Mark is a 34-year old male who has been married to his wife Megan for two years. Two weeks ago, Mark picked up Megan from her job as a nurse practitioner. Unbeknownst to Megan, Mark had been drinking at the local bar with his friends just prior to arriving at her job. As they were driving home, Mark ran a red light and was t-boned by large truck. Both Megan and Mark were transported to the local hospital. Mark suffered minor abrasions and was discharged. Megan’s injuries were severe and required multiple surgeries. After two days in the hospital, Megan passed away. When the doctors notified Mark of Megan’s death, they also shared with him that Megan was three months pregnant at the time of the accident. Mark left the hospital and returned home. For the next two weeks, he refused to take visitors, did not answer his phone, and quit his job. His mother, concerned for his welfare, called the police to do a ‘welfare check.’ When the police officer arrived, Mark’s home was a wreck, he had not bathed in days, and was not eating. The officer noticed a handgun on the living room table, along with multiple bottles of medication and razor blades. Concerned for Mark’s welfare, the police officer placed Mark on a 48-hold at the local psychiatric hospital. You are a counselor at the hospital and Mark is brought to you for counseling. Using the theory, you selected, develop a treatment plan based on Mark’s case.
