Case Study: Chelsea and Chen
Chelsea, a 34-year-old white female, moved to Riverbend City five years ago. After she completed her master’s internship in school counseling, she took a job as the school counselor in the Riverbend City elementary school system.
She is working with Chen, a nine-year-old girl. When Chen was five, Mr. and Mrs. Clark adopted her through an agency that works in conjunction with Chinese orphanages. Although Chen had been in the orphanage since birth, it took longer to find a family for her because she was born with a cleft palate.
The Clarks could afford and were willing to pay for the surgery to repair Chen’s palate. The surgery took place when Chen was six years old. It was hard on Chen to have such a major surgery, but her palate and lip were corrected with a moderate remaining scar.
The Clarks are loving parents, committed to Chen’s adjustment and progress, and are cooperating with any recommendations given by professionals. The Clarks have no other children.
Chen is small for her age and is very quiet. She is in the third grade and is a good student. As a reading project, each member of the class had to give a book report in front of the class. Chen read her chosen book and wrote the book report, but refused to stand in front of the class to give the report. When the teacher tried to nudge Chen to give her report, Chen ran out of the room crying.
The teacher was concerned about the incident, Chen’s lack of confidence in herself, and her seeming inability to interact with the other children. So she referred Chen to Chelsea.
Consider the individual, family, societal, cultural, and ethical issues that Chelsea must think about as she interacts with Chen, her teacher, and her adoptive parents.
Think of this assessment as a report you would make in a professional context.
Analyze how the problem described in the case study you selected may unfairly impact members of the populations described in the Introduction to Hays’s ADDRESSING Model document. Initially, you should brainstorm as many such effects as possible that relate to the case you selected.
When you have developed many entries, combine ideas that are similar.
Assess each of your remaining entries in terms of importance:
In what ways is it inequitable?
How great or severe is the effect?
How many people may be affected?
Take care that you do not allow your own biases to minimize your assessments.
Choose the entry that seems to be of greatest importance on the basis of your evaluation, and elaborate on that aspect for your selected case.
Write a 68 page paper in which you examine three main areas as they relate to the specific case you have selected:
Theory: Application of theory to the specific case.
Research: Understanding of research methods and application of findings.
Cultural Competence: Knowledge and application of cultural competency skills.
Select a minimum of two theories that are relevant to the case you chose. The theories should help explain concerns for the client, such as developmental or contextual issues. Analyze how those psychological theories point toward potential solutions for a problem.
Of the theories you select, make sure at least one provides a framework for understanding the cultural issues between the individuals in the case.
Explain how these theories help us to understand the individual client or patient in the case and how they can direct the professionals in the case to a potential solution.
Note that theory can help us understand where the individual (client or patient) is in her development. For example, psychosocial theory would help explain individual development, or ecological systems theory would help explain the impact of environmental interaction on the individual.
Select two original research studies that help us understand the situation in the case you selected and potentially lead to interventions in the case.
Cite the research studies, using APA style.
Explain the research design and methods used in the research studies. What type of research was conducted, who was studied, and how?
Describe the researchers’ findings.
Next, explain how the findings in the studies relate to the case you selected. How do these findings help us formulate a potential solution or intervention in the case?
Cultural Competence
Use a model of cultural competency to explain the competencies needed for working in a culturally diverse environment.
Apply those cultural competencies to assist the professional in your case to help resolve a particular culture-related issue.
Construct a plan to develop your own professional cultural sensitivity. For this section you may write in first person.
Explain how the guidelines you developed for the professional will help guide you in your future work as a professional.
Discuss some steps you could take to further your own growth in cultural competencies.
The following is a recommended structure for organizing your work for this assessment:
Create a title page: Write a brief title that concisely conveys the purpose of this report. It is suggested that you use the APA Paper Template [DOCX] to format your paper according to the APA manual (current edition).
Write an introduction: For the introduction section of your paper, include the title at the top of the first page. (In APA format, the word Introduction is not used as a heading.) Briefly summarize:
The case you have chosen.
How theories and research, in general terms, explain why the issue may have developed.
How the case relates to culture-related attitudes that may affect future professional behavior.
Create a heading titled Cultural Issue: Describe how the circumstances in the case study you chose unfairly impact members of one or more of the populations described in the Introduction to Hays’s ADDRESSING Model document.
Create a heading titled Theoretical Explanations: Apply two or more psychological theories to explain how this culture-related issue may have developed.
Create a heading titled Professional Behaviors: Analyze how attitudes related to culture, ethnicity, and diversity may have adversely affected professional behaviors within the case study scenario.
Create a heading titled Research Findings: Present the research methods and findings from two research studies and analyze how they relate to your selected case.
Create a heading titled Proposed Cultural Guidelines and Competencies:
Evaluate what cultural competencies a psychologist may use to help resolve this culture-related issue.
Propose general guidelines to improve or resolve this cultural issue and help prevent its reoccurrence.
Describe the competencies necessary for working in a culturally diverse environment.
Integrate psychological principles with your personal values and goals to formulate guidelines for your personal and professional behavior with regard to culture, ethnicity, and diversity.
Create a heading titled Conclusion:
Reflect upon and assess how your own attitudes associated with culture, ethnicity, and diversity may affect your future professional behaviors.
Explain how the guidelines you developed will help you.
Discuss some steps you could take to further your own growth in cultural competencies.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
