Sophia is a 17-year-old girl being admitted to a psychiatric unit. Originally, the police were called to her home
when neighbors heard screaming. When they first arrived, Sophia was docile, while her sister and mother were in tears. The sister had bruises near her throat and reported that Sophia attacked her. On questioning Sophia, according to the police report, the officers reporting noted "unusual comments and behavior," and with her mother in agreement, the police have brought Sophia in for a psychiatric evaluation. Sophia became aggressive and anxious on removal from the home, but once she arrived at the psychiatric unit, she became more docile again, but tearful. She is cooperating with the intake assessment and complains of a voice that made her assault her sister.
