Sociology Topic: Final Paper Paper details: Final Integrative Paper (Due Week 7) Select a client (past or present) or an acquaintance of at least 65 years of age. If an acquaintance, interview this person for approximately 45 minutes to one hour using the following questions as a guide to elicit information. (Please adapt these questions to your style and that of the interviewee — be creative!) Please preserve confidentiality – do not use any names or other clearly identifiable information. Assure the adult that you will preserve confidentiality. 1. Write a paper (8-10 pages) about this person from a psychosocial framework (Erikson). Identify the crisis and resolution or lack of resolution for each developmental life stage. In addition to the psychosocial perspective, apply two additional theories that you learned in this course to describe this elderly individual's life. Include issues of ethnicity, gender, culture, age, social class, race, education, oppression, etc. Include biopsychosocial factors or events that may have facilitated and/or inhibited the resolution of the psychosocial crisis. 2. Ask the person to discuss in depth with you developmental stages in their life. What were some important episodes/events that they recall from this stage? What was important about them? What issue were they working on? How did they feel during these stages of life? In general? About themselves? About others around them? About their environment? (think about it from an ecological perspective) 3. What did they want most during these stages? What were some difficult challenges and proud accomplishments of key phases? What were external/internal resources that made it possible/impossible to achieve goals? How did family, groups, culture, communities, and organizations help or hinder the person in fulfilling aspirations? What contributions has this person made to society in his/her own view? Please do not reproduce the interview verbatim, but provide enough quotes that demonstrate your ability to apply some of the theoretical material to a real person. You may need to take some notes during the interview (consider taping it, but you will need written permission to do so) or summarize an account of the interview as soon as you can following the interview. The purpose of this paper is to integrate what you have learned from this course about human behavior and apply this knowledge to your client or acquaintance.

Social workers: CPB 23: Utilize conceptual frameworks to guide the processes of assessment, intervention, and evaluation CPB 24: Critique and apply knowledge to understand person and environment 2.1.3 – Apply critical thinking to inform and communicate professional judgments.
