Use the case study you selected in Week 4.


Case Study #2

You are a mental health professional in a correctional setting. You are treating an offender who voluntarily sought treatment for past trauma related to domestic violence and sexual assault. She informs you that there is an ongoing investigation against the perpetrator, who is her ex-boyfriend. She is afraid to testify and/or provide information against him but has shared information with you during sessions. You are contacted by the prosecutor for information regarding the case and have a full release of information signed by your client.  Your client’s sister has also left you a message regarding the issue and is requesting a call back.
