Family system theory it explains why family act the way that they do in different situations. This theory is typically used in family counseling and therapy; much can be learned from examining it in the context of early childhood settings. Family systems theory has been used in trying to understand problems of students in school settings (Sawatzky, Eckert, & Ryan 1993; Widerman & Widerman 1995; Kraus 1998; Van Velsor & Cox 2000).

Attachment Theory Among Children with Developmental Disabilities Introduction Experiences in early life play an influential role on individual differences that develop later in life. These early life experiences consist of transactional relationships, through which individuals are interacting and maintaining life-long ties. Transactional relationships are developed and understood through the caregiver relationship that an individual has developed in the first few years of life (Austrian, 2008, p.365). This relationship being formed and resulting in a main attachment with primary caregivers, such as a mother or father (Austrian, 2008, p.365). Some individuals, such as those with developmental disabilities, may not be given the same opportunities as typical individuals.
Diagnosis of developmental disabilities, early intervention priorities, educational programs, services for the young exceptional learner, transitional programs, and procedures for young students with disabilities. People with developmental disabilities display some of the following characteristics. The disability is some form of developmental delay in being dependent, learning, mobility, self-care, self-direction, mobility, or economic self-sufficiency (Developmental disability, 2009). Forms of developmental disabilities are mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism, and Down syndrome. Causes may be from injuries to the brain, problems with nutrition, growth problems, misusing drugs during pregnancy, and child abuse (Developmental disability, 2009).
I will also discuss what life story work is and how life story work can be beneficial in developing a child’s understanding a sense of self. The importance life experiences have on a child’s attachments and what is meant by attachments and how they form and vary. The importance of the care workers role in all of these points will also be discussed and how they can support children to develop a sense of self. It’s important to understand what is meant by identity. Identity can be seen superficially as a name or a date of birth of an individual, a sense of formally providing evidence of who you are.

Date: 15th December, 2011 Working with Children, Families and Carers The purpose of this assignment is to critically discuss the system surrounding resistant families and how social work practice has been evolved to cope with the barriers faced by social workers and other professionals in every day practice with resistant families. The assignment will try to navigate the reader through many different skills developed, social work theories, policy and legislation guidelines and finally, this assignment will try to overview the actions which could be taken throughout an intervention with a resistant family. The main area of focus will reflect upon the document Effective practice to protect children living in ‘highly resistant’ families. (C4EO, 2010). It is essential that the term 'Highly Resistant' is defined at this stage as it will give the reader an understanding of its true meaning to professionals involved with working with this group.

Running head: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CORRELATES TO BEHAVIORAL Domestic Violence Correlates to Behavioral Problems in Children Mary L. Terry Liberty University Abstract This study seeks to better understand how the victimization of children and/or their loved ones affects their behavior. Questionnaires will be sent to will be mailed to each single-mother family with a child in the local elementary school district in order to ascertain whether or not they would be interested in participating in the study. General information regarding age and ethnicity will be obtained, along with whether or not they would be interested in participating in the study. Research will be limited to 75 family groups using face to face interviews and the administration of several questionnaires to the mother and the child in the study. This study should help the researcher to better understand the implications domestic violence has on behavioral problems in children and the time to intervene in order to lessen behavioral problems.
For example a promotion at the place of work, may affect the way parents will relate with their child in the event that there is increased responsibilities which might take away time spent with a child (Allen, 2009). Macrosystems is the culture in which individuals live. It includes socioeconomic status, poverty and ethnicity. A parent’s place of work and school where the child learns is also part of this culture. Members share a common identity, values and heritage.
The work of Bowlby suggested that attachment is innate. He also emphasised on the importance of caregiver sensitivity and the internal working model leading onto the continuity hypothesis. The internal working model suggests that as infants, we internalise a template of what to expect from relationships using our primary attachment figure. This then develops to an attachment type as found by Mary Ainsworth. The effect on adult relationships of these attachment types developed as a child however was initially investigated by Shaver and Hazer who put out a questionnaire in a newspaper that questioned couples about their childhood experiences (which would determine attachment type as a child) and their current relationships.
