I am studying a BA honours in working with children young people and families so my case study analysis work needs to meet this degrees requirements. I am an undergraduate student so I would like you to use simple straightforward English as an undergraduate student. Also can you please use ‘English’ references and ‘English’ words in my assignment not ‘American’ please. Even though I choose an english writer to do my work this seems to be the case all the time and me telling you now will save me from giving it back to you and getting it done again and sending it for revision as I don’t have much time to that and want it to be correct the first time. Also please reference using the Harvard way throughout my work.
Also please include everything I have asked for please look at the lecture notes on and everything that links with domestic violence please include and critically analyse and don’t be too descriptive. Please look at the reading list and include them readings too. If you don’t understand anything feel free to message or call me.
Domestic violence case study
I am tired. I just returned from the solicitors. I had to fill out the forms to extend the injunction against my ex-husband, again. He will never leave me alone. I wonder if the police think it is my fault?
Today, I am in the shelter of my home, having left the women‘s refuge nine months ago. I want
to move on with my life and the lives of my children. Sometimes I wish Margareta was here to
support me as I decide what to do next. She was always there when I needed someone to talk to
at the refuge. She knew when I was crying silently in my room. The children felt safe at the
refuge , and they enjoyed going out with the other children. I could stay back and have time for
myself. That was really helpful. Maybe I will call her.
He was at our back window again. I always know when he has been there. Yesterday, the
children said he shows up at school sometimes. I should have known. He has complained to the
child welfare department that he wants to see his children. I think he just wants to get to me. It
isn‘t about them. The woman at the welfare office says that a father has the right to see his
children. I guess he went to anger management courses. What can I do?
If we have to go to court again, I hope we have the same judge as last time. She really put him
in his place. He tried to lie to her and she did not believe him. That was good. The police told me
to stay in touch with my solicitor. I will make another appointment. She knows me. She knows
Answer these questions for the case study by looking at the issues, what policies, legislations. theories, models, professionals, agencies will help.
Does anyone know him?
I guess there are men who say, ‘All right, then I’ll stop it’, or who give up at some point. And,
there are men like mine, who don’t quit. At some point you just have to hope.
