The Dual Perspective
Case Example: The Dual Perspective
Based on the Case Study, “Hector and his Family” on page 27 in Chapter Two, discuss the following questions:
How does the “dual perspective” apply to Hector’s situation?
Identify a challenge and a strength that Hector may have, based on a dual perspective.
Also, identify a suggestion that might improve Hector’s situation (by building on his strength or using a resource from one of his dual environments).
Now consider Hector’s case from a “family systems perspective.”
What family rules or patterns could be operating here?
What would be your initial thoughts in trying to engage Hector’s parents into resolving this situation?
What evidence can you use to support your conceptualizations about this case?
