Assume you were counseling people with the following presenting problems. 

James

My fear is that I am empty and vacant inside. I’ve never really had to look at myself before now, but since my husband left me, I am lost. I feel deserted, abandoned, isolated, and fear that I cannot make it alone. I depended on him to give me a sense of worth, and now that he’s gone, I just feel a void. 

Susan

Michael 

When I hear about all of the terrible things that are happening in the world (mass shootings and hate crimes, terrorism, poverty, and homelessness), I get so sad.
