Think about the following
- How do you believe that this situation is impacting Regan? How can you further assess this?
- What is your personal reaction to Markus’ feelings and behaviour? To Raissa’s feelings and behaviour? How is this influencing your decision-making?
- Reflecting on other similar situations and families with whom you have worked in the past, what has been helpful?
- What does the research say about impact of exposure to violence on infants/toddlers/school age children? On women?
- What are the possibilities of reproducing patriarchy, of punishing Raissa in any child welfare intervention? How can you work within a gendered perspective, while considering the role of child welfare?
What do you do?
