About the Book

‘The Mysterious Case of Lincoln’ is a story of an autistic boy who was taken from his mom and dad at about age 9 and was placed in foster care. Lincoln had difficulty in social and emotional processing and transferring of information; he had problems communicating what he was feeling and thinking and would project his frustration through unacceptable behaviors. He wanted to return to live with his mom and dad, but several unfortunate events were hindering him from doing so; Lincoln appeared to be left on his own with an uncertain future; his zone of transient comfort were three caregivers and the foster home he spent most of his years, but this dull and melancholic posture will soon be changed.

About the Author

Growing up in the rural district of Murray Mount in Jamaica; I had a deep interest to understand human behavior. Consequently, I studied and received my first degree in Guidance and Counseling in 2009 from International University of the Caribbean (IUC). Later, I earned a Master of Education in Teaching and Learning from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in 2015. Presently, I am enrolled in the Master of Arts in Clinical Consulting Psychology program at Assumption College. I worked as a guidance counselor in Jamaica for six years, at the primary and secondary levels, and motivated young people through several empowerment programs. Currently, I am living and working in Worcester with a non-profit organization in the field of social services as a rehabilitation counselor for at-risk youth in Massachusetts. I am driven by a yearning to understand concepts of life and living; how individuals with challenges relate through different levels of communication, and if this is understood as it supposed to. My quest to understand the anatomy of human behavior inspired the writing of this book, ‘The Mysterious Case of Lincoln’.
