As a first-year student at GSSW, I am enrolled in a foundation seminar course that is intended to bridge our field experience with classroom learning. This week, we had a guest presenter speak to us about crisis intervention and his experience with different types of intervention strategies. He spoke about threat assessments, suicide assessments, and abuse (domestic violence, child abuse/neglect, elder abuse, etc.). He not only provided us with a packet of information and resources regarding these topics, but he also shared first hand experiences dealing with crisis situations. As somebody who works with high-risk youth, this lecture was very pertinent to my field work and my future plans as a social worker. I definitely think I am now better prepared to deal with crises in the field (or at least know where to go when I have questions)!
