In the case study, Crying and Marching, Zack Will is a fourth grader boy who seemed to cry for at least 30 minutes every day in different school settings (e.g. cafeteria, classroom, hallway, and music class). According to the information provided in this case, the school guidance counselor, Ms. Ellis, mentioned how Zack’s mother provided information about some difficulties that she was also having with him. Apparently, Jack’s father had moved out, and the mother’s new boyfriend moved in, causing some issues and misbehavior on Zach’s part (p. 56).
