Marriage & Family Life
Part 1) You are required to observe the interaction between a parent and child (they should not be aware that they are being observed). Describe what you observe and explain whether the interaction between parent/child models the Dominant or Non-Violent Paradigm. Be specific in your description and explanation of the interaction by providing examples of what is taking place and how it is related to either paradigm. See Ch. 12 PPT.
Part 2) Additionally, based on what you have read and has been discussed in lecture, how might childhood maltreatment/abuse affect the physical/cognitive/social development of the child? In your response, explain what specific changes the child is experiencing (developmental changes – physical/cognitive/social) that might be threatened (requires a little research).
