Students will review two cases and respond to the following questions applying course readings and additional references from reliable resources to have well-rounded content.
Case 1: Tony
Tony is a 36-year-old female. She has had a partner for the past 3 years and has three children (ages 18, 10, and 2), two of whom are from a previous relationship. During her intake interview, she presented herself as clean, meticulously dressed and was overweight. She fidgeted constantly with her clothes and picked at her fingernails. She avoided eye contact during the session. She recently graduated from college. Tony reported general dissatisfaction with her life. She stated that her life is uneventful and predictable and she feels some panic over reaching her late 30s. For the past 2 years she has had a range of psychosomatic complaints, including sleep disturbance, anxiety, dizziness, heart palpitations, and headaches. Tony complained that she cries easily over trivial matters, often feels depressed, and has gained weight recently due to her worries.
Case 2: Mia
Mia is a 12-year-old female who was referred by her teacher for evaluation of her social avoidant behavior and emotional outbursts. Mia lives with her mother and younger brother. She has been refusing to participate in class activities and fails to follow directions. Her teachers reported that Mia has a tendency to isolate herself from others in the class and refuses to participate in any class activity. Her mother indicated that other children make fun of Mia. Her mother is very reluctant to have Mia assessed, and stated that she does not want any “test telling her that her daughter is crazy.”
