues faced by families in each stage of development and how that particular challenge impedes the familys ability to successfully accomplish these tasks. Pick a specific stage and discuss the treatment best suited for that situation and stage of family life, including a discussion of the goals, objectives and techniques to be used.
