Case Study: Jonathan Janice and Ronald, a couple, come to a scheduled appointment with you. During the phone intake, they alluded to some problems with their son but weren’t willing to elaborate. To your surprise, when they arrive, they have their son with them. Jonathan is 15. He is tall for his age, has long hair, and wears nail polish and earrings. Jonathan is also very angry. Janice and Ronald explain that they have been married for 30 years. Jonathan, their youngest child, was a surprise baby; their older children, Manny and Wayne, are 27 and 29. You ask Jonathan what the issue is, but he refuses to answer. Reluctantly, Janice says that Jonathan was “always different” growing up and that he had a hard time with toilet training. This statement elicits an explosion of anger from Jonathan. He then withdraws from the conversation again. Ronald says that Jonathan has always had a hard time fitting in. Their small town is relatively conservative, he says, and there haven’t been options for him to “express himself.” Ronald explains that Jonathan would probably be “more normal” if he could just rebel a little and get it out of his system. When you ask what “it” is, Ronald shuts down. Janice is similarly inarticulate. Finally, Jonathan says, “I can’t take this anymore.” He then explains that he has felt all his life like he was in the wrong body. As a child, he liked to play with dolls and dress-up rather than sports. He knows that Ronald is disappointed that Jonathan didn’t follow in his footsteps to play football. Most of Jonathan’s friends, both as a child and now, are girls. He feels deeply that he should be a girl and wants to transition, including medical and hormonal interventions. He has told his parents repeatedly that he needs help from them to manage this process, but they maintain that it’s “just a phase” and “something’s wrong with him.” For example, he once told Janice that he should have been born a girl; Janice’s response was to caution him not to talk about such things for fear of being made fun of. Previously, Jonathan has been diagnosed with stress-related issues and has struggled with both depression and anxiety. His parents believe that he will feel better once he “grows out of” the conflict between his physical body and his feelings. Jonathan believes he will feel better once he is in a body that feels like his. Instructions To complete this assignment, use the required Identifying Relevant Theories and Models Template [DOCX] to write an APA-formatted paper. After reading Jonathan’s case study above, address the following:
Describe three theories that you feel might be appropriate for addressing the client’s sexual problem. Include a section on how neuroscience has facilitated our understanding of the client’s problem. Evaluate how one of the theories conceptualizes human psychosexual development across the lifespan and how it is applicable to the client’s stage of life.
Describe how one of the theories would approach the treatment of the client’s identified gender identity issues.
Describe a systems perspective that provides an understanding of family and other systems theories and major models of family and related interventions as it pertains to human sexuality. Describe strategies to work affirmatively with the sexual and gender expansive aspects of the case study. Include references. Create a references list with a minimum of 3–5 scholarly sources. Make sure that your references support the theory and model selections you selected. Visit Evidence and APA in the Capella Writing Center for information on integrating sources into your paper.
Your completed paper should be 4–6 pages long.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
