Analyzing an Ethical Decision
Week 1: Comprehensive Integrated Psychiatric Assessment
“We adopted Maria from an orphanage in Guatemala when she was 4 years old. We were hoping she would love us as much as we love her, but she is always so distant and will not let us get close. She continually bumps her head on the wall and screams when we try to make her stop. She is now 5, and we have tried everything to help her understand that we just want to love her and have her be part of our family.”
