Sample: Case study


Since approximately 13 years ago, Syra and Sam have been together and have had 4 kids together. Multi-lingual Sam was born abroad; he didn't finish high school; he speaks many languages, including English. He's also managed small companies on occasion. In addition to being born in Australia, Syra has a degree from a university and operates her own company. Both were pursuing their formal training when they encountered in the home nation of Sam's wife, Syra. Sam was granted a spousal visa and they were married within a year. It is Syra with her new partner who are now caring for the children at a house they own. Sam's contact with the younger kid is regulated by Family Court rules. The three older kids have decreased any contact.

He was kind and quiet, but yet deeply devoted to his spiritual ideas, when Syra first met him. Over the years, he insisted that his children adhere to a rigid daily worship ritual. At first, Syra was captivated by Sam's faith and commitment to the cause. He started visiting places of worship after they arrived in Australia. The asceticism and volunteerism led him to become extremely active in his new religious group. When she wasn't caring for her small children, Syra had three additional children over a period of six years, and worked full-time. A termination was not an option for Sam because he thought it would weaken his manhood. Paradoxically, it was the women from the religious community that encouraged Syra to seek contraceptives.

There was a lot of friction between Syra and Sam over a number of topics. Sam exerted a great degree of control over Syra and the children's everyday life. The children are required to do minutes of prayer services in the afternoons and evenings, which decided to make them tired for school and then behind with their schoolwork. In many cases, the Sam would prescribe how prayers must be conducted, only to alter the regulations without explanation. Irfan would beat the youngsters in the face or swing the children around on one arm if they did not follow the instructions properly. Syra claims that although she was exposed to some physical abuse, it was the children who suffered the most.

Sam had demanded that Syra attend worship with him while she was significantly pregnant with their second child. Syra was weary and asked if she should leave. Angry with her, Sam shoved her onto the railroad tracks. A frightened Syra travelled miles to a family member's home and spent the night there, where she remained for the night. Then, when Syra returned home after the birth of their youngest child, a friend offered to watch the other children so that Syra and Sam could have a vacation from taking care of the younger ones. Sam refused, and Syra questioned him about his reasons for refusing to participate. Several times he smacked her across the face while she was holding the infant, and he warned her not to challenge his authority in front of the children in particular.

Literature review:

In this case study the issue of intimate partner violence and domestic violence has been discussed with detail. This case study is related to syra and her communication with Sam. Sam is a regid partner who has his own terms and conditions. Their relationship became more difficult, and she eventually shut off entirely. After Sam barred Syra's relatives from the house because they didn't comply to the norms of his religion, Syra grew more isolated. Syra, who was a bridesmaid, was not allowed to attend a significant family wedding because Sam would not let the children to go. It was difficult for Syra to make acquaintances outside of the religious group, and she did not think she should.

In spite of having separate bank accounts, Syra and Sam pooled their money. Although Sam made little or no money, Syra was the main breadwinner for her family. As a result, Syra was constantly chastised for even small expenditures. These excursions were costly and took several months to save up for, but Sam persisted on taking them. With small children, and particularly while pregnant, Syra found these visits to be upsetting, since the housing conditions were low and public places were usually dangerous. Syra and the children were on one of these excursions when they saw an event that was especially upsetting to them. He thought that his younger relative had violated a holy rite and punished him by burning an impression deep into his palm to remind him of the transgression. Family members watched in horror. A similar penalty has been threatened every time Sam believes his own children to be disobedient. It took Syra as well as the children a while to come to grips with the fact that they would be murdered. Her sister had told her that when she would come one day, they would all have been dead and she would be left alone.

Syra had attempted to quit the partnership twice before the ultimate breakup. As part of the local family violence support service, shelter accommodation was arranged. Thereafter Syra consulted an attorney with the purpose of obtaining an order of protection, as well as a psychologist in order to attempt to identify and comprehend her experiences over the previous several years. From the refuge and these experts, Syra got crucial assistance. Sam came with his lawyer and supporters from the religious community on the first day of the hearing. It was his denial of any domestic violence that led him to agree to a two-year protection order, without admitting anything. She felt secure in the courtroom and was shielded from Sam or his lawyer's direct approach. Her main concern was how Sam would respond to her taking the children away from him.

Her lawyer arranged for Syra to mediate over the phone, in an attempt to find a solution for the children, with Sam's help. Sam disputed all of the facts behind the breakup of the relationship, thus this procedure was a failure. Syra filed a complaint with the Family Court in the end. A psychologist was contacted to determine the children's desires. As they were in their early to mid-teens, the three elder children made it plain that they did n't like seeing their dad. They were certain that they did not even want him. court granted Syra the right to live in the United States and Sam contact with the younger kid only once every two weeks and then overnight contact. In order to keep Sam informed about the children, Syra was obliged to email him regularly. A single phone call had to be avoided. When it comes to Sam's conduct, Syra thinks that a psychologist might uncover significant dangers.

Separation and Family Court orders took three years. Ivonne and her children were housed in different places after they left the shelter, and sought out numerous agencies for financial, legal, and emotional assistance. A modification in handover arrangements was required for the youngest kid, who, by that point, was sleeping with Sam at night. A cousin of Sam's once told Syra that Sam and the youngest kid had been sobbing for hours together. In spite of her knowledge, Syra felt extremely worried when the agreed-upon handover time passed. Children were very worried about what Sam would do when he returned them to their new home, resulting in one of them requiring substantial therapy assistance. Syra sees how deeply Sam's abuse has impacted the three older children.

