 1. Psychologist in Private Practice:


Client #1: Charles is a 28-year-old, married, father of a 2 year old and a 6 month old infant

Chief Complaint: "I just can't seem to be happy with anything anymore. I'm miserable and I'm making everybody around me miserable."

Historical considerations: Charles has been married for five years. He always expressed reservations about having children but went along with his wife’s desires to do so because he wanted nothing more than to make her happy. Since the birth of his children, Charles has had the added pressure of losing his previous job in sales and has had to settle for a job with much lower pay. Charles has also begun to drink more and has engaged in some marijuana use.

Client #2: Sabrina is a 41-year-old, recently divorced female with no children and high school education

Chief Complaint: "No matter what I do, I cannot relax, I am always stressing out about something. I feel like I'm going crazy."

Historical considerations: Sabrina was previously married to her high school sweetheart for 20 years. Sabrina was diagnosed with fertility problems at a young age and was receiving fertility for the past 15 years in an effort to become pregnant. About a year ago, Sabrina’s husband informed her that he was having an affair with another woman from work and wanted a divorce. Sabrina had never attended college but had enrolled in an effort to advance to a higher position within her workplace. Sabrina has had difficulty since the divorce became official 3 months ago and has been struggling to maintain passing grades in school and perform within expectations at work.

2. School Psychologist

Client #1: Samuel is a 7-year-old second-grader from intact family that recently moved into the school district .

Referral Problems: academic difficulties related to reading and writing, social difficulties with peers

Historical considerations: Samuel and his family moved to a city that was 400 miles away from their original home, as his father’s job relocated to another state. Samuel had close relationships with his peers, most of whom he knew from an early age. Samuel’s previous school was much smaller and had a lot of academic resources and opportunities for more personalized instruction, which helped him because he always struggled with academics due to learning disabilities. Samuel’s current school is one of the largest in the state and has student from significantly more diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds.

Client #2: Dave is a 17 -year-old high school student

Referral Problems: failing grades, refused to follow course sequences, considering dropping out

Historical considerations: Dave was previously an active student who excelled in school and participated in sports. Dave’s mother was tragically killed in a car accident two years ago. Since this time, Dave’s father has re-married and has added three younger children (ages 7, 9, and 10) from his wife’s prior marriage to the family dynamic. There has been a drastic change in Dave’s behavior over the past six months, as he has begun to hang out with friends that are unfamiliar to the family, has been truant from school, and is always tired from coming in late.
