This video is part 1 of 3 videos showing an holistic assessment with James who is suffering from depression and alcoholism. In the course of the 25 minute video, we explore his typical week, his hobbies and social networks, his family relationships, his attitude towards self care, and in particular his alcohol and reasons for drinking. we then move on to look at his housing and financial situation and the assessment finishes by asking Jim to talk about what he would like his life to become in the future. His key aspirations are then fed back and a personal plan is established with his top 5 priorities for making changes in his life.

In this final part of the holistic assessment we ask James to imagine his life in 18 months time being a lot better. We then ask him to imagine what would have changed. We then feedback on some of these areas of James’ life where he seems to want to change such as dealing with his debt, improving his relationship with his children and finding something to do to get out of the house more. ¬†We ask him to score out of 10 how important each of these is to him and begin to make a personal plan to support James to access support from the appropriate agency.

It is about compassionate listening, creating stories, challenge and change
