Week 2: Question for Discussion
(Wk #2: May 11 to May 17 – Main post under Assignment by Wed, May 13 at 11:59 PM EST).
Students are required to post a minimum of three times per week (1 main post answering the question 100% before Wednesday at 11:59 PM EST and 2 peer responses by Sunday at 11:59 PM EST). The three posts in each individual discussion must be on separate days (same day postings / replies will not be accepted).
Chapter 3 – The Intervention and Assessment Models
Chapter 4 – Tools of the Trade
Question(s): Case of Elizabeth.
Ana is a 45-year-old white female who is recently divorced. She is not doing well in her love life and comes to you to get some immediate help. She expresses feeling sad most of the time with suicidal ideation. She looks unkempt, sad, and has a hard time putting words together.
1. Of the nine intentional strategies depicted in your book (Crisis Intervention Strategies – 8th Ed. – By: Richard K. James & Burl E. Gilliland), which ones are the most important ones in this situation (mention 3 in the order of priorities)
2. Why are those the most important? (explain and justify your answer)
Guidelines: The answer should be based on the knowledge obtained from reading the book, not just your opinion. If there are 2 questions in the discussion, you must answer both of them. Your grade will be an average of both questions (50% each question). First question: Mention the adequate strategy for this case scenario (50%). Second part of this question: explain / justify your answer (50%).
