Case 10. Handling Unexpected Disruptive
Member Behavior During Group Therapy
Esther Hernandez, Ph.D., a specialist in the psychology of addictions, conducts
group therapy sessions for patients treated at a local methadone Medicaid clinic.
She has been meeting with a group of 12 women on a weekly basis for 2 months
and has been pleased that, for the most part, members attend the meetings regularly.
Although the women take methadone as a substitute for their heroin habits,
many also take other illicit drugs. At the initial session, Dr. Hernandez and group
members agreed on a rule that members should not come to a session if they are
high or intoxicated. The rule has been enforced several times during the past
2 months. Ethical Decision Making Models Presentation
At the beginning of the most recent session, Angela, one of the group members,
walks in late and is obviously intoxicated. Dr. Hernandez reminds Angela about the
rule, noting that Angela must leave but will be welcome back at the next meeting if
she is sober. Angela starts crying and begs to stay. Dr. Hernandez expresses sympathy
and then restates the rule. Angela stands up and states that a drug dealer to
whom she owes money has found out where she lives and she is afraid for her life.
Then as she rushes out of the building, she tells the group “You will all be sorry
when I’m dead.”
The other group members are obviously shaken by Angela’s behavior. Some in
the group feel Dr. Hernandez should end the group meeting and try to find Angela
to make sure she is okay. Others think Dr. Hernandez should call the police. Still
others in the group believe that Angela was trying to manipulate Dr. Hernandez
into permitting her to break the rule. They note that in the past she has tried to get
around other group rules. Ethical Decision Making Models Presentation
