Chantal 1 of 2 Chantal is a 20-year-old college sophomore who is half Native American and half white. She is an only child and has always enjoyed being the center of her parents' attention. Chantal's father is a computer engineer arid her mother is a homemaker. Chantal grew up in British Columbia (BC), a province in Canada. She came to the United States to attend college "to get away from home and from my parents, who are very over-protective of me. I also wanted to see a new place." Chantal is 5'8" tall, weighs 155 pounds and is "a bit too fat. I work out but the fat seems to stay. My fresh- man 15 became a sophomore 30 I guess. But I also eat a lot of junk." Chantal was wearing loose fitting clothes and a pair of baggy shorts when she first came in. Chantal was referred to us because of her drinking. Her grades began dropping in her classes and an astute professor had a long talk with her one day. "My psychology professor, of course, spoke to me after class. I’d just bombed my second exam, I was missing classes and he wanted to know if everything was all right with me.

Chantal's psychology professor referred her to us for an evaluation but she also came on her own "since I don't want something that could be an issue become even more serious. I know there's nothing crazy about me but I may as well find out before I get too old to do something about it." Background Information Chantal's developmental history was unremarkable except for the fact that she was reading fluently in English by age 3 and in French by age 4. Chantal is bilingual, which is typical for people schooled in Canada. "My mom and dad really emphasized reading and thus I learned to read early. I became a voracious reader.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
