    Case 1: Joseph

    Joseph is an 8-year-old first grader recently placed in foster care after an emergency removal from his home.

    Setting: Sunshine Mountain Elementary School and the foster home of Susan and Ed Smith.

    Additional information

    The team is meeting at the school to discuss Joseph and his current behaviors, to come to an agreed-upon course of action to assist Joseph with the remainder of the school year, and to deal with the possible threat of his bringing a gun to school.

    · The team consists of the following:

    · School counselor.

    · Children’s services case manager.

    · Guardian ad litem.

    · School administrator.

    · School psychologist.

    · Children’s services social worker.

    Situation (Information Previously Provided)

    Joseph, an 8-year-old first grader, has recently been placed in foster care after an emergency removal from this home, following a period of significant neglect and possible physical abuse. He has resided with Ed and Susan Smith for the past two months. Although many things have changed for Joseph, he was able to stay in the same school.

    Joseph is repeating the first grade, and there are concerns from the school staff about his educational progress. At the midyear point, Joseph is making slow progress, but there are concerns about his academic abilities. Prior to his removal from the home, school staff described Joseph as a quiet boy who mostly kept to himself. He was not disruptive in class and he did not have any significant behavioral difficulties to report. Mrs. Chetworth, Joseph’s teacher, described Joseph as a “sweet boy, very quiet who spends most of the day by himself.” The Smith family also reports that Joseph is a sweet boy who loves to help out around the house and does not cause any problems. They report that the transition has been smooth thus far, but that Joseph remains quiet and has said little about the event that led to his being placed in the foster home. Mrs. Smith did report that she has heard Joseph crying sometimes at night.

    Just recently, the school reports that Joseph has appeared more agitated and upset at school. He is often seen pacing at recess and Mrs. Chetworth reported that he seems more frustrated in the classroom when doing his work. He has been observed talking under his breath, slamming his locker door and snapping at his peers. The school principal has reported that several of Joseph’s classmates have told him that they heard Joseph talking about bringing a gun to school so that he would get in trouble and could visit his mother. This report was taken seriously by administration and Joseph has been removed from school until the team can develop a plan of action.

    Case 2: Mark

    Mark is a 28-year-old inmate in the transition unit at a correctional facility who is expected to be released in two months.

    Setting: Huntington Correctional Facility, Inmate Transition Unit, Job Placement Training Division.

    Additional Information

    The job placement coordinator has notified the case manager that the final transition meeting will be held. Included in this meeting are:

    · Job placement case manager

    · Lead officer of the Inmate Transition Unit

    · Facility social worker

    · The parole officer.

    The job placement case manager will be expected to speak about Mark. The parole officer may have some concerns about Mark returning to his home town. The social worker might weigh in by addressing the need for a workplace to have regular drug testing and other checks, then expressing concern that this may hinder employment options.

    Situation (Information Previously Provided)

    Mark has been an inmate at the Huntington Correctional Facility for four years. He is 28 years old and completed his GED during his time in the facility. Mark is currently in the Inmate Transition Unit, as he is set to be released in two months.

    Mark’s behavior and actions during his four years in the facility have provided him the opportunity to participate in job placement training. He has been in the program for three months. He has been attending educational activities as part of the program and has worked both in groups and individually with his job placement case manager. He has been an active participant and has shown skills in large engine mechanics.

    Vocational assessments indicate that Mark’s strengths include skill in working with this hands and strong problem-solving skills. His weaknesses include communicating with authority figures and asking for help. In order to successfully complete the program, Mark must complete a mock job interview with the job placement training coordinator. Mark is working with his case manager to prepare for this interview.
