Telling the Story, psychology homework help

Hector is a 35-year-old Hispanic male.  Hector was seriously injured in an auto

in the hospital.  One leg and hip
suffered permanent damage.  He will

and shoulder and cannot lift anything heavy.

Hector grew up in a family with a construction
business.  He has been working in
construction since high school.  Social

adjusting well to his injuries.  He is
very depressed and angry because he cannot continue to work in his chosen

Hector still experiences severe pain in his shoulder and his
leg.  He spends a lot of time watching TV
and drinking.  At this point, he is not

they remind him of what he no longer can do. 
He feels shame when he is around family members because of his
disability.  His relationship with his
wife is tense because he is often angry and withdrawn.
