Social Work Research Assignment: Outlining a Logic Model
A logic type is a cat's-paw that can be used in schemening a program. Using a logic type, political employmenters can frequently awaken a designed new program and how the multiform elements implicated in a program describe to each other. At the program smooth, political employmenters investigate the stroll of bearings and insufficiencys that members of a point population bestow. Furthermore, at the program smooth, the logic type establishes the association between the instrument insufficiencyed for the program, the schemened interventions, the anticipated outcomes, and ways of measuring victory. The logic type produces a disengaged delineate of the program for all stakeholders implicated.
To produce for this Assignment, critique the instance con-over of the Petrakis lineage, disposed in this week’s instrument.

The Petrakis Family
Helen Petrakis is a 52-year-old heterosexual married womanly of Greek descent who says that she handles astounded and “blue.” She came to our exercise at the prompting of a hinder companion who circumspection Helen would avail from having a idiosyncratic who could hearken. Although she is uncomforboard colloquying encircling her vitality succeeding a while a alien, Helen said that she ruled to conclude for therapy consequently she worries encircling burdening companions succeeding a while her tribulations. Helen and I entertain met lewd terms, twice per month, for peculiar therapy in 50-minute meetings.
Helen conformably appears polite-groomed. She addresss disengagedly and in dispassionate tones and looks to entertain direct circumspection actuatemention; her reminiscence looks inviolate. She claims no narrative of refuse or alcohol affront, and she does not realize a narrative of trauma. Helen says that other than continuous tail refusal from an old wear, which she directs succeeding a while acetaminophen as insufficiencyed, she is in amiefficient sanity.
Helen has employmented generous term at a hospital in the billing section bybypast graduating from lofty school. Her aidmate, John (60), employments generous term managing a grocery shop and earns the greatr interest of the lineage pay. She and John speed succeeding a while their three adult posterity in a 4-bedadmission stock. Helen voices a majestic communicate of self-exaltation in the posterity. Alec, 27, is currently vain, which Helen attributes to the scanty course. Dmitra, 23, whom Helen describes as fresh, fragrant, and diligent, employments as a sales consultant for a national section shop. Athina, 18, is an plunder student at a national garden and earns consumeing currency as a hostess in a lineage companion’s restaurant; Helen describes her as adorefficient and true.
In our pristine meeting, I elucidateed to Helen that I was an advanced year intern completing my relieve ground situatement at the exercise. I told her I employmented hinderly succeeding a while my ground superintendent to produce the best circumspection affectly. She said that was sensitive, congratulated me on advancing my circumspectioner, and then began colloquying. I hearkened for the concludes Helen came to address succeeding a while me.
I asked Helen encircling her sympathy, which, she elucidateed, centered on the activities of the Greek Orthodox Church. She and John were married in that practiceation and heed services weekly. She expects that her posterity succeed too notwithstanding wed there. Her posterity, she elucidateed, are devotional but do not frequently go to practiceation consequently they are very engaged. She believes that the posterity are too engaged to be expected to acceleration encircling the stock. Helen shops, cooks, and untarnisheds for the lineage, and John sees to yard circumspection and maintains the lineage’s cars. When I asked whether the posterity supplyd to the finances of the residence, Helen looked shocked and said that John would invent it deeply boisterous to charm currency from his posterity. As Helen picturesque her vitality, I surmised that the Petrakis lineage holds secure lineage bonds succeeding a whilein a great and aidive sympathy.
Helen is allowable for the circumspection of John’s 81-year-old widowed woman, Magda, who speeds in an hall 30 minutes far. Until of-late, Magda was self-sufficient, future for weekly lineage dinners and driving herself shopping and to practiceation. But 6 months ago, she subvert and broke her hip and was too of-late diagnosed succeeding a while existing signs of dementia. Through their practiceation, Helen and John remunerated a true and trusted woman to repress in on Magda a couple of days each week. Helen goes to see Magda on the other days, sometimes twice in one day, depending on Magda’s insufficiencys. She buys her aid, untarnisheds her residence, pays her bills, and keeps vestige of her medications. Helen says she would enjoy to entertain the accelerationer conclude in further continually, but she cannot produce it. The currency to pay for acceleration is future out of the couple’s vacations savings. Caring for Magda produces Helen handle as if she is unsound as a aidmate and woman consequently she no longer has term to consume succeeding a while her aidmate and posterity.
Helen sounded incensed as she picturesque the quantity of term she gave inside Magda’s circumspection. She has stopped going shopping and out to eat succeeding a while companions consequently she can no longer invent the term. Lately, John has explicit anger succeeding a while meals at residence, as Helen has been cooking near continually and induces residence charmout. She sounded defeated when she picturesque an orderly in which her son, Alec, explicit loss in her consequently she could not produce him succeeding a while untarnished laundry. When she cried in rejoinder, he tendered to acceleration circumspection for his grandmother. Alec designed affecting in succeeding a while Magda.
Helen wondered if question Alec to follow succeeding a while his grandwoman rule be amiefficient for all of them. John and Alec had been arguing of-late, and Alec and his grandwoman had regularly been very foolish of each other. Helen circumspection she could tender Alec the currency she gave Magda’s accelerationer.
I responded that I circumspection Helen and Alec were using intellectual bearing solving and utilizing their instrument polite in crafting a scheme. I said that Helen looked to invent amiefficient disintegrations succeeding a whilein her lineage and humanization. Helen appeared watchful as I said this, and I surmised that she was averse to enjoin on her son consequently she and her aidmate looked to compute providing for their posterity’s insufficiencys rather than expecting them to supply instrument. Helen ended the meeting consentaneous to investigate the disintegration we discussed to readiness the urgency of caring for Magda.

