Imagine you were the caseworker assigned to Amy’s family. You have gone out to the home and had your first meeting with Amy, her husband, and their children. Now you will write a case study about this family. In the 1st paragraph explain why you were sent out to the home by giving a brief summary of the case and the role you will play (family preservation worker, CPS, etc.)
In the next section discuss your observations of the family. What are your concerns? What strengths do you see?
Based on what you’ve learned so far, describe your plan for the family. What ethical interventions do you suggest for each member of the family? Explain why you think each of those interventions would be beneficial.
Finally, discuss how this case could have ended differently if ethical interventions had been put in place the first time the police were called.
