You have three points of analysis of one abuse case: the abuser’s self-report, the forensic psychologist’s evaluation, and a video of an actual instance of abuse.

In a post to the discussion board, answer these questions:
After reading the documents, what were your assumptions about the case and the father?
How did those assumptions change after watching the video?
Considering all the evidence you’ve watched and read, what conclusions can you draw about the usefulness of self-reporting in parental evaluations?

When you respond to classmates’ posts, discuss how your analysis of the case differed from your classmates and why (including if you drew different conclusions from the same information).
