Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Amanda is a 16-year-old who is going through a rough time. Amanda and her best friend had a major argument, and haven’t been talking to each other since. To make matters worse, Amanda has not been doing well in school she’s always been a bit unfocused and disorganized, and now that she’s in high school, classes are much harder and she sometimes loses track of assignments or doesn’t plan enough time to study. Amanda has been feeling constantly sad about losing her best friend and disappointed in herself for not getting better grades. She lies awake at night thinking about these problems, her grades have slipped further, and she has been skipping her extracurricular activities and meals with her family, saying she is too tired.
