Engage, Assess, Intervene, and Evaluate: You are collaborating with a female client, Jenna, aged sixteen. You have been collaborating with her for three months. Like any teenager, she is occasionally moody and quiet during sessions. In your session today you notice that she is less engaged and more distant than usual. Her journal entries this week are very dark and death oriented. She is currently living with her uncle in foster care, while her mother is in a drug rehabilitation program. She does not have a good relationship with her cousins and says that she feels trapped with no place to go. Are these changes the result of typical adolescent behavior, or should a suicide assessment be conducted with this client? Explain your answer.
