Jose is a 12-year-old middle school student. He has a single mom and a 14-year-old brother with a chronic medical condition who is in and out of hospitals a lot. Jose has had to find ways to cope with his brother needing assistance and taking most of his mom’s time. His mom works and has to take off from work to go see specialists out of town with client’s brother for a week at a time.

Jose has learned that it is better for him to help care for his older brother and help his mom instead of seeing it as a problem. Jose has been getting involved in school activities such as soccer and the debate club. Jose does not have a lot of opportunities to do things outside of his home because he has to care for his brother.

His therapist has worked with Jose in using different coping strategies to help deal with the stress of his brother being sick and in the hospital. Jose has since been able to be more thankful and focus on the present moment. This has also helped him to do better on the debate team. He has had a brighter outlook on his future and has been more positive.

He likes to research topics that he might debate in the future and looks forward to making it to the regionals with his debate team. It has been a privilege to work with Jose and give him more coping tools to work with while he plays a crucial part in supporting his family.

"I did one of the coping skills we worked on last week and it helped me to calm down and not get angry at my mom." - Anonymous
