Read the following case study and then answer the questions below and complete a closure form:
Antonio had previously been referred for case management from the drug court to undertake counselling and support as a result of his having been arrested for possession of narcotics.
The following information was gained within the first and follow-up sessions: He is a 30-year-old Argentinean who came to Australia with his parents, 20 years ago. They fled Argentina as a result of political strife and settled in Sydney. All extended family are still in Argentina. Antonio left Sydney 10 years ago to find work on the Gold Coast. He said he was having some trouble in Sydney with some people to whom he owed money. He recounts that he became involved with gangs whilst in Sydney and started low-level drug taking in late adolescence. Antonio expresses pride in his cultural background, but feels estranged from it. Antonio’s parents still keep in regular touch with him and he is obviously a cause of concern for them. However, their health is not good and he feels that he is a burden on them.
Antonio met a South American girl on the Gold Coast and she became pregnant early in their relationship. They lived together for two years and then separated. She gained custody of the child who is now five. She is refusing to allow him to have contact with the child and there is no court order in place.
Antonio has drifted from job to job and has worked mainly as a shortorder cook or bartender for a number of years. His drug taking has become habitual and he has taken cocaine, marijuana and amphetamines. He has also dabbled in intravenous heroin use. Antonio also drinks alcohol quite heavily. On occasion when he has been drinking a lot he will go to his previous girlfriends place and demand to see his daughter. Police have been called on a number of occasions and an Apprehended Violence Order is currently in place. It is clear that he still has strong feelings for his previous girlfriend and says that he loves her. He feels strongly that he would like to resume the relationship and assist with parenting the child.
Antonio is currently between jobs and has been sleeping on a friend’s couch for two weeks. This arrangement is unlikely to continue and so he is not sure where he will be accommodated next. He would like to increase his job options, but is not sure how to do this.
There have been a number of occasions when Antonio has stopped using drugs and alcohol. These periods of abstinence have been up to a month or two at a time. However, he has found that the pressure of being unemployed, having unstable accommodation and his anxieties about his family situation have led him back to seeking refuge in his addiction.
After working with Antonio for six months he has been referred to a local drug and alcohol service for counselling, an employment agency, Relationships Australia for family mediation and Lifeline for financial management assistance. He has been progressing with his issues, had gained a part-time position and is currently reunited with his girlfriend and child. Recently Antonio has started showing up to sessions appearing heavily intoxicated and discusses how he is going to be rich working on a new business model with some friends that have recently arrived from Sydney.
1. Write a paragraph (approximately 200 words) that demonstrates how you could successfully negotiate changes in the case management plan with Antonio.
2. What are five strategies that can be implemented if there is a need to manage any complex or high risk situations?
3. Choose one behaviour change model/ practice then a) outline the main features of the model/practice and b) discuss how this may be useful in working with Antonio.
4. After working with Antonio for another 3 months, it is determined that he no longer requires the support of the Community Centre. He has made significant changes, with only a few needs remaining which the stakeholder group, including yourself and Antonio believe this need/s can be best managed by an alternate service. What key information do you need to discuss with Antonio as part of the transition process?
