Please use your chapter readings and use the Library to research peer-reviewed studies to respond to the following:
In Chapter 9 you learned the unique characteristics of children being raised by a grandparent or by both grandparents. The chapter also discusses how these numbers are increasing, and that a grand family creation often stems from family trauma. Thus, human service workers must understand the familial unit and also increase knowledge of how to assist these families, and other families in society. Please answer the following:
- Discover interventions when working with grand families and explain how these interventions assist these families.
- Prepare an action plan assisting children living with grandparents.
- Prepare an action plan assisting the grandparent(s) raising grandchildren.
- Identify and evaluate two interventions that are presently in society to assist groups that are at risk for a decrease in healthy functioning.
