In Search of the Elusive "Hobbit": A Family Intervention Case with a Psychoeducational Focus.
Erchul, William P.; Scott, Susan Smith
This case study concerns an attempt to help a 15-year-old with the completion of written assignments and the development of time management and study skills. The document first presents the problem of the girl, Lisa, who could not complete longer written assignments due to an obsessive-compulsive anxiety disorder. The relevant history to the case is then examined in detail, and intervention strategies and results are described for family, parent-collateral, and client sessions over 16 weeks. The changes in the client during each week are described in conjunction with a writing assignment--a short story to serve as an introduction to J. R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit." The report concludes with a discussion of the successes, failures, lessons learned and changes that need to be implemented in the next program. A table that describes the Mother and Daughter Priority Rankings of Daughter's Activies is attached. (TE)
