LEGITIMATING THE REJECTING OF YOUR CHILD IN A SOCIAL WORK MEETING 41 38 TM: That sounds like a double message to me. ) it is. ) She raises again the possibility of Jane returning home, although the enquiry is qualified, ‘at one level’ (line 4). She appeals to the early identity of the ‘mother as a cooperative client’ willing to ‘do some work’ (line 5). These are preferred identities, ignoring the mother’s ‘offering but not wanting’ position. Mrs Jones initially responds to this invitation by appearing to agree with these preferred identities (lines 6–8).

The interviewer’s agreement is followed by a positive comment on Anne, using a contrast device, ‘don’t get me wrong’ (line 11). It might be suggested that such a ‘caring’ contrast appears here to tone down the previous description, which had ended with a highly derogatory formulation of Anne as an object ‘that’ (line 9). CARING BUT NOT COPING: FASHIONING A LEGITIMATE PARENT IDENTITY 53 Similarly, in the final exchange before the recorder is switched off, the most explicit ‘caring’ formulation is provided, following claims that single parents can give more time to their children.

Also like Anna, future obligations are defined in terms of a limited but clear contact. In both cases, identities of motherhood are built on top of one another, with new damaged identities established which fit better with the social work context. Conclusion In comparing these two encounters, the atmosphere is different. In Anna’s meeting emotions are raw with tears and recrimination. In Mrs Jones’s meeting there is laughter and little explicit blaming. However, there are surprisingly important similarities in process, topic and negotiation, suggesting shared notions of motherhood and rejection.
