The case studies presented in this series bring to life some of the vulnerabilities of the human experience during crisis situations. They offer a starting place for professional discussions about how we can best contribute to a movement of compassionate intervention.
Each case study is followed by two sections. The first section, “Lessons Learned,” highlights at least one particular area of the case that stands out as informational, transformational or both. The second section, “Thought Questions,” are intended to provoke further inquiry and discussion. The best way to learn from case studies is to ask all the “why” questions you can imagine because any and all eventualities are possible in the trenches.
The primary goal for presenting these cases in this manner is to encourage all varieties of helping professionals (Social Workers, Nurses, Case Manager, Mental Health Professionals, etc.) to gain a new appreciation for what it means to allow yourself to be vulnerable, a skill that is necessary for the development of empathy and compassion.
