For this assignment, you will develop a hypothetical couple or family case. The purpose of the assignment is to provide you an opportunity to review and reflect on your clinical development of a case study. You will develop a genogram for this fictional couple or family and choose from specific theoretical models to use, depending on your degree program. The analysis will include theory-based interventions that align with the clinical model chosen. You will also develop a diagnosis for the clients or family using the DSM-5.

Your assignment will include three parts:

  • Case overview with supporting genogram.
  • Theoretical model, interventions, and diagnosis.
  • Reflection.

You will need to use and cite a minimum of eight scholarly resources; the length of the paper should be a minimum of 12 typed, double spaced pages.

Case Overview With Supporting Genogram

In 2–3 paragraphs, provide a general description of your selected case, an identification of the clients, and any other presenting information that sets a context for the case and your work with it. Create a supporting genogram that aligns with the narrative for this hypothetical case. The case should include a family system—that is, at least two clients in a relationship with each other. You may choose a family or a couple. Be sure to identify who is attending the sessions.

Theoretical Model, Interventions, and Diagnosis 

Learners in the Marriage and Family Counseling/Therapy program, choose from this list of theoretical models:

  • Strategic family therapy, including the MRI and Milan models (theorists: Weakland, Jackson, Watzlawick, Haley, Madanes, Palazzoli, Boscolo, Cecchin, Prata).
  • Intergenerational family therapy (theorist: Bowen).
  • Structural family therapy (theorist: Minuchin).

Learners in the Mental Health Counseling program, choose from this list of theoretical models:

  • Bioecological theory (theorist: Bronfenbrenner).
  • Structural family therapy (theorist: Minuchin).
  • Intergenerational family therapy (theorist: Bowen).

After you have identified the theoretical model you will use, complete the following:

  • Identify the theoretical model you used, and provide a brief overview of the model. Include the theory of change, stance of the therapist, and founding theorists. It is important to use peer-reviewed references to support your discussion of the theory; look for seminal articles written by the founding theorists.
  • Include interventions that are used according to the model, providing questions you would ask during the therapy session. Include a discussion on these questions and how the interventions used relate to the theoretical model. For example, if you were using solution-focused therapy, you might ask the miracle question or a scaling question.
  • Using the DSM-5, determine a diagnosis for the couple or family. Include a brief discussion about how you developed this diagnosis. Make sure to include seminal articles from the founding theorists for the model as citations for this section.


In 1–2 pages, write a conclusion summarizing what you learned about yourself as a counselor or therapist. Address the following:

  • How have you learned as a counselor or therapist to take care of yourself?
  • What are some areas you recognize as strengths and challenges?
  • When do you think it is important for a counselor or therapist to seek supervision?
  • What will you do as a counselor or therapist to increase your own awareness of diversity when working with clients? Provide examples.
  • What are some possible issues that may arise when working with a client from a different cultural background from yours?
