Review Chapters 8, 9, and 10 in your course text, Crisis Intervention Strategies. As you read, focus on the similarities and differences between the three types of individual, couple, and family crisis situations: crisis of lethality, sexual assault, and/or partner violence.
Review the articles, “Optimistic Explanatory Style as a Moderator of the Association Between Negative Life Events and Suicide Ideation” and “Best Practices for Working With Rape Crisis Centers to Address Elder Sexual Abuse.” Focus on how the issues examined in these articles are either unique to the particular crisis discussed or are shared with the other crises you have examined this week.
Select two of the three types of crisis situations you have studied this week. (Be sure that one of your selections is different from the two you chose to analyze in this week’s Discussion.) Reflect on how the two types of crisis situations you have selected are similar as well as how they are different, particularly in terms of their breadth of impact, the intervention strategies most often used in response to these situations, their intended outcomes, and the effectiveness of these intervention strategies in achieving these outcomes.
The assignment (2–3 pages):
Identify and briefly describe the two specific types of individual, couple, and/or family crisis situations you have selected.
Explain how the two types of crises are similar and how they are different, including, but not limited to the following:
Their breadth of impact
Crisis intervention strategies that might be used for each
The intended outcomes of intervention strategies used for each
The effectiveness of the outcomes of intervention strategies used for each
Explain what insights you have or conclusions you can draw based on this comparison.
