Theyare very beautiful, intelligent young ladies with a bright future in front of themif they stay grounded and don’t become distracted with the surrounding chaos.They are running into a lot of confusion due to the fact of them being twoCaucasian males that live in an environment that is not conclusive to thedifference in the roles of parents and understand the life style.If I was the social worker on this particular case I would fist meet with thefamily in their environment because I would like to evaluate what is going onfirst hand and then talk to the family as a unit and then separate. I wouldrecommend family counseling because a social worker must focus both on theindividualized life transitions of the client and the dynamic interaction with thesocial system enveloping them Kirst-Ashman, K. K., & Hull, G. H., Jr. (2012,p.341). This particular family have a lot of dynamic’s to address, and as asocial worker you have to not judge and be sympathetic to the trouble that they
as a family are going against. The children need counseling and a supportgroup for youth that have LGBTQ parents. The parents need to go to a supportgroup that are geared to their current situation so they can be informed onwhat they are up against, and what strategies to take to make this a smoothtransition for them as well as the young ladies. They have to remember thatthe young ladies are attending high school and have a lot of pressures on thembeing female teenagers and not to mention you always have people that have tomake a big deal out of something so the attention is not on them; the socialworker needs to address that with the student counselor.Kirst-Ashman, K.
