CASE STUDY Christopher aged 12 (White UK), Amy aged 8 (dual heritage Caribbean/White UK) and Kerry…




Christopher aged 12 (White UK), Amy aged 8 (dual heritage Caribbean/White UK) and Kerry aged 3(dual heritage Caribbean/White UK) have been removed from their mother (White UK) who is an alcoholic and who attacked Christopher in a drunken rage after Amy disclosed sexual interference by him.

The children do not have the same father and Kerry’s father, Andy (UK born Caribbean) recently left the family home after social services discovered he has sexual offences against children. (This was brought to light when Andy’s other child Mary aged 14 went to social services and informed them about her father and abuse in the family. This is the basis of the previous task above). Their maternal grandfather (White UK), is also a sex offender and it is suspected that he has had unsupervised contact with the children. The maternal grandmother (White Irish), suffered from psychotic illness throughout her life and is currently in hospital.

Amy and Kerry are also displaying sexualised behaviour and Christopher is vey aggressive. He has bitten the foster carer and has been excluded from school for hitting other children and sexual interference with another child.

Amy and Christopher are not doing well in school in any event. They are not learning and are shunned by the other children. The foster care finds faeces about the house and suspects it is Christopher, who has also been discovered hording food in his bedroom.

Kerry is showing signs of developmental delay. She does not give eye contact, she head bangs and does not like to be touched. She was extremely distraught to be removed from her mother and absolutely will not accept comfort from the foster carer, but occasionally will do so from Christopher and Amy.
