Assignment: Counseling session with an immediate crisis.

Sometimes clients come into the counseling session with an immediate crisis. They need an immediate solution to a problem. Counseling in these situations needs to be focused and goal oriented.

Jamila has been working with her counselor on learning to better manage her 9-year-old son. Last night, her son was hit by a car and is in the hospital. This has created a number of problems:

  1. She has to arrange childcare for her daughter so she can stay with her son in the hospital.
  2. He will need some special care when he gets home because he will be in a wheelchair.
  3. She is fearful that she will lose her job as a teacher’s aide in the local public school.

Write a 500-750-word paper addressing the following:

  1. How would you prioritize Jamila’s concerns in the counseling session? What would you address first?
  2. What steps would you take in this session to make sure that Jamila has the resources she needs right now?
  3. How would you help Jamila develop a plan to manage the current crisis?

Include at least three scholarly references in your paper.

Imagine the following scenarios:

  • You are a community social worker or psychologist working with the Houston Police Department to deliver crisis intervention services to police, emergency responders, and survivors of Hurricane Katrina who just arrived at the Houston Astrodome disaster shelter. It is midnight and one of the survivors (who was brutally raped 1 week prior to Hurricane Katrina) wakes up screaming and throwing things at the young man in the cot next to hers. You were walking out the door to drive home and get a few hours sleep, but instead you are called on the loudspeaker to defuse the acute crisis episode and provide crisis intervention services. 
  • You are a crisis consultant to a large Fortune 500 corporation, and a volatile domestic violence-related shooting took place last week at the corporate headquarters. The employee assistance counselor, the director of training, the director of strategic planning, and the director of disaster planning want you to provide crisis intervention training to all employee assistance counselors and all corporate security officers. 
  • You are the new psychiatrist in an inpatient psychiatric unit with 50 patients diagnosed with co-occurring disorders; over the weekend a patient assaulted the psychiatric resident you are supervising. The resident wants to be transferred to another unit of the hospital because he had a nightmare and cold sweats last night. What do you do now? What types of training should be provided to all psychiatric residents and mental health clinicians in order to prevent patient–staff conflict from reaching a crisis point? 
  • You are the counseling psychologist at a state university assigned to see walk-in emergency clients. An 18-year-old freshman appears one afternoon and tells you she just came from her residence hall room and found her boyfriend in bed with her “best friend” roommate. Now she tells you she is seriously considering takingan overdose of nonaspirin pain capsules in their presence to “teach them a lesson.” How can crisis intervention help her to find adaptive coping skills and a more effective problem-solving approach to her predicament?
