Student Instructions: You are an intact family worker with a private child welfa
Student Instructions: You are an intact family worker with a private child welfare agency. The Cedenos were referred to you by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Your agency’s program goal is to work with families who have come to the attention of DCFS and provide family preservation interventions. DCFS will keep an open case on this family to ensure that they work with your agency. You are asked to make an analysis of the family situation and provide services to the family. Current Situation: A man called the child abuse hotline to report his concerns about a 3-year-old boy named Sean. The man stated that he was Nina’s co-worker. According to the reporter, Mrs. Nina Cedeno confided in another co-worker that her husband “beat Sean with a belt last night”. Several months ago, Mrs. Cedeno told another co-worker about her husband’s “violent temper”, but this is the first time she has said anything about her son being hurt. According to the reporters, Sean has come into the store where his mother works twice with bruises on his face. On one occasion, Mrs. Cedeno said that her son was very clumsy and that he keeps falling off of a swing at nursery school. The reporter continued by noting that the Cedenos have a 7-year old daughter, Tamara, and she seemed extremely shy. According to the reporter, Sean is enrolled at A New Beginning Child Development Center. Family Composition: The Cedeno family is Mexican American and consists of: Benjamin who is the father and is 32, Nina who is the mother and is 30, and their two children – their daugher Tamara who is 7, and their son Sean who is 3. The Cedenos live in a two-story garden apartment. The apartment building appears in need of repair. Family Background: The Cedenos have been married for almost ten years. They met in Texas at a fiesta and have been together ever since. They have a family income of about $32,000 a year. They have not been able to save any money, because they have had to move four times in three years. Their parents were originally from Mexico. The Cedenos are fluent in Spanish and identify as Mexican. Other Mexican families also live in the Cedenos’ apartment complex. However, most of the Cedeno’s family resides in Texas. The Cedenos moved to Brooklyn from Texas about three years ago to find better jobs. Mrs. Cedeno has two sisters and three brothers, all of whom live in Texas. Her parents recently moved back to Mexico, and she does not see them much. Mr. Cedeno has five older brothers and three younger sisters. Most of his siblings live in Texas and California. He had one older brother and two younger sisters who live about two miles from him. He is very close to his family, but finances have prohibited him from returning to Texas or Mexico to visit other family members. The Cedenos hope to save enough money to move to Mexico.
