Case Study Discussion Question

Answer 1

            The tragedy that transpired in the Yate’s family was preventable. The individuals that surrounded Andrea in her life would have barred her from committing such a heinous crime. This individual are: Andrea, her parents, Rusty, the psychiatrist and the institutional doctor. Andrea despite seeing the vision of a stabbing incidence, and knowing her problem, she kept silent, never sought help, or raised alarm to her family, and psychiatrist. Andrea’s family never took the initiative of helping her seek medical attention. Rusty, despite knowing her medical situation, never took keen interest even when the psychiatrist raised alarm. The institutional doctor also failed to expand her treatment, halted her antipsychotic drugs and sent her home after only marginal improvement.
