This text introduces students to the fundamental concepts of crisis theory and practice and provides models for single-session intervention and ongoing crisis counseling. The authors present their theoretical framework and assessment and intervention models; then apply them to a variety of crises; such as sexual assault, domestic violence, substance abuse, and death. A special chapter--written by an expert in disaster crisis--uses a case example of the World Trade Center attack to illustrate protocol in this type of situation. Students learn to incorporate assessment into intervention--from the first interview through resolution--using the unique ABCDE model-Affective responses, Behavioral responses, Cognitive responses, Developmental assessment, Ecological assessment. Used to evaluate crisis reactions, this model increases the range of the classic ABC, to incorporate a developmental-ecological perspective which draws on both developmental and systems theory. -- from publisher description.
