Elements of Crisis Intervention: Crisis and How to Respond to Them, 3rd
Designed to help in day-to-day, on-the-scene crisis intervention, ELEMENTS OF CRISIS INTERVENTION: CRISES AND HOW TO RESPOND TO THEM, 3e offers a nuts-and-bolts presentation of the most important information and concepts needed to be an effective crisis worker. Using a practical, hands-on approach, this one-of-a-kind text provides information, strategies, and guidelines in a quick-reference, outline format. The emotional equivalent of physical first aid, crisis intervention is the act of interrupting the downward spiral of maladaptive behavior as skillfully and as quickly as possible--and returning the sufferer to a pre-crisis level of coping. Effective crisis intervention is about management, not resolution. The goal of this text is to present the basic elements of crisis intervention so that they can be applied to varying crisis situations. A concise handbook for helping professionals who work on the front lines of crisis intervention, it is perfect for crisis interveners, first responders, counselors, nurses, disaster responders, EMTs, law enforcement, human service workers, psychologists, social workers, teachers, agency directors, military, and any other professionals who encounter crisis situations.