In order to get the original contact orders restored, Syra is seeking help from her lawyer. She thinks that allowing overnight contact may be harmful to the youngest kid. This means he has no touch with the kid. She thinks they get along well, and Sam considers the kid to be his favourite.

Unresolved property issues persist. Although the couple has property and money in Sam's native nation, Syra does not have enough money for legal action that would allow them to settle their assets. As a result, she is no longer eligible for legal aid funds and is unable to privately finance any future proceedings. After many years of abuse, Syra is in a new relationship that she finds fulfilling. She has learned to be wary, though, and to be vigilant for any indications of abuse she may have been exposed to for years. They are developing a company together, while also caring for Syra's four children, who are under their care. She thinks she and the children have made it during the worst of their suffering, but she thinks there will always be a chance that Sam may lose his temper.

Crisis management:

In this area we will discuss how the crisis related to domestic violence would be managed.

Cognitive behavioral therapy on the mechanics of and health issues for abusive relationships should be included in treatment interventions with victims of child violence. As a general rule, information is given on: the cycle of violence (e.g. the honeymoon period; building tension and eruption of violence); and the increase in the amount and duration of violent acts over time.

Abusive dating relationships include the use of power and control (e.g., isolation, jealousy and as well as possessiveness)

A stressful incident may lead to psychological and emotional problems. In the therapy of DV clients, identifying, confronting, and changing skewed cognitions and beliefs may be helpful. Women who have been abused typically acquire three types of erroneous ideas, according to Douglas and Strom (1988, referenced by Webb, 1992).

Before being engaged with an abusive relationship, the client may have had certain views (i.e., women are inferior to men)

As a result of the abuse, certain beliefs are formed (i.e., he wouldn’t hit me if I were a better partner)

I'm a syra - I can't make it on my own. Many victims of domestic abuse may benefit from training in skills and coping mechanisms. Some clients may have established methods of interacting with others that limit conflict, which may not be in the client's best interests. Communication, decision-making and problem-solving abilities are among the talents that may be acquired.

Dependent upon findings of the assessment as well as the course of treatment, additional therapies may be added to address particular symptoms such as post - traumatic stress disorder.

When it comes to alleviating guilt and shame emotions, exercising social skills and building trust in others, group therapy may be beneficial. There are many different types of groups that may be provided, from support groups to trauma-focused therapy.

Most therapies intended for domestic abuse victims are ineffective (Kantor & Jasinski, 1998). Domestic abuse victims have been the subjects of very few outcome studies. To establish if the treatments given are suitable and successful in improving safety and reducing post-traumatic symptoms, additional case studies, experimental designs, and long-term studies are needed.

While domestic abuse reporting laws and regulations continue to grow in popularity, clinicians and researchers who treat domestic violence victims and their children should be ready to handle with numerous ethical issues. A professional evaluating child abuse in this group has an unique difficulty because of the obligation to report. However, physicians and investigators should really be aware of the local regulations regulating their obligation to report (Azar, 1992). Depending on the jurisdiction, scientists may be excused from reporting.

Locale-specific definitions of childhood abuse may also differ. For example, exposing children to marital violence is considered emotional abuse in certain jurisdictions. A failure to protect finding may also be pursued in other jurisdictions. As important as it is to provide a safe environment for young children, clinicians should also be aware of the problems that the violent offender, older victim, as well as worker may have to deal with (breaking confidentiality, impediments to building rapport). Practitioners who discover allegations of abuse must be prepared to react in a professional and ethical manner, according to the report.

Sample 2:


This case study is aimed to help Managers to understand the leadership roles and function in the future. It helps us to understand the function of organizations and interrelation with people. It happens like Girish Sharma, a State Administrative Officer in clarion, calls from his mentor to take on the challenge of a new posting. It requires him to leave the mantle of the administrative officer and work in the managerial capacity for the benefits of the rural poor. This case study calculates the entire journey, with the finest of details, in which both the chief and the organization undergo transition and transformation.


(August, 2004)It was a different practice for Girish as it was a committee this was altogether different as It was a unique form of project and deputation posting being funded by the World Bank. The journey started when he reached Narsinghpur for the office, and there was no protocol, even not a single vehicle to reach his destination. The office was on rent, and he had never faced such experience ever. On the first day, he met with Chauvin, a district finance manager who informed me that he was on deputation posting and belonged to accounts services and met with Dipanker Chakravarty, who told him that his designation was a district task manager. It was how miserable the condition was that there was no peon in the office. DFM told him that the Narsinghpur project never had full-time DPM since the start of the project in the district since 2001-02. The first day the experience left him in a state of shock and disappointment.


 After a long assessment, he decided to accept the challenge and having long pondering with DPM and DFM. He came out with a solution. He fixed an urgent meeting with PFT, and they will scrutinize the projects. They will examine the plans. This not only resulted in clearing huge backlog but cross-learning across PFT was also thegreat outcome.When he paid to visit with the World Bank team at the time of his transfer, all crew was so impressed that it recommended fur project extension for another 5 years for the entire state.
