IN SUMMARY


To summarize the assessment set, we
are clearly focused on the individual’s crisis. 
We have it clearly defined.  We
have assessed the individual and his total situation sufficiently to develop a
“picture” of what is happening.  We have
developed a causal explanation of the crisis that includes the precipitating
event, and we have explored the cumulative and the unseen effects.  Basically, we are focused on the crisis and
have a good idea about what is going on, what happened, and what might
happen.  In addition, we have been
sufficiently involved with the individual to enable him to develop a similar
understanding of what is happening, what happened, and what is likely to
happen.  Now we are ready to develop our
intervention hypothesis—our possible solution.
