Case Study
Janine was hospitalized as an adolescent for depression and mood disorders. Her hospitalization was the result of her cutting a finger, which she says was in response to her mother not allowing her to stay out late with her friends. In school with her teachers and at home with her parents, her behavior may be characterized as oppositional defiant. This behavior was also exhibited with hospital staff. Upon her release from the hospital, the family was assigned to the caseload as an in-home social worker.
The father’s mother also lives with the family. She and Janine are close, or “in cahoots, which is the way Janine’s mother described their relationship.
According to Janine’s mother, the grandmother,
“never holds Janine accountable for anything.” The father rejects the mother’s perception and counters that the relationship between Janine and her is not the problem. Instead, he sees his wife as a product of her own “authoritarian, rigid upbringing, in a household with silly rules. Both parents are reluctant to talk about Janine’s hospitalization.
They assert, “We need to put this episode behind us and move on.” Janine agrees. According to her, the finger incident was a stupid thing to do, and she would like to return to school and be with her class.

Review the fictitious case study below. Based on this scenario, complete the following:
Document a stressor or problem the client discussed in the scenario.
Using CBT as your evidence-based practice model, plan one intervention that could be used to help your client with her stressor.
Clearly articulate why you chose this particular intervention and the CBT concept(s) that support your choice.
Case Study:
Hannah Johnson is a 24-year-old Caucasian female who was referred to you for outpatient therapy by her primary care physician. Hannah sought treatment from her physician for symptoms of depression and anxiety following an intense argument with her boyfriend of 6 months, which caused him to break-up with her. Hannah informed her physician that she has been having panic attacks daily for the last five days since the break-up. She also stated that she had called into work “sick” each day because she had no motivation, felt “hopeless,” had insomnia nightly, and could not stop crying. Hannah denied feeling suicidal. Hannah asked her physician for medication to “make the pain go away.” Her physician prescribed her seven pills of .5mg Xanax to take at night, as needed, with no refills. She was told by her physician that what she really needed was therapy to help her address her depression and anxiety and that a quick fix from a medication would not be a long-term solution.
Her physician had seen her request medication numerous times “to make the pain go away” when she was facing the ending of a relationship. At her intake session with you, Hannah disclosed that she had a history of failed romantic relationships and “hated” being single. She described herself as “a romantic” and “fell in love easily,” but her relationships never lasted more than six months. She described her past relationships as “exciting and intense at first” but full of drama as the excitement wore off. She also stated she felt extremely anxious, abandoned, and depressed when her relationships ended. Hannah stated that her ex-boyfriends always ended the relationships stating she was “too needy.” She said she “felt like a failure” and wanted to know “what is wrong with me? Why can’t I keep a boyfriend?”
Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included. Provide in-text citations.
Length: 3 pages, not including title and reference pages
