Helping Skills Case Study – Susan
Susan is a 28-year-old single mother. Her husband left Susan when her son, Thomas, was two years old. Thomas is now twelve years old and has been getting in trouble at home and school. Thomas is getting sent to the principal’s office repeatedly, and when he is home he refuses to complete his homework. Sometimes, Thomas refuses to go to school at all. Susan is overwhelmed and is not sure what to do. Thomas blames her for “scaring” his father away. Susan often finds herself crying and depressed. She has tried disciplining Thomas, but nothing seems to work. She does not know who, or where, to turn for help.
