Jamila has been working with her counselor on learning to better manage her 9-year-old son. Last night, her son was hit by a car and is in the hospital. This has created a number of problems:
She has to arrange childcare for her daughter so she can stay with her son in the hospital.
He will need some special care when he gets home because he will be in a wheelchair.
She is fearful that she will lose her job as a teacher’s aide in the local public school.
What steps would you take in this session to make sure that Jamila has the resources she needs right now?
