Counselor and client safety | Psychology homework help

 

  1. Locate a minimum of two current scholarly articles (published within the last 15 years) from the professional literature that address counselor safety and two articles that address client safety in crisis situations, for a total of four articles. Tip: You may need to look at multiple disciplines, such as counseling, social work, emergency and crisis journals, and so on.
  2. Evaluate the key points of the articles in your own words, such as the author’s recommendations, and describe the issues related to counselor and client safety.
  3. Evaluate the key elements of the risks to counselor and client safety associated with the types of crises you may work with in your community. Key elements of risk are discussed throughout crisis assessment in your textbook, such as assessing for lethality, determining if mental instability is present, or if substance use is involved. Chapter 6 is particularly helpful in the assessment process of a telephone or distance counseling client or a severely disturbed caller.
  4.  Discuss the procedures for identifying trauma and abuse and for reporting abuse when safety issues arise for the counselor or the client.
