In this engaging guide, Kanel provides a comprehensive model for crisis intervention that can be used as effectively for day-to-day interactions as for emergency situations. Addressing such crises as drug abuse, AIDS, death and loss, and victimization and abuse, A Guide to Crisis Intervention is useful for everyone from first-year students to front-line professionals. Kanel's attention to multicultural sensitivity issues makes the book applicable to a variety of client populations.

Kanel provides helpful day-to-day guidelines based on the ABC model of intervention -- a generic model that follows a three-part structure: A) developing and maintaining rapport; B) identifying the problem; and C) exploring the client's coping strategies. This outstanding model helps counselors and counselors-in-training better manage the therapeutic session.

Review: A Guide to Crisis Intervention

User Review  - Rebekah - Goodreads

This book covers a lot of topics, but does so fairly superficially. In addition, there are many grammatical and other editorial errors throughout the book. I was hoping for better. Read full review
