Lecture Five: Video: You're Not Splitting up my Family


No notes for this week, of course, but a really interesting and unique documentary. It charts the story of a family: a father, his mother, and his two twin sons. The son's mother had died 4 years prior to the start of the film, which looks at the various interventions made into the two sons lives, mainly by social services.  This is interesting, but what I would like you to think about, and chart in some way, is the way the two boys move from one intervention to another, how their personal relationships change and affect them, and increasingly from one form of problematic behaviour to another. What are the influences on their lives (good and bad): could anything have been done differently for them: what were there own roles in determining the pathways they took as they grew up?
