Question: PLACEMENT CASE STUDY

This essay focuses on assessment, intervention and review within social work practice.

Vignette

C. is a white, British male aged 10 years who was removed from his mother’s care in March, 2007 under S.20 of the Children Act 1989, after having been made subject to a child protection plan, under the category of ‘neglect’
(DfES, 2006).

The reasons for C’s removal were multifarious and included concerns regarding inadequate parenting capacity, C.’s deteriorating behaviour both at school and at home and regular periods of absconding, all of which led to concerns regarding C.’s physical safety and emotional well-being.

In addition, C. suffers from diabetes and whilst in the care of his mother, he was hospitalised on a number of occasions due to dangerous fluctuations in his blood sugar levels. During one of these periods, C. displayed some sexually inappropriate behaviour on the ward, which has not been witnessed since, but which did cause great distress to the other young person
involved and to C.’s mum.

It was at this point, and following initial case conference, that mum agreed for C. to be accommodated. He then spent a number of months moving between foster carers and residential units, followed by eighteen
months in an independent school.

C’s younger sister, S. (then aged 7 years) however, remained in their mother’s care, subject to a child protection plan under the category of ‘neglect / emotional abuse’ (DfES, 2006). In September, 2008, the child protection review conference (DfES, 2006) decided to discharge the child protection plan for S. and look at the rehabilitation of C. back home to the care of his mother.

At this point, C. was referred to the outreach service at which I am on placement, by his social worker who was requesting intense support from our service in order to prevent further family breakdown.

Answer: Here, using Sutton’s (1999, cited in Milner and O’Byrne, 2002) ASPIRE model of assessment and intervention, I will demonstrate how ‘…assessment is...
