Vicki, a 9 year old, first generation Korean- American girl, is brought into therapy
by her parents on the suggestion of her pediatrician. Vicki has been having
difficulties connecting with her classmates. She tells her parents that she feels
lonely because no one wants to play with her and she often eats lunch by herself.
Recently she was invited to a classmate’s birthday party at a local skating rink
but refused to go telling her parents that, “I can’t skate as good as the other kids.”
Vicki shares with you that, nobody likes me because I am stupid and fat.” Vicki’s
parents tell you that Vicki attends Korean school on Saturdays and is also taking

the southwest of the South Island, with a population of 7,000 altogether. There are different populations of this subspecies found in Fiordland (north and south distinctively) and another near Haast. The ones from Haast are generally smaller. Haast is an area in the south of the West Coast region, named after famous German geologist Julius von Haast, who was significant in early geological surveys of New Zealand, and also founded the Canterbury Museum. The group of Tokoeka found near Haast (Haast Tokoeka) are critically endangered, with a population of less than 300. The Haast Tokoeka are based in Haast, in the south of the West Coast region. The Tokoeka have a range of habitats suitable, for example, the Stewart Island Tokoeka are sometimes found in sand dunes. In Haast, the Haast Tokoeka tend to live near mountains, in grasslands, shrublands, and sub-tropic forests. They prefer to live in denser vegetation, where they make their burrows. In these habitats, they will eat small invertebrates, insects, worms, grubs, seeds, and larvae. The Haast Tokoeka also has predators, like possums, stoats, ferrets, dogs, and cats, which will attack the Tokoeka (including juvenile Tokoeka). The stoats and possums will also eat the eggs. The Haast Tokoeka is a nocturnal bird (meaning it is active during the night), and it’s believed that this is to avoid predators. The Haast Tokoeka does belong to the bird class, although it is one of few that cannot fly. The Kiwi genus has the scientific name Apteryx (Greek for “without wings”). It wasn’t necessary for this bird to fly, as its habitat, in dense vegetation, has most of its food on the ground, as well as the burrows they nest in. Most birds have hollow bones, so that it is lighter, and can fly easier. Because the Haast Tokoeka doesn’t need to fly, its bones contain marrow. The Haast Tokoeka’s eye is the smallest body mass (relative to body) of all birds. It has minor features to assist with the its nocturnal lifestyle. It isn’t necessary for the Haast Tokoeka to have bigger eyes, because they rely so little on eyesight. Haast Tokoeka have a highly developed sense of smell, which is uncommon in a bird, and they are the only birds with nostrils at the end of their beaks. They are said to be able to find their prey without seeing or feeling them, but solely through their scent. Before human settlement, the Tokoeka didn’t just used to be found in Fiordland, Haast, and Stewart Island, they were also found more throughout the south and east of the South Island, going as far north as North Canterbury. After humans settled here, they introduced predators to their habitat. This is a leading cause to their e>GET ANSWER
