A client, who is a mother of three latency age children, is facing the breakup of her marriage. She is very concerned about how her children will respond, what steps she can take to minimize the disruption to their lives, and how she will manage financially with the reduced income. The social worker relates her own experience of divorce and the parenting issues which followed.
A social worker and client both agree to terminate services. After several years the worker sees the client at a shopping mall. The client offers to take the worker to the food court for lunch to show appreciation for all the help provided during their treatment sessions.
You have a client who recently started his own small tax accounting business. He has shared with you that the business is struggling and he does not know what he will do if the business fails. The client asks to prepare your taxes this year.
You have a client who is an independent artist and he brings you a gift of his artwork. The client gathers the materials for his art from salvage around town.
You and your family are attending a home game. As you are walking to the stadium a client recognizes you and offers for you to join her tailgate party. The client also notices that your tickets are in the same area of the stadium as hers.
You are a social worker in private practice whose client has just been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The client is frightened, crying, and hunched over.
You and a client have similar tastes and interests. After a year of therapy, you and the client terminate the professional relationship. The client expresses gratitude at her progress, sadness at the ending of the relationship, and hope that the two of you can become friends now that therapy has ended.
