Supportive Partners

Discussion #2

Case Response – Sara is 17 years old. She is a senior in high school and is an A-B honor roll student with plans to attend college in the Fall. Sara just found out she was pregnant. The father is her 17 year old boyfriend of 5 months. While he seems supportive, Sara has felt him become more and more distant. Despite her fears, Sara told her parents she was expecting. Their initial response was one of disappointment and anger, and they worried for her future. Ultimately, Sara’s parents are loving and supportive and want what’s best for her. Sara’s parents are middle-class, but they both have to work full-time to support their household. Sara and her parents come into your office seeking available options and support.

As social workers and helping professionals, you must provide education, support and assistance for all options regarding Sara’s current condition even if certain options are against your own personal values. It is not your job to tell Sara what to do but to assist her with identifying the best path for herself and her future.
