A Study in Critical Thinking: The Watson Family

The Watson Family

What you know:

A neighbour calls the local CAS and speaks with the intake worker. She has heard fighting and yelling throughout the day from her neighbours' home (the Watson Family) and has heard things crashing and children crying.


  • What further information is required from the neighbour who called CAS?
  • How long have the neighbours known the family?
  • What is their relationship to the family?
  • What questions could you ask to explore the family strengths? For example, what positives have the neighbours observed in the interaction between the children and parents?

Within what time frame do you respond?
