A Study in Critical Thinking: Raissa and her Family

Think about the following

  1. How do you believe that this situation is impacting Regan?  How can you further assess this?
  2. What is your personal reaction to Markus’ feelings and behaviour? To Raissa’s feelings and behaviour? How is this influencing your decision-making?
  3. Reflecting on other similar situations and families with whom you have worked in the past, what has been helpful?
  4. What does the research say about impact of exposure to violence on infants/toddlers/school age children? On women?
  5. 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?
