Posted by needhelp on Friday, February 6, 2009 at 11:22pm.

I only need some pointers!!!!!!

I have an assignment in my class and I have to Outline, in a paper, the main points that a therapist might cover in a counseling session to help each individual for each scenario.

Here are the scenarios! Remember, I only need help.... I do not want my work done for me!
Anna, an adolescent girl, is very much in love with her boyfriend who is three years
older than she. He is putting a lot of pressure on her to have sex. At the same time,
she is anxious about her parentsí attitude towards her boyfriend. Her mother
constantly warns her about dating an older boy and assumes that he intends on
taking advantage of her.

∑ In your paper, be sure that the therapist coaches Anna on the sexual decisionmaking
process, including addressing her feelings and recommendations related
to her motherís anxiety.

Tom and Susan are an elderly couple. Tom has been retired for several years, Susan
is more recently retired. She has shown a renewed interest in sexual activity. Tom
has not reciprocated Susanís interest as he is anxious about his sexual ability at this
∑ In your paper, be sure that the therapist addresses the physical and
psychological changes that affect sexuality at this point in Tom and Susanís life.

Bill has been paralyzed from the waist down since he was a child. He is involved in a
romantic relationship and wishes to be intimate with his partner but is unsure how to
express his interest. Bill becomes very nervous and uncomfortable when talking
about this subject.
∑ In your paper, be sure that the therapist addresses Billís feelings and offers him
information on sexuality and his disability.

If you have some suggestions as far as what I could point out, that would be great too!
