Social Worker Scenario
Patricia is a 17-year-old, Caucasian female who was referred to a Social Worker by her probation officer. Patricia was arrested after she and a few friends attempted to rob a neighborhood store and Patricia was court-ordered to meet with a Social Worker. Patricia has a history of angry outbursts, is defiant, and often argues with authority figures.
Using the readings and the vignette above, submit a one-page paper including the following:

Please consider any cultural considerations.
The paper should be approx. one page and include high-quality writing. Please include a title page and double-check all spelling and grammar prior to submitting. Also, please make sure to cite all relevant information and include references as appropriate.
