Co-Occurring Disorders and Crisis Intervention
Co-Occurring Disorders and Crisis Intervention James & Gilliland (2013) present the case of Gordon, a professional man who is married and has two children and has become increasingly dependent on alcohol to deal with the stress and depression in his life. James and Gilliland (2013) use a client, Gordon, to demonstrate various aspects of his treatment. In the assessment phase, counselors consider Gordon’s self-motivation for change, and determine that confrontation is needed to give impetus to Gordon’s treatment. This is a slightly different aspect of crisis theory. Offer at least three points of intervention that you strongly agree with and give reasons why or you can use others. One point of intervention is confrontation. A second point of intervention with which environmental cues which lead to substance use. The third point of intervention is pharmacological intervention.
