Case Study: 3 page paper

Must be have book Crisis Intervention Strategies by James and Gilliland. Must be familiar with the hybrid model of intervention and the Robinson Crisis Response Model. Both of which shall be incorporated in the paper. 

Daniel’s dad died when Daniel was 15. They had been very close, so when his mom remarried about a year later, Daniel had a hard time adjusting. His stepdad talked about how much God loved him, but Daniel didn’t want to hear it… just like he didn’t want to hear the stranger in the school assembly say things get better; that suicide isn’t any answer. Daniel had lived through three years of anger, pain, and emptiness looking for better. It didn’t exist.

Drugs and alcohol numbed the pain. Daniel separated himself from reality and from the people who loved him. On Thanksgiving Day, Daniel hit bottom. Already in danger of losing his driver’s license, he got another ticket. He was already facing a possible $5,000 fine or 30 days in jail for possession of deer out of hunting season. Also, he could lose his guns, all handed down to him by his father.

As he lay in bed that night, he felt tired. Tired of the pressure. Tired of the anger. Tired of the hurt. Tired of living. He got out of bed and put on his best clothes. He wrote his will and good-bye letters to his family and friends. He was so angry at his father for dying, he decided to kill himself over his father’s grave. Daniel sat in the cemetery with his dad’s rifle under his chin. He tried to pull the trigger, but couldn’t. He tried again and again.

At that point, Daniel called 911. You are the crisis team member who responded to the call. Using the hybrid crisis intervention model, describe how you would intervene in the situation.

Support your crisis intervention response with specific information from the case and text or with other information you get from the Web or other sources. Write your 2-3 page case study in APA style (not including the title page and references).
