Social work profession is one that you cannot take lightly or try and predict the things that you might face on a daily basis. This profession helps one to deal with social issues affecting themselves and their families. Here the presenting problem is a homosexual named Garfield, who recently came out to his family about his homosexual choices that he has made; he is now sorry that he has made his family aware of his way of life based on their feedback. Homosexuals have been victims of discrimination, such as being subject to slurs or jokes, or suffering rejection by a family member. Garfield is of the opinion that because of his sexual orientation he has been hindered from advancement in his job, therefore there is no progress. Based on the lack of interest that Garfield is having towards his relationship it appears as if he is going through a depression stage. He is unable to keep a relationship for more than three months. Depression is a common mental disorder that causes people to experience depressed mood, loss of interest or pleasure, feelings of guilt or low self-worth, disturbed sleep or appetite, low energy, and poor concentration. Depression is different from feeling down or sad. Unhappiness is something which everyone feels at one time or another, usually due to a particular cause. A person suffering from depression will experience intense emotions of anxiety, hopelessness, negativity and helplessness, and the feelings stay with them instead of going away.
