Case study that I have chosen:
Julie is a 42-year-old female who is reporting headaches, difficulty sleeping, and has developed several viral infections over the last few months. She has been to see her regular doctor who suggested she talk to a counselor. Julie reports high levels of stress at her job. Her department is understaffed and operating under tight deadlines. Julie has been working extra hours to help meet those deadlines. At home, Julie finds herself exhausted and fighting with her husband. Her children, ages 9, 7, and 3 have begun acting out and she reports that she is shorter-tempered with them than usual. Julie’s mother is 79 and fell while getting the mail resulting in a broken hip. While she is out of the hospital, she needs rides to physical therapy and assistance around her house.
