Current Events Paper Instructions
You will follow the weekly news looking for a situation in which you will hypothetically respond to as a crisis interventionist. For instance, it may be a news story of a bank robbery and you are called to debrief the bank teller and witnesses, or perhaps a house fire where a local family lost all of their belongings and you are called to meet with them.
You will complete a 750–1000-word review format of the incident that includes these 4 primary sections:
1. Explore the nature of the crisis presented;
2. Suggest steps for alleviating the crisis;
3. Teach coping skills; and
4. Help the victim(s) develop resiliency.
This assignment must be in current APA format and must include at least 1 citation of the textbook and at least 1 citation from an outside source. Your paper must also include a title page, abstract, and reference page in current APA format. Your abstract must be 150–250 words.
