The gaps and the contradictions from my framework to my video. In my framework, I talk about working in a holistic way using Te Whare Tapa Wha model. However, in the role- play I did not work with the client in a holistic way. Although, it was very person centred as the client was choosing what she felt was important. I also talk about working from a strengths based perspective, which I felt like at times during the role- play I did very well. However, I feel like overall I was not working consistently from a strengths based perspective, especially when we were discussing the situation with her partner. I feel as though this was because we discussed our role- play just before we started filming and I have not worked with domestic violence before so I was unsure about what I should say.

How did I influence the situation through my presence, actions, preconceptions, or assumptions, other people 's perceptions of me, my physical well-being on the day? What words or language patters have I used? What do these indicate about the way I am constructing the situation? In addition, what assumptions are implicit in my account and where do they come from? The final part of the essay looked at a critique about how I have considered the ethical and social justice issues surrounding the role-play such as domestic violence and custody issues.
