ABC crisis intervention
Jill is a 27-year-old nurse who has come to you for help. She is working to put her husband through medical school. Jill sits back very uneasily in the chair and when she moves, she sometimes grimaces in pain. She loves her husband and wants to please him, but there is nothing she can do to make him happy anymore. She is complaining about being unassertive. Due to her lack of sexual responsiveness, he sometimes gets extremely angry and does things to her. Jill is afraid that her husband will find out that she is here today for help.
