PCN-545 Child Abuse Assessment Case Study

Directions: Read the case study of Rachel and answer the questions following the case study.

Rachel is a 15- year-old Caucasian female. Rachel is a ward of the state and lives in a group home with 12 other girls. Rachel is in the group home because she has a pattern of arrests and truancy that led her to juvenile detention. After serving a sentence of 6 months in the juvenile detention center, she was remanded to a therapeutic group home for a year. Rachel sees her mother and father once a week, on family day.

Rachel has a history of learning difficulties and her case worker reports that she has been diagnosed with a cognitive disability. The case worker explains that Rachel lacks age-appropriate social cues and struggles to make friends.

Rachel was brought into your office by a group home case worker. The case worker explains that she discovered that Rachel has been communicating with an unknown male over a social networking website. The case worker explains that the material that has been shared is “inappropriate” and involves a tactic called “sexting.” There is little known about the online contact, for instance they do not know the individual’s age, name, or true identity.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
