HUSS 235 Bryant and Stratton College Crisis of Lethality Essay

Suppose you are a crisis intervention worker faced with a terminally ill client who is in a great deal of pain.

The client indicates to you in a calm, reasonable way that she is going to drive out to an isolated spot in a state park, go sit under her favorite tree, and after making a farewell message to her family, will kill herself. (James & Gilliland, 2013)
Discuss the ethical, legal, and moral dilemmas you would be faced with in this situation. Relate which workplace capabilities you might exhibit that would be helpful in addressing the individual’s concern.


Compare and contrast two of the prevalent theories of suicide (i.e. sociological, interpersonal, psychological). Be sure to cite two scholarly resources you used.

As a crisis worker, you will work with individuals who may be having these thoughts and you will need to understand what is behind them. After analyzing the two theories, construct at least two questions you would ask the individual to decide which theories their motivations best fit.


According to James& Gilliland (2008), among the many myths of suicide are two that are particularly salient in impending crisis work:

  1. Discussing suicide will cause a person to think about doing it or act upon it
  2. People who threaten suicide don’t do it.
