Students are given a hypothetical case study of a family which is based on practice experience. Random social care themes such as poverty, addiction and attachment problems are considered. Students work in groups of 4/5. They must do a group report of the case study. They must develop a risk assessment and an intervention plan. They must also prepare an individual report to inform the tutor what they have learnt individually. Traditionally we give them the knowledge to solve problems; this approach gives them the problem to help develop the knowledge.
