Overview: Selection of appropriate resources and interventions for clients who have experienced trauma or crisis involves consideration of biological,
developmental, cultural, and spiritual factors. Your success in treating these clients will depend heavily on a comprehensive assessment of these factors and on
matching an appropriate intervention to the client crisis or trauma experience and to the individual needs of your client.
The first final project for this course is the creation of a trauma toolbox consisting of resources selected from counseling literature that you will use to support
clients who experience symptoms of crisis and trauma. You will review different case studies throughout the course that will introduce you to how to work with
different types of clients.
This assignment represents the second of the case studies and involves identifying a treatment intervention that can be used when working with clients
experiencing bereavement and grief.
Note: You will also submit this assignment to your ePortfolio as part of your final project trauma toolbox in Week Nine. After receiving feedback, you will upload
the paper, including tracked changes that show any revisions or corrections you made, for your final toolbox submission. This is required in order to receive
credit for the final project.
Prompt: Review the Week Five Case Study Ilana document, and then address the following. Be sure to support your responses with research.
