It is his first case of his and he had never worked with a subject like that. In the hallway he meets Rosa and tells her that he has a case where he has to do clinical interventions with a client using controlled substances. Jorge told Rosa that he has about 5 techniques to apply with the young woman. Rosa asks him what they are and he replies that they are very effective. She said that she used them with a 17-year-old boy who had behavior problems. Rosa told him to be careful and told him that she could help him if he wanted. He replied that he had a master’s degree and that she talked about it in a class. In addition, he indicated to Rosa that he has a study carried out in Chile that says that these techniques work well when young. Rosa asked him if he consulted with the minor’s parents. He replied that he explained that I was talking about the Chilean study. He added that the parents had reservations at first, but he explained what he did in his college class assignments and convinced them to sign the authorization.
