MHF Module: Helping Skills Case Study Worksheet
Read the following case study about Susan:
Susan is a 28-year-old single mother, whose husband left her when her son, Thomas, was 2 years old. Thomas is now 12 and has been getting in trouble at home and school. Thomas is getting sent to the principal’s office repeatedly, and when home, refuses to complete his homework. Sometimes Thomas refuses to attend school altogether. Susan is overwhelmed and unsure what to do. Thomas blames her for “scaring” his father away, and 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.
Consider a plan for how you can help Susan.
Refer to the University of Phoenix Material: “MHF Helping Skills in Mental Health Facilitation” presentation as you consider your plan to help Susan.
Answer the following questions about a potential plan for Susan. Each response should be between 100 to 300 words in length. Include citations in your response as appropriate.
