Vignette Scenario

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
piano lessons.
