Being and Becoming:

From Depressed Boy to Responsible Adolescent


Presenter: Chana Mark L.C.S.W.

Supervisor:  Gary Schlesinger, Ph.D.


A boy lost his father under tragic circumstances. His well-meaning but struggling mother cannot help him become a man. We will explore his analysis and slow, steady progress as he moves from social isolation to friendships, and from unproductive patterns of being and “being with” to awareness of his challenges and his desire to grow.
