This video scenario is intentionally vague presenting the opportunity for you to begin to create a client scenario as you sort through various assessment tools including intersectionality, suicidal prevention and assessment, substance use disorder, cognitive-behavior therapy strategies and motivational interviewing.

If this client was from your state, maybe even your city what are key areas of power, privilege, and oppression that need to be taken into consideration? (Include a minimum of 4 references).
