Rape Trauma Victim

Hypothetical situation:
A 12-year-old girl gives birth to a child after being sexually assaulted. The patient is placed in foster care. The foster parents take this client to see a psychiatrist. The foster parents only want the client to take Remeron to address depression and PTSD and will not support an SSRI or sleeping pill.

Discuss the psychological conflicts this client may face. Then comment at length about the foster parents approach to under medicate a client who could benefit from more medication. Discuss the psychological trauma that young teen mothers endure as it relates to their mental health. Then, briefly discuss the cycle of repeated behavior their children repeat. Please use references from 2012 or newer.
