Section A:

Provide a critical evaluation of case study methodology.

Case study: Josie, aged 57

Josie is fifty seven year old women who lives alone after recently becoming widowed by the death of her husband of thirty-one years – Frank. Josie had French parents and grew up in South Africa, moving to the U.K. aged twenty-two to live with Frank and train to become a nurse. Josie has had a long and successful career as a nurse specialising in oncology, but took early retirement aged fifty-five to care for Frank when he became ill.

Recently Josie has increased her already heavy drinking. When Frank was alive they would regularly share one to two bottles of red wine an evening, a habit which developed over their years as a couple. Now she is alone Josie usually drinks Franks share too, and occasionally has a “glass or two of whisky to help me sleep”.

Josie has always been very concerned about aches and pains she experiences, but since Frank became ill her thoughts about illness have increased dramatically and she regularly presents to her GP surgery with a range of ailments. Josie has also called an emergency ambulance on four occasions over the past two months, with symptoms such as a racing heartbeat, feeling lightheaded, shaking and an intense fear that she is going to die. On every occasion she has been taken to the local hospital and had various physical checks, all of these have comeback with no concerns. Visiting the doctors and the local corner shop are the only places Josie now goes to, as she is too nervous to venture to the supermarket, the local park or the town centre as she says “there are lots of stupid kids round here and I don’t trust them”.

Josie has become quite obsessed with the people who regularly walk up and down her side road. In the evening she often stands at her front window or front door and shouts abuse at people walking or driving along the road. She continuously shouts racially and sexually abusive remarks to the adolescent groups who frequent the area in which she lives. This has resulted in numerous visits by the police. As these incidents have increased Josie has recently been cautioned for public disorder offences.


  • Explain how risk and protective factors may be operating to produce Josie’s current situation.
  • Use psychological research and literature to suggest an approach which will help facilitate Josie’s recovery from her current situation.
  • Identify the barriers and facilitators to effective implementation of this approach.
