  • Review this week's Learning Resources.
  • Reflect on the family intervention techniques discussed for various issues.

Miguel has moved out but begs Rosa daily to change her mind and let him come home. Rosa has indicated she will attend family counseling before filing for divorce, to see if Miguel can change.
  • Consider intervention techniques or approaches you might apply in one of the two case studies above, including techniques for mitigating the effects of divorce/final separation or the loss of a parent/spouse.
With these thoughts in mind:

childhood lives where they experienced and witnessed the separation of their parents. Rosa is said
to have been the only child in her family and her parents separated when she was the age of 12,

having drinking issues or problems and the brother is not married at the age of 34. Miguel’s parents
separated when he was age of 10 and basing on the story Miguel has some flashbacks of his young
