She told me I was too young to be doing this job– yelled at me. FEMALE SPEAKER: Well, what set her off? [MUSIC PLAYING] CINDY: She found out her son’s been getting the refills on his grandmother’s oxy prescription and taking the pills himself. He’s also been forging her name– withdrawing money from her bank accounts. FEMALE SPEAKER: OK. I think we need to figure out how to help the client. What’s her name again? CINDY: Helen. She also said that he’s been taking valuable from his grandmother’s house. What a mess. I’m so sorry. FEMALE SPEAKER: We need to call APS. CINDY: Oh, we can’t. Helen already blames me for suggesting her son move in with his grandma in the first place. This will just make it worse. FEMALE SPEAKER: Take it easy, Cindy. CINDY: This is all my fault. I thought it was a good plan, I really did. FEMALE SPEAKER: Cindy. Look, I’m your field instructor, and here comes a teachable moment, OK? Advising a client like you did was not a good idea. In fact, it was unethical. But you are not responsible for the actions that other people take. Helen made her own choice when she decided to go along with your suggestions. Do you understand? CINDY: Yes. FEMALE SPEAKER: All right. Our job now is to figure out our next steps. Now, will you do that with me? CINDY: Yeah, OK. FEMALE SPEAKER: OK
