Review the Child Abuse Treatment Case Study. Complete the Child Abuse Treatment Plan Template. Explore the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Administration for Children & Families website, paying specific attention to the sections regarding child abuse. I have pasted the Case Study along with the template to the body of this message. I also attached copies of both.
Case Study: Marisa
Marisa is an 11-year-old Hispanic-American female. Marisa is in the 7th grade at a local school. She lives with her biological mother and her stepfather. Marisa has three siblings: one brother and two sisters. Marisa is the oldest child. Marisaâs biological father is inconsistently in her life, and visits with her a couple of times a year. He lives in the same city as Marisa, but doesnât seem to hold a job long enough for her mother to collect child support. Marisa is the only child from her motherâs first marriage; her siblings were born during her motherâs current marriage.
Marisa has been to therapy âa couple of timesâ when she was 6 years old. Marisaâs mother reports that she (mother) has always had difficulty âmanaging Marisaâs behavior.â
Marisa reports that she visits her school counselor sometimes.
Marisaâs mother has brought Marisa into your office seeking counseling for oppositional behavior. Marisaâs mother reports âMarisa is so disrespectful; she talks back, yells at me, and just wonât do what she is told.â While you are talking with Marisa and her mother they describe a recent argument. Marisa reports that her mother âslapped meâ during the argument. Marisaâs mother reports, âShe hit me; I had to do something.â As you tell Marisa and her mother that you are a mandatory reporter and start describing what that means, Marisaâs mother gets upset and leaves the office, taking Marisa with her.
Due to the intake paperwork, you have the familyâs address and demographic information.
