Assessment Task 5:Case Study Written questionsCase studyThe following task will be based on a case study scenario. You will need to answer the following questions based on this scenario and how it applies to your role within the community services context.RAMZI, MENA AND AHLIAMena (32 years) has recently been referred to your organisation for assessment by her GP, who is concernedabout her mental health. Her husband, Ramzi (42 years), migrated to Australia from Egypt 10 years ago. Ramzi had been working as a draughtsman in an engineering office until six months ago, when on his way to work, he was hit by a car and suffered significant brain injuries. He is in the local rehabilitation hospital but isunlikely to regain many of his capacities. The long-term prognosis is that he will require high level care for the rest of his life. Mena has only been in Australia for five years (she is also from Egypt) and speaks very little English. Her parents, as well as Ramzi’s, are still in Egypt.Their four year old daughter, Ahlia, was diagnosed with autism a couple of years ago and is showing signs of significant behavioural issues. Ramzi was better able to care for Ahlia as he had the physical strength to control her when she had tantrums and the patience to settle her. He was also able to communicate with thetherapist working with Ahlia and was able to follow through on any exercises she set for them.Since Ramzi’s accident, Mena’s own health has deteriorated and she has recently started taking anti-depressants. Ahlia’s therapist has contacted the child protection agency stating that Mena appears to not be coping with Ahlia. She reports that there is bruising on Ahlia’s arms and that Ahlia’s condition has regressed, making her very difficult for Mena to manage her.Question 1:You are preparing to assess Mena, in order to decide on what treatment and services will be most useful for her. (When answering the following questions, you will need to bear in mind the role that your organisation’s policies and procedures will play in assessing clients.)A.
