Psychosocial Assessment Guide Since we all know social work doesn’t assign tests like other majors­here is something probably  as helpful to the equivalent of a study guide to a test for one of our largest assignments.  I typed out the main points of discussion/conversation through 26:54 (over half since there is  only 49:49 for the whole assessment.  I did this for the whole thing, and then went and answered the questions. I found it to be a really  great way to complete the project! Casey Casey lives in Columbus, Ohio and is seeing the social worker for pre­natal care (16 weeks and 3 days pregnant).  Born in Indiana and moved here when she was two.   Moved around a lot when she was younger, but pretty much stayed in same neighborhood area.  Mostly lived with mom­mom always around. Sometimes lived with aunt or grandmother.  Has mixed feelings about growing up, but says brothers and sisters had fun and that mom did  best with what she had. Family went through hard times: moving around, switching schools, not  fitting in, making new friends. As far as basic needs as food, housing etc­stayed in shelter for a  time or two but not for long. Mom would usually get something on the table­but if she didn’t get  to feed the kids, they knew they would be able to eat at school.  Her mom was born in Indiana and now lives in Columbus, so she continues to see her. However,  she sees her grandma as more of a mother figure because she was more stable, understands her  better, and is here in Columbus as well. No contact with her father. There was some contact when she was young, but she does not  remember it.  Step dad married mom when she was 7, now is on and off.  Has an older brother and younger half­brother and half­sister. She keeps in touch with them, but  is not very close. Ones that she is closest with, she sees in person more often than talking to over  the phone etc.  Younger half­sister lives in Indiana. Step dad used to call her names, and tell her she was stupid.  Step father would also come into her room at night when she was 7 or 8. She says that as a child  she did not know what was happening with this, but now realizes. (says she does not want to talk about it­no counseling on topic, never disclosed to anyone) Never any domestic violence in personal/romantic relationships. She says that she wouldn’t put  up with it. Says that she can express needs openly­and has no fears or intimidation for well­being immediately for her, but says neighborhood is generally not safe.  In her neighborhood there are gangs, shootings, drugs etc.  She usually sleeps downstairs in the living room, on the couch, to make sure that the kids are  safe. (Makes comment about how a pregnant woman on a couch is not ideal) Got married not too long ago. Joe. Father of baby. He is working in Kentucky as a construction  worker­ goes where he can get jobs.
