Counsellor investigation with respect to 9 year old Prince who is recovering from maltreatment
Prince is a 9 year old child. Prince usually starts out with arguing about wanting to take a dozen pens to school. Prince would tell the teacher that his mother said it was good to carry a two dozen pens to school. The teacher was shocked, Prince seemed unbelievable.

The kids in the neighbour hood began to tease her and they pelted her with stones and she had scabs and bruises and blood all over her face and body.

In this case much of the physical violenc…
