Case One
Emma, a 17-year-old Latina high school student, walked into the mental health center where you are doing your internship. You are working on the emergency team, so she is referred to you as a walk-in client. Emma is tearful, shaking, and barely holding it together. Through her sobbing, she tells you she was raped the night before by a boy at a party. She did not know his name. Emma has not told anyone, especially her parent who she describes as being of strict Catholic faith. She is terrified they will blame her because she snuck out of the house after midnight. Emma refuses to go to the police, hospital, school, or home. She states, “I’d rather be dead than have my parents find out.” She appears immobilized.

Case Two
Jamar is a 45-year-old African American man who is self-referred to the agency in which you work. The intake paperwork indicates he is seeking psychotherapy to address several life issues, yet his concerns seem vague. The intake worker indicated Jamar reported “feeling depressed and anxious” about life and did not have “anyone in his life to talk to about this stuff.” In the first session, Jamar vocalizes he is uncertain about being in counseling but does not know where else to go. Over and over he says he feels like he is going to burst. He seems listless and does not identify a particular stressor but agrees to come back for a second session. In the second session, Jamar says he just must tell you something. He asks you not to look at him for a few minutes and during this time. Jamar discloses he has been having feelings he does not understand. He feels confused and ashamed about an encounter he had with another man at work three weeks ago. Jamar said he struggled in the past with an attraction to men and had gone to a few gay bars. But through his faith, prayer, and family counseling at his church he was able to overcome those feelings and focus on dating women. Jamar said he thought God had cured him, but last week, in a meeting, Micah winked at Jamar. Jamar recalled feeling immediately drawn to Micah but since last week has avoided contact with him. Jamar said all he can think about is Micah and has been fantasizing about a life with Micah. Jamar asks you what you can do to cure him of his homosexuality.
