Mental Health Case Study
Aaron is a 5-year-old boy who presents to the clinic 1 month after his kindergarten physical. His mother states that he has not attended a full day of school because he screams, cries, and clings when she drops him off. When the teacher tells his mother to just leave and allow Aaron to adjust, she is called approximately 1 hour later to pick him up because he is still crying and panicked about being separated from his mother. Further questioning reveals that Aaron did not attend preschool, wakes up frequently with nightmares, and has had recurrent abdominal pain.