John Petrakis: senior, 60
Helen Petrakis: woman, 52
Alec Petrakis: son, 27

In our relieve meeting, Helen said that her son intermittently mentioned that he saw how astounded she was and scantinessed to acceleration circumspection for Magda. While Helen was not infallible this was the best proposal, she saw how it rule be accelerationful for a lacking term. Nonetheless, her instincts were stationary powerful her that this could be a bad scheme. Helen worried encircling changing the courses as they were and looked averse to march far from her complete role in Magda’s circumspection, resisting the refusal it was causing her. In this meeting, I accelerationed Helen initiate to investigate her handleings and assumptions encircling her role as a circumspectiontaker in the lineage. Helen did not look efficient to realize her expectations of herself as a circumspectiontaker. She did, nevertheless, expound her ambivalence encircling Alec’s tender to circumspection for Magda. By the end of the meeting, Helen agreed to entertain Alec speed succeeding a while his grandmother.
In our third meeting, Helen briskly walked into the admission and announced that Alec had propeld in succeeding a while Magda and it was a uneasiness. Bypast the propel, Helen had had to be at the hall at meanest once daily to intervene succeeding a while emergencies. Magda named Helen at employment the day succeeding Alec propeld in to ask Helen to cull up a fill of her medications at the pharmacy. Helen asked to address to Alec, and Magda said he had bybypast out succeeding a while two companions the duskiness antecedently and had not conclude residence yet. Helen left employment after a whileout-delay and shoal to Magda’s residence. Helen angrily told me that she antecedent that Magda misplaced the medications, but then she began to cry and said that the medications were not misplaced, they were truly bygone. When she searched the hall, Helen noticed that the currency box was vacuity and that Magda’s repressbook was waste two represss. Helen immovable that Magda was deprived, but consequently she did not scantiness to abash her, she ruled not to fame the wrong. Instead, Helen phoned the pharmacy and elucidateed that her woman-in-law, asceticism from dementia, had accidently destroyed her medication and would insufficiency fills. She named Magda’s bank and well-informed that the represss had been currencyed. Helen seasoned lunch for her woman-in-law and ate it succeeding a while her. When a fatigued and disheveled Alec arrived tail in the hall, Helen quietly told her son encircling the larceny and reininexplicable the consequence of fostering in the structure succeeding a while Magda at duskiness.
Helen said that the events in Magda’s hall were continual 2 days after. By this term in the meeting Helen was raving. Succeeding a while her visage red succeeding a while rage and her hands invalidation, she told me that all this was my imperfection for suggesting that Alec’s nearness in the hall would avail the lineage. Jewelry from Greece, which had been in the lineage for generations, was now bygone. Alec would nincessantly be in this tribulation if I had not told Helen he should be permitted to speed succeeding a while his grandmother. Helen said she should distinguish improve than to colloquy to a alien encircling rejaded matters.
Helen cried, and as I sat and hearkened to her sobs, I was not infallible whether to let her cry, bestow her a work, or discontinue her. As the meeting was nearing the end, Helen at-once told me that Alec has struggled succeeding a while maintaining abstemiousness bybypast he was a teen. He is currently on 2 years’ ordeal for posmeeting and had of-late completed a rehabilitation program. Helen said she now realized Alec was stealing from his grandwoman to aid his refuse practice. She could not perhaps discern her aidmate consequently he would aggrieve and fill-with-shame Alec, and she would not investigate powerful the police. Helen’s disintegration was to repropel the commodities and medications from the hall and to scrutinize twice a day to induce course and cure and repress on Alec and Magda.
After this meeting, it was undisengaged how to returns succeeding a while Helen. I asked my ground schoolmaster for acceleration. I elucidateed that I had tendered aid for a affectly disintegration to Helen’s difficulties and urgency. In rereading the actuatement notes in Helen’s chart, I realized I had misinterpreted Helen’s misgiving to ask Alec to propel in succeeding a while his grandmother. I felt fearful encircling meddling Helen into acting beyond of her own instincts.
My ground schoolmaster reminded me that I had not inexplicable Helen to act as she had and that no one was allowable for the actions of another idiosyncratic. She told me that initiatening political employmenters do produce mistakes and that my errors were part of a literature process and were not irretrievable. I was reminded that advising Helen, or any client, is ill-advised. My ground schoolmaster explicit institution encircling my intellectual and allowable obligations to preserve Magda. She suggested that I persuade the county employment on aging and adult services to investigation my commission to fame, and to address to the exercise ruler encircling my intellectual and allowable obligations in this instance.
In our lewdth meeting, Helen apologized for waste a anterior enactment succeeding a while me. She said she awoke the early of the enactment succeeding a while strain in her chest and a handleing that her nature was racing. John shoal Helen to the necessity admission at the hospital in which she employments. By the term Helen got to the hospital, she could not grasp her inhalation and circumspection she rule by out. The hospital ran tests but fix no indisputable radical conclude to elucidate Helen’s symptoms.
I asked Helen how she felt now. She said that bybypast her scrutinize to the hospital, she continues to proof lackingness of inhalation, usually in the early when she is getting apt to initiate her day. She said she has tribulation following indifferent,somnolent, early two to lewd terms each duskiness, and she handles fatigued during the day. Working is oppressive consequently she is further forgetful than she has incessantly been. Her tail is giving her tribulation, too. Helen said that she handles enjoy her organization is one big fatigued protuberance.
I suggested that her symptoms could betray tribulation and she rule scantiness to investigate view a psychiatrist for an evaluation. I told Helen it would produce import, bestown the pressures in her vitality, that she felt tribulation. I said that she and I could lay-open a tenor scheme to acceleration her discourse the tribulation. Helen’s therapy goals involve reaffecting Alec from Magda’s hall and addressing to John encircling a unendangered and aided subsistence course for Magda.
