Ms. Sue,

I have to do a case study this weekend, before I start I would like to find some examples so I could start doing my reading.

Jennifer is a 29-year-old administrative assistant married to Antonio, an Italian engineer, whom Jennifer met four years earlier while on a business trip for her marketing company. The couple now lives in Nebraska, where Antonio works for the county's transportation department and Jennifer commutes an hour each way to her marketing office. They have been trying to start a family for over a year. Eight months ago, Jennifer miscarried in her second month of pregnancy. Antonio's parents love Jennifer and often ask her if she is expecting again, hoping to encourage her to focus on her next baby. Jennifer's mother passed away two years ago and her father's health is rapidly deteriorating. Jennifer faces the probability of placing her father in a skilled nursing care facility within the next few months, against his wishes

Case Study #2

Michael is a 40-year-old airline pilot who has recently begun to experience chest pains. The chest pains began when Michael signed his final divorce papers, ending his 15-year marriage. He fought for joint custody of his two children, ages 12 and 10, but although he wants to be with them more frequently, he only sees them every two weeks. This schedule is, in great part, a result of his employer's announcement that budget constraints would result in layoffs. Michael worries that without his job he will be unable to support his children and lose the new townhouse that he purchased. Michael's chest pains are becoming more frequent and he fears that he may be dying.

    Ms. Sue,

    Do you have any other sources beside this one. because those case studies are related to stress. Please let me know.

    Rose, I'm not sure what you want. Your examples above are related to stress.

    What kind of case study do you need?

  • psy - need some info. -

    something that will give me an insight on the ones I had sent to you.

  • psy - need some info. -

    Those are case studies. They explain a situation and the stress placed on the individuals by both internal and external forces.

    Do you need to explore ways to reduce their stress? Jennifer might consider moving closer to her work or getting a part time job without the long commute. Michael should see a doctor immediately.

    Do you need to make up a case study -- following the pattern of those above? Think of people you know that have similar stresses.

    Ms. Sue,

    I will need examples on solution , coping method, what defensive coping method could they use etc.

  • psy - need some info. -

    I'll stand by my original suggestions. Jennifer might consider changing jobs or perhaps working only three days a week in the office. Michael needs to see a doctor about his heart problems immediately. I sure don't want an airline pilot who might have a heart attack while he's flying MY plane.

    You can also get ideas from some of these sites.

  • psy - need some info. -

    In any case of a possible physical problem, the first step is to get it checked out by a medical doctor. Michael's heart problems MAY be caused by stress, but no one will know until he's been evaluated medically.

    Thanks a lot Ms. Sue will check with you tomorrow have a good night.

    You're welcome, Rose. You have a good evening -- and a good day tomorrow. See you then.
