Paper Intervention strategies – micro, mezzo, and macro levels
write a paper that identities possible intervention strategies that apply to micro, mezzo, and macro level systems from in the following scenario:You receive referrals from your supervisor, who in turn, receives them from an intake worker. It is your job to establish initial connections with clients by engaging them in the problem-solving process, familiarizing them with the agency, and supplying them with information. You are also expected to solicit all necessary data to assist in service provision, provide short-term counseling when needed, and make appropriate referrals to agency units and other community resources.VAnYou receive a referral involving an elderly individual, Murray Stone. The person who made the referral, Duke Earl, is one of Mr. Stone’s neighbors. Mr. Earl is concerned because Mr. Stone has twice fallen on his own icy sidewalk and been unable to get up without assistance. Fortunately, on both occasions, Mr. Earl observed the fall and was able to help Mr. Stone back into the house. Inside, Mr. Earl found chaotic conditions. Rotting garbage was strewn around the kitchen, and a dozen or more cats wandered through the house. Mr. Earl noticed one cat eating what looked like canned creamed corn mixed with ketchup from a plate on the table; he wondered if the food had been intended for Mr. Stone’s lunch. Mr. Earl was also worried about Mr. Stone’s diet in general. The elderly man looked gaunt, and his neighbor was afraid that he was unable to shop or cook adequately.ThlnYou begin by calling Mr. Earl to clarify his report, ask a few additional questions, and thank him for his interest and help, thus engaging Mr. Earl in the problem-solving process. Remember from SSS 605, Generalist Practice with Individuals, Families and Groups, engagement is the process of orienting oneself to the problem at hand and of establishing communication and initiating a relationship with the individual or individuals involvenrAnNow you must figure out what to do about Mr. Stone, which means engaging him—the client—in the problem-solving process and determining what he wants and needs. During your assessment you learn that Mr. Stone has two sons and one daughter who also live in your county.
