Risk Management

In this Assignment, you will apply the risk management techniques you have learned to a real-life scenario.

Assignment Scenario

Mr. Ashford is a caseworker at the County Human Services Department.  One of his clients, Mr. Lainez, is a young man who presents with many  issues. He has been in foster care and is about to age out of the  program to live on his own. Mr. Ashford will be assisting him with this  transition.

In an effort to connect with his young client, Mr. Ashford accepts  Mr. Lainez’s invitation of friendship on social media. In addition, he  provides his agency email address to Mr. Lainez when he asks if there is  not another way to make an appointment than making a telephone call and  going through a receptionist.

Shortly thereafter, Mr. Lainez experiences several disappointing  events. He loses his job, and the young woman he was dating tells him  she is no longer interested in seeing him. Additionally, he is  struggling to make ends meet, and becomes unable to pay the rent on his  first apartment.

At his wits end, he makes a vague suicidal threat on Facebook and  sends a desperate request to Mr. Ashford to set up an appointment as  soon as possible. Out on calls, Mr. Ashford does not check his email or  his Facebook account for several days, missing Mr. Lainez’s cues. His  young client is found dead of an overdose of medication he has been  prescribed by the Department psychiatrist.
