Internship in social work and psychology:

One day a crying child arrived at our school, he was 6 years old, we did not understand what was happening to him, he was complaining of a shoulder pain, we worried we decided to call the mother by phone and ask her permission to take her to a clinic. After some x-ray exams, we learned what had happened to him as a “clavicle fissure” as it opened up. This was a question that was in our thoughts, when we explained to the mother what the doctor had told us, she began to cry inconsolably, it is there that we understood what had happened. The mother told us that the child a day earlier would have done a mischief and she, without measuring the force, hit him, told me that he did not want to hurt her, I do not know what he was thinking. She told us that 4 months ago that her husband left the house and abandoned them since then she has to work and take care of her two children that she could not do everything and that she suffered from family violence.

From that moment we knew that it was very important to give emotional support to mothers and children.
