Structure- the discussion paper must be written in the third person and contain:
an introduction clearly identifying the practice area and focus topic (from the list above) you intend to discuss, how this will relate to the module case study and demonstrating your understanding of what is meant by whole family approaches.
a main body outlining your practice area and focus topic, using the module case study to critique the strengths and limitations of current legislation, policy, service provision and organisational structures in delivering whole family approaches within this topic. As part of this critique, you must consider how limitations in current legislation, policy, service provision and organisational structures impact the expectations of you, your role and performance as a professional, and any ethical dilemmas this may cause.
a conclusion which makes recommendations for policy, practice and further research.
In preparing the paper you could potentially draw upon the following sources: Social work and other related academic texts e.g. journal articles, books Government legislation, papers and policy Third sector documents from eg MIND, Women’s Aid, Joseph Rowntree Foundation Material published by service user and carer organisations, pressure groups
