Professionals who screen clients for case management needs use a variety of tools. They have to collect information about the client that helps them create a holistic idea of the clientâ€™s needs. Once, they have collected information about the client, they analyze it to create a strengths based plan that matches the clientâ€™s needs with appropriate services. For this Discussion, go to the website below and choose two different assessment tools. Summarize the purpose of each tool and explain why a professional would choose to use it.

Once you have written your summary, answer the following questions.
- Complete one of the assessment tools that you selected for a hypothetical client and post a short summary of the clientâ€™s information (demographics and presenting problem). Then, add the answers that the client might have given on the assessment tool.
- Write a short analysis of the clientâ€™s responses and identify two or three needs that the client has that will require case management services.
- Compare the assessment that you used in your example to a similar one (SBIRT to AUDIT or CAGE AID).
