I believe it is important to acknowledge the mistake that was made on the part of the medical team, which the social worker did in this case with Jose. The social worker also did a good job of addressing any pain caused by the lack of information previously given. It would be important to discuss with Jose what the definition of building a family looks like to him and then addressing his answer with appropriate referrals, educational materials, or support. The social worker could have given Jose a bit more time to process. I would then want to provide options for moving forward based on our conversation and any knowledge about male AYA patients post treatment and in to survivorship.
