Risk Assessment, Safety Plan and Case Management Plan with Resources

ASSIGNMENT 5 – 30%

Final Paper – Risk Assessment, Safety Plan and Case Management Plan with Resources

DUE: 1)         Rough Draft Submitted through TurnItIn for feedback to the student by Sunday at the end of Week 5, submitted as many times as necessary to turn in a final paper free from errors in spelling, punctuation, subject/verb agreement, plural/possessive errors, accidental plagiarism and complete and accurate citation to all sources that are not the student’s original thought

            3)         Final Report Submitted by Sunday, Week Six by 11:00pm Central.

Purpose: This assignment provides you with an opportunity to review and select tools for risk assessment, conduct safety planning and case management, as well as increase your knowledge about victims of domestic violence and learn about available resources in your own community.  This process will prepare you to begin thinking about safety as the primary goal of working with survivors of family abuse.  This requires suspending judgment, assessing the risk, working with the client as the expert about their situation, and helping them to plan to remain safe, regardless of their decision to stay or leave their situation.

Battered women leave an average of 7 times before leaving for good.  Seventy-Five (75%) of domestic homicides happen as or after leaving, so leaving is not always the safest thing for a survivor to do.

Lethality assessment and safety planning created with their input can help keep them safe until they are ready to leave safely.  Safety plans are never written down by the survivor, but you are writing it down for the purpose of this assignment.  In real life, you would write it down as you worked through it with the client, but you would have them recite it back and commit it to memory.  You can also refer them to a shelter who may do this with them.  But making a safety plan is one of the easiest things you can do to help someone stay alive in this situation, so I want you all to learn it.
