Learning to self-infuse
In this scenario, a mother and her preteen son discuss his interest in attending a school trip that would require him to stay overnight. The mother has been administering the son’s infusions, but if the son wants to attend the school trip, he’ll need to learn how to self-infuse. We’ll explore this scenario using the “directive” and “constructive” approaches to see which approach leads the son to agree to learn how to self-infuse. Each approach is followed by commentary to provide background on why one approach may have been more effective than the other.
