This chapter presents a case study concerning the author's social work experience with the Drays family. It explains that both parents have a large extended family and they had initially sought social services assistance for financial support after the birth of their first child. The purpose of the intervention was to break the family's pattern of reactive behaviour. This chapter discusses the theoretical and experiential influences of the author's intervention method, the actual social work process and the author's evaluation of the effectiveness of his intervention approach.

Keywords:   social work, family, social services, financial support, reactive behaviour
