Introduction For social workers, it can be difficult task when counseling children and adolescents. Children and adolescents are going through their developmental stages. Adolescents are experiencing their hormonal stages, and they are usually reluctant when talking to their parents, caregivers, or a counselor about what they are going through and how they are feeling. During the adolescent stages, it is difficult for children and adolescents to express how they are feeling because they do not understand their feelings or fully comprehend what they are going through. Some parents and caregivers have challenges with understanding their children and adolescents. Parents and caregivers may seek counseling or therapeutic help for assistance. A family systems perspective assumes individual family members have an ongoing and mutual impact on one another (Paley, Lester, & Mogil, 2013). The Harris Family The Harris family consists of Patrick Harris (father), Alice Harris (mother), Sarah Harris (female child), and Rick Harris (male adolescent). At this time, Patrick is in the Marine Corps and is on deployment for the third time (Laureate Education, 2014g). Alice sought counseling for herself and her two children due to Sarah’s anxiety and sadness, and Rick’s irritability and anger outbursts (Laureate, 2014g). In addition, Alice is experiencing intermittent anxiety and sadness, her ability to cope, and is seeking assistance on disciplining her children (Laureate Education, 2014g). As a military family, they are experiencing a lot of fears, emotions, and anxiety, and the Harris family is seeking help on how to deal with those emotions to decrease family tensions.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
