I watched a social worker trying to "save" a woman from a domestic violence situation. It was disturbing to say the least.
I'm watching a fellow staff member get Scapegoated. You can tell she was the Hero of her family of origin and this sudden shift in roles is rocking her world.
A recent article on the Child Psychology Research Blog, "ADHD Medications and School Performance" cites a research study which shows that "medication alone may not have a significant impact on" the childrens' school functioning.
Another possible dynamic of a family system with a scapegoat role is that of perfection and blaming.
