Case Study Analysis—Part I

Aaliyah is a 25-year-old, single, Caucasian woman, w

ho lives in an apartment with a friend. She moved out

of her parents’ house at 18, after completing high school

, to remove herself from her father’s alcohol use.

company, but she is ready for a career change. Aaliyah has decided to return to school to pursue a degree

in criminal justice. She will be working and taking classes

at the same time, fitting her school schedule

around her work schedule.

During her first session of school, Aaliyah notices that s

he is having difficulty staying awake to complete her

schoolwork at night after a full workday. She does not w

ant her grades to fall, as her education is very
