Question Description

Scenario: Teresa is scheduled to meet with you this morning. You reflect on the progress she and her children have made as a result of the interventions that you have recommended. With each struggle, Teresa practiced using the problem solving skills that you taught her and, while she was still not able to leave public housing, she would be exited from other public assistance programs today. She reminds you of yourself and your own struggles, and you wonder if you should tell her about your own path. It seems that it would be a good idea to tell her about your story so that she can remain hopeful of continued success. When she knocks on your office door, you excitedly ask her to step in.

She begins to cry and tells you that she is not sure what to do; her family is going to be evicted from public housing and she lost her job. You sit very still, “What happened?” She tells you that she even though the police told her uncle that he had to leave the house, he did not. He has two felony drug convictions and no one with a drug felony is allowed to live in that public housing community. She starts to cry harder and hyperventilate. To help her calm down, you consider telling her your story.


  1. Should you tell Teresa about how you also had to live on public assistance while recovering from a substance abuse problem? After all, you had a worse situation and managed to recover; if she hears your story, she might feel hopeful.
  2. What are your next steps to help manage this crisis?
  3. What referrals would most likely be added to her new intervention plan?
