Here is the case study I picked it is the case study on Jill:

Jill is a 27-year-old nurse who has come to you for help. She is working to put her husband through medical school. She is complaining about being unassertive. She sits back very uneasily in the chair. When she moves, she sometimes grimaces in pain. She loves her husband and wants to please him but there is nothing she can do to make him happy anymore

Due to her lack of sexual responsiveness, her husband sometimes gets extremely angry and does things to her. Jill is afraid that he will find out that she is here today for help.
