Part 1Last week, you helped your hypothetical client, Teresa, find stable shelter, food, and transportation. In this unit, youwill continue to provide intervention services for Teresa and her children as you learn that there are much morecomplicated issues involved in her case.Read the new scenario and respond to the questions.Scenario: Now that you successfully helped Teresa and her six children to move into public housing (months afterthe first visit), to find assisted daycare, to find her a job, and to provide mental health services for two of herchildren, you realize that the family is still not fully stabilized.Teresa visits your office late one afternoon as you are getting ready to leave. She only has one of her children,Javier, who is five years old. In past visits, you have noticed that he is the only of her six children who is quiet andin fact, seems withdrawn. Tell her! Teresa demands.Crying quietly, Javier curls up in the chair and refuses to pull his head up. Teresa smacks the back of his head andyells, I SAID tell her! This time, Javier jumps up out of his seat and looks right at you. NO! he shouts and criesharder. Trying to make sense of all of this, you firmly ask Teresa to sit in your chair at your desk to separate motherand child and to keep him from being hit further. You move to the chair beside him and quietly ask if he wants totalk to you in private. He nods. Teresa agrees to leave and when she does, Javier tells you that his uncle hurt him.After more questions, you understand that Javier is reporting sexual abuse. You leave the office and tell Teresa thatyou would have to make a call to the abuse hotline. She understands but insists that nothing really happened. Sheadds, Good, you can get an officer in here to tell him to stop lying. You make the report.When the police leave, you are more baffled than before. The uncle is really the boys great uncle and should not beliving with them because he is not on the public housing list of approved occupants for the house. Further, he issharing a room with two of Teresas youngest sons. Teresa absolutely refused to tell him to leave. The police officerwill investigate further with the child protective officer, but not that night. Teresa and the son return to the home, andthe police escort them to ensure that the great uncle leaves the premises.
