Critical Thinking

This section is intended to allow us to integrate the training content into the lived experiences of families. Each of these critical thinking questions addresses one or more of the people in the Carlson, Choi, or Johnson families, and examines an aspect of their lives.

Take time to think about each of these questions, and think about responses from multiple stakeholders’ points of view. It may be helpful to go back and review sections of the curriculum, re-read the experiences of each family member, and engage in dialogue with community partners and co-workers.

  • In what ways do you see Clinton’s behavior instilling fear in LaTanya?

  • How do you see Bruce demonstrating a pattern of abusive behavior towards Peggy?

  • In what way do you see a pattern of ongoing abuse by Young toward Aimee? What tactics of power and control do you see?
