This chapter presents a case study concerning the author's social work experience with the Reids family. It explains that the father, Darren, had physically assaulted his son for which he was charged with actual bodily harm and sentenced to two years probation. It also mentions that Paul was displaying troubled behaviour and the family was considering placing him in a boarding school. It discusses the use of the systemic thinking approach to the social work process and the author's evaluation of the effectiveness of his intervention method.
