You are a mental health provider and you have a 35-year-old client who was in an automobile accident a year ago. In the accident, his best friend died and he was significantly injured. Your client was driving the vehicle. There was no substance use involved in the accident and your client did not experience any traumatic brain injury. He has experienced guilt for not dying in the accident even though it was clearly the fault of the other driver involved who also died in the accident. He has been grieving the loss of his friend as they were inseparable. His friend left behind a young child and a wife. Although he went back to work rather quickly after the accident (3 months later), he is finding it now hard to get up in the morning and go to work. He is using his sick time to spend with his friend’s family and help them. Your client is not married or involved in a significant relationship. However, his own family is concerned about him and that he is not fully functioning or interested in social activities. He is also not sleeping well. The anniversary of the accident is approaching.
