Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Part 1: Create the Case: Adolescence
Create a simulated case study, relevant to your area of specialization, of an adolescent who presents developmental challenges related to Erikson’s age- or stage-related milestones expected at his or her age.
Your case study should be 1–2 pages in length and it should describe:
• The adolescent and his or her strengths and challenges.
• A challenge for the adolescent in terms of identity and self-concept.
• The medical, family, and social context.
• The developmental challenges evident in the behavior of the adolescent.
• Evidence in the case that the adolescent struggles by not meeting the expected milestones of Erikson’s theory of adolescent development.
• Individual and cultural factors that theory and/or research indicate could impact the adolescent’s development.
• Any other factors you deem appropriate based on your understanding of the theory and related research.
To develop this case, you should:
• Explore theory and research related to development linked to adolescence.
• Utilize current research on adolescent brain development to describe potential outcomes linked to brain development at this age, including important considerations in the case you are developing.
• Develop your case study further by creating an environmental context for the adolescent. Include any specific issues that you want to explore through research, such as influences of a specific culture or ethnicity or specific socioeconomic status.
• Maintain a resource list of the materials you consulted to build your case.
Follow current APA guidelines for style and formatting, as well as for citing your resources. Include a reference list of the scholarly resources you use.
Part 2: Adolescent Case Intervention Analysis
Complete the following:
• Research evidence-based interventions that have been effective in meeting the challenges of the adolescent you described in your case study, from the perspective of your own professional specialization (as far as possible).
o Explain how the deficits in the social-emotional developmental domain impact development.
o Explain how the environmental contexts impact development.
o State the recommended interventions that align with your specialization.
o Include evidence for those recommendations and outcomes from the professional literature.
Explore briefly the literature on adult identity and self-concept, considering that early influences can impact development across the lifespan.
o Explain, from the perspective of your specialization, how the identity issues (for example, Erikson’s theoretical perspective) that emerged in adolescence could be manifested in adulthood.
o Explain how this might help in understanding and determining an approach to working with an adult with a history of identity issues.
