The paper should move beyond a mere description, and be an analysis of themes, conflicts, significant events, transactional relationships and their consequences on his development.  Integrate class discussion and evidence of readings from both the text and syllabus throughout the paper.

Avoid direct quotations from readings, but rather pull ideas from and integrate them, along with your own critical thinking, into your paper. Avoid using lengthy quotes from the narrative (assume I know the story). Provide evidence/reasoning for your conclusions based on the clinical material (narrative).

Discuss your understanding of Billy from a comprehensive biopsychosocial-spiritual, integrative and developmental perspective. Use this perspective as four main headings in your paper. Detail significant events in his life and how they affected his development.  Please be certain to fully address each of the following:

             Consider meso level systems (family, school, friends, community, etc.)  past and present, and the ways in which this individual has both affected and been affected by these systems.  Discuss meso level resources and risks.

             Consider the influences of ethnicity, race, culture, class, gender, sexual orientation, abilities/disabilities and spirituality/religion on the individual’s development including the interplay between the individual’s characteristics and societal responses.  What opportunities/risks have these posed to the individual?

             Discuss macro level systems (e.g., laws, policies, programs, benefits, etc,) and the impact these have had on this character’s life.  Discuss macro level resources and risks.

             Consider stressors that this individual has been exposed to (e.g., poverty, un/under employment, migration, biases, racism, sexism, discrimination, violence, trauma, loss, etc.).
