By Day 4 Post an assessment of whether the client is mastering the stage of identity. Identify the areas that should be addressed in an intervention based on his or her developmental stage. Describe how you might address those areas. Brady continues to experience grief from the loss of his mother. Brady has been misbehaving at school and at home. Brady’s father does not understand that Brady’s behaviors are due to the loss. Brady’s father is fearful of his father due to verbal and physical abuse that has been occurring. Brady falls into Erikson’s stage of identity vs role confusion. This stage occurs between age 12 through 18. Teens search for their sense of self or identity and attempt to become more independent. I do not think Brady is mastering this stage due to him continuing to struggle with the death of his mother and struggling to have a healthy relationship with his father. When working with Brady and his father I would start with assessing Brady on a child and adolescent functional assessment scale (CAFAS). This tool is to help determine a youths’ overall level of functioning such as school/work, home, community, behavior towards others, moods/emotions, self-harmful behavior, substance use, and thinking (Holosko, Dulmus & Sowers, 2013).
