Imagine that you are currently co-leading a group for adolescents who have recently experienced their parents divorcing. The group focuses on identifying reasons for divorce, improving communication skills with parents and other family members, and identifying coping strategies for dealing with difficult emotions and situations. The counseling group has been successful so far, and your relationship with your co-leader, another counselor, appears to be working well.
During the third session (out of six), your co-leader becomes very agitated when an adolescent member describes how angry she is at her mother. Your co-leader becomes angry at the member and says, “You sound just like my daughter after my divorce! Maybe your mother is a victim, too!”
Based on the literature and your readings, how would you handle the situation?
