Hello, I am struggling in my class this week with this assignment. Can anyone assist me?
A) Carly, a child development specialist in the program, has shared some concerns based on her first visit to a family: "I don't know for sure, but from what I observed today, I think the mother may be depressed. She was lying on the couch the entire time I was there and she seemed both withdrawn and sad. I asked her how she was doing, and she said, 'Not so good.' When I asked her how long she had been feeling that way, she said, 'A long time.'"
What would you suggest to Carly in terms of her future work with Randy and his mother?
B)This news was surprising to you because the family had been receiving occupational services for the past few months from Sally-Anne, another specialist in the program. When you ask Sally-Anne, she responds, "Yes, the mom has seemed really down. But I didn't want to ask. It felt like prying especially since I am there to work with Randy [a 10-month-old with cerebral palsy]."
What strategies would you use to work with Sally-Anne to ensure effective partnering with families in support of infant/toddler mental health?
