Topic 5: Canyon Case Study: Fifth Session

You have met with the Canyon family four times since the initial session. During this fifth session, you concur that some improvement has been made. There are also some new challenges.

After consulting with Anne’s obstetrician following the initial session, you both agree with the likelihood that Anne is suffering from Post-Partum Depression. Upon your recommendation, Anne was evaluated by a psychiatrist who confirmed the diagnosis. You learn that Anne is responding well to the prescribed medication, is exercising regularly, and taking part of the Mother’s Day Out program at church. Overall, Clark is pleased with her improvement, but he expresses concern with Anne’s new friendship with a young Mother, Rosita, whom she met at the church program.

Anne had invited Rosita and her baby, Carlos, over one evening for dinner with the family after the two had spent the day together. According to Anne, Lilly and Carlos are “best friends.” Anne said that the evening had gone exceptionally well. She reports that “Rosita and Cody even had a good time” and that they both seemed excited to learn they will be attending the same high school. You learn that Rosita is 17, lives with her mother, and has two younger twin brothers. Her sister, Maria, and Maria’s child, Ben, also live in the home, along with Rosita’s Abuela. Anne said that she was “completely shocked” at how upset Clark had gotten “for no reason at all” after they left. Clark attributes the argument to Anne “overreacting” to his suspicion that 6-month-old babies can be “best friends.” Anne reports that the argument escalated leaving her feeling defensive and especially hurt by Clark’s comment, “Cody can make his own friends; he doesn’t need yours.”

They also provide details surrounding the previous two sessions, which they had cancelled. Harvey suffered a massive heart attack and died three weeks ago. Since then, Daisy has been staying with Clark and Anne, too distraught to return to the home she and Harvey shared. Both agree that Cody’s mood has been increasingly sullen since being forced to temporarily surrender his bedroom for grieving Grandma. Anne describes Cody as being “selfish and insensitive” for complaining about being surrounded by “baby toys” due to having to share a room with two-year-old Max. Anne and Clark express concern that Cody seems amused at being able to elicit dramatic shrieks of “No! No! I not baby!” from Max, just by calling him “a baby.” Clark is exasperated with Max’s continued tantrums, especially given the numerous explanations he has given him regarding the intentionality behind his big brother’s antagonism. They ask if perhaps Cody might be “a psychopath?” Clark shares that Daisy’s unsolicited parenting advice contributes to the existing problems; he and Anne promote accountability and autonomy over fear and militant obedience.

The session ends with both parents being able to identify strengths of compassion and validate the importance of shared goals. The parents were provided information to increase their understanding of developmental norms and learn strategies to assist with transitional periods across the lifespan.
