  This paper considers that the interpretation of the first scenario will be approached on the assumption that the service users (parents) are not drug miss users. Nevertheless, children have been neglected by their parents. The scenario will be addressed following the same framework as the above five sequential phases used in task-centered practice interventions as found relevant to solve Dan’ s, Jo’ s and their parents’ problems. This illustration will focus on solving three family issues. It is evident that the whole family is suffering due to poverty. The situation is chaotic, and the Richmond couples have developed a kind of reluctance towards making the situation any better, neither for their children nor for themselves.

The children act of 1989 comes in to play here as the Richmond children are in need as they are unable to maintain reasonable standards of health (Opsi 2009). Looking at the Richmond children it is clear that they have not been provided with basic education, principles, and norms. Thus they have grown up in unfavorable conditions in regard to what is understood to be good for the growth and development of children (Children Act 1989, 1989 Chapter 41).

In the case of the Richmond couple, it is clear that the aspect of parental responsibility has not been fulfilled by either of the parents. Once a clear explanation had been provided from the social worker to the Richmond family members, the next step is to explain about the process of the intervention in a limited time, now that the children’ s problems have been explored and issues identified. The aim is to work in partnership to rank the problems; the first problem that needs a solution is about the children’ s misconduct at school.

The social worker in partnership with Richmond’ s family decides what tasks need to be performed in order for the family to establish a solution to the problems they are facing. The first task assigned is for the social worker who in agreement with Richmond’ s family will send a letter to the family’ s health visitor requesting an appointment with Richmond’ s family.
