Kenneth France details appropriate interventions for individuals in a variety of crisis situations, including rape and crime victims, natural disaster and terrorist attack victims, persons struggling with domestic and relational issues, those involved in police incidents and hostage situations, as well as suicidal clients and survivors of suicide victims. France highlights the importance of appropriate training for crisis workers and discusses the various methods that are most effective to ensure efficiency and to prevent burnout. He discusses the various agencies that crisis intervention programs should seek to work in cooperation with, and the many ways that these relationships can be mutually beneficial, as well as how to form these alliances.
