Ever heard about a tricky clinical scenario and thought, "I know exactly how I'd handle that"? In the spirit of sharing and community, we're introducing a forum called Clinician's Quandary, where you, the reader, offer your take on how you'd address a clinical dilemma from a real practice.
On the first Tuesday of every month, we'll pose a Quandary and collect responses. Top answers from the previous month will be posted that same day and shared with your colleagues worldwide. See below for submission details.

I feel uncomfortable attending, especially since my client has spoken to me about issues in her marriage, but don’t want to jeopardize my son’s friendship or my chance at having a social life in this new town. Should I stay home or go?
We want to hear from you:
