Group Typology Pierre- Noel 3 Group Typology: Paula Cortez Clinical social workers have to have a vast understanding of group typology so that appropriate group and client work can be presented and used. Paula Cortez is a 43-year-old HIV-positive Latina woman originally from Colombia (Plummer, Makris, & Brocksen, 2014). Paula was diagnosed HIV positive, acquired AIDS several years later when she was diagnosed with a severe brain infection and a T-cell count less than 200 and then also diagnosed with bipolar disorder (Plummer, Makris, & Brocksen, 2014). Overtime, Paula has been linked to a psychiatrist, OB nurse, Primary care physician, and social work to work through these presenting issues. Paula has a team of providers who all seem to agree that her health is decompensating due to her non-compliance with treatment that was recommended by her team, and overall lack of support (Plummer, Makris, & Brocksen, 2014).
