BSHS 402 Week 3 DQ 1 -
Bill is a 43 year old man that comes to seek your services because he has been recently laid off from his job of 15 years. He looks un-shaven, clothes wrinkled, and has a hard time making eye contact. You find that he and his wife have been having marital difficulties since before he lost his job, and he “sometimes knocks back a few” in the evenings to help him feel better. They have a child, an 11 year old girl, who is very quiet and “minds well.” Bill tells you that he “just needs to find a job” and then he feels his troubles will be over.
Using the above case study provided by your instructor as an example, address one of the following two questions:
· List the components of an intake interview. In other words, what do you need to find out?
· List the components of assessment. Describe how you would assess the seriousness of each problem and the steps you might take to address them.
