(Thyer 2012) He applied ideas of individual systems, parts, and processes to understanding the entirety of an organism. Applying this to systems as a family, we can see that a family operates as a unit with interrelated systems that affect the unit either as a whole or within the individuals. Referring clients to specialists and connecting clients to resources, allows the social work to help the client navigate between each of the systems and ultimately help the client’s situation. In reference to the Jarvis family, the social worker recommended the intervention is to seek specialized help to help the children better get over their traumatic experience. Furthermore, she recognized that Mrs. Jarvis too would benefit from speaking with someone to address how it had affected her and her future
Disabled children have the same rights as any other child to feel safe and be protected from harm. According to ‘Working Together to Safeguard Children’ “Safeguards for disabled children are essentially the same as for non-disabled children. Particular attention should be paid to promoting high standards of practice and a high level of awareness of the risks of harm, and strengthening the capacity of children and families to help themselves.” Disabled children are increasingly vulnerable to abuse and neglect which is why attention should be paid to their well-being. The guidance ‘Safeguarding disabled children – Practice Guidance’ gives professionals advice on the indicators of abuse or neglect. According to ‘Safeguarding disabled children – Practice Guidance’, indicators that a disabled child is being neglected or abused can be, “A bruise in a site that might not be of concern on an ambulant child, such as the shin, might be of concern on a non-mobile child, Not getting enough help with feeding leading to malnourishment, Poor toileting arrangement or Lack of stimulation” The guidance ‘Safeguarding disabled children – Practice Guidance’ is effective as it gives EYPs a view on how to safeguard children with additional needs as they are at an increased risk of neglect and abuse due to their vulnerability.
There are school counselors, teachers, social workers, medical providers, friends, and family that nurture children every day and we want to acknowledge those efforts that mean so much for all of our children. However, child abuse and neglect is a complicated and nuanced issue where we must balance safety with long term outcomes for children. Where we are trying hard to protect children with the information and tools that we have been given to do so. And, it takes many players to make a team that creates a safety net for those that cannot protect themselves- from the individuals around a child, the systems that are tasked with caring for children, and the legislative actions taken to make laws and provide resources to do so.
What to do if you’re worried that a child is being abused this is guidance to help those working with children safeguard and promote their welfare. It also looks at the action if a child needs protection, our specially trained staff will normally investigate together with the police. We may arrange a child protection conference where the family of the child and professional staff can share information and agree ways to protect your child. One way of doing this is to agree a child protection plan which will outline what needs to change and what help will be received. The plan will also help to inform all the professionals working with the family so they too
An example which underpins this theory is WRAP, wellness action recovery plan, WRAP is seen a lot in the mental health setting, it is a self-designed prevention process that anyone can use to get well, stay well and make their life the way they want it to be. (REF). In clinical practice the nurse must ensure the group attending the course must consist of different learning styles for it to work effectively.
Children go through many transitions, so it is important that the children’s key person is meeting their individual needs. They should always be positive and welcoming. When aiming to meet children’s individual needs, practitioners must regard every child as unique. Likewise, the practitioner must acknowledge that attachment is important for a child’s emotional well-being during transitions, therefore they must ensure that the child feels a sense of acceptance, love and respect. Similarly, if possible, a transition should be thoughtfully planned and organised so that the child will receive the appropriate amount of support and are able to do it at their own pace.
Staff effectively use the services of the independent advocate whose good rapport with the young people enables informal chats about the reasons why young people go missing. Strategy meetings address any safeguarding concerns and ensure that young people who frequently go missing receive the right guidance and support. Risk management strategies and key work sessions allow staff to talk to the young people and encourage them to keep safe. Staff act on safeguarding concerns to ensure prompt investigation in conjunction with the placing authority and other safeguarding agencies. Where an investigation outcome has been inconclusive, staff continue to monitor young people’s well-being to ensure their continued safety.
(2010) self report remains the gold standard when assessing a patient’s level of pain. McCaffrey (1968) believes that pain may be defined as “whatever the experiencing person says it is, existing whenever the experiencing person says it does”, is therefore why self report is essential when carrying out a pain assessment, in order to fully understand what the patient may be experiencing. However both Von Baeyer (2006) and Voepel-Lewis et al. (2002) stress the importance of assessing the child’s cognitive ability, their level of understanding and ensuring they are not overly distressed when reporting their own level of pain. Assessing the child’s level of understanding can help ensure an accurate result is obtained.
These four conditions are consequences of abuse and neglect, the challenges of attachment to the caregiver, a child's changing senses, and response to stress (Committee on Early Childhood). Most caregivers foster more than one child at a time and give attention to some more than the others and they can take this very harshly. In a new situation with new strangers is hard especially for the older children who are accustomed to being with family members or guardian. In another source, “Children in Foster Care and the Developmental of Favorable Outcomes” by Cynthia V. Healey, she explains that children have become victims in the foster care system no matter if they end up adopted or not. Favorable outcome “were defined as demonstrations of emotions” during the middle of childhood (Children in Foster Care).
PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION THERAPY NAME: INSTITUTION: DATE: Question 1 Yes. I agree with the coercion hypothesis and think it is very reasonable, it reflects the common situation in many households worldwide. Where the parent in good faith tries to disciple the child by being harsh this procedure of discipline gives short-term results. (Lanier et al., 2015) As time progresses the child rebels only to get more harsh treatment and punishment from the parent. This state leaves the parent-child relationship on the rocks with a lot of tension.
