Case #7

In order to understand what about seeing her son's name on the bathroom stall in the girl's room has caused her to be so preoccupied, we thought it would be useful to understand why she feels the way that she does. Implicit in her writing about her experience, was a sense of conflict about her own reaction and, perhaps, asking questions to help her navigate the terrain between her unconscious and her "story-teller" will enable her to capture the genesis of her fears. If the story she created does not, in fact, prove to be a useful one for her, perhaps through talking about it, she will be able to fashion a story that is more useful. We also thought it might be important to talk to her son and see how he feels about the situation and, too, have the mother and son talk together about it.
