Transcript of P&S Sequence 2-CPS

The Situation
Allie is a social worker working for the Arizona Department of Economic Security, reporting directly to Child Protective Services. She has just been issued an assignment to investigate the living conditions of a nine-year-old child, Luke, with diabetes. There have been reports from Luke's school about the possibility of physical abuse by the child's father, Anakin, and unsanitary living conditions in the home.
The Physical: Problem
Allie must visit the family, interview both the father and the son, and assess the living conditions. However, there are challenges. First, Anakin does not speak English, only Russian, and Allie's only foreign language is Spanish. Second, Anakin refuses to let Allie on the premises.
The Emotional: Problem
Allie notices that Luke's diabetes is also being neglected by his father. She also notices that both Luke and Anakin are emotionally distraught by her presence. Anakin does not agree with her investigating their situation. His state of mind can lead to more physical abuse and denial of Allie's assistance.
The Circumstantial: Problem
The case with Luke and his father has also made Allie aware that their neighbor is a recent client, a single mother named Lea who was physically abused by her boyfriend. In her visits to Luke, she has also talked to Lea a few times to see how she is doing. Lea has recommended you to a friend, Skye, also a young single mother, because she and her son are being physically abused by her partner. Skye's partner is forty-five years old, is reported to be extremely aggressive and taking medication for a heart condition. Lea wants Allie to help her friend.
