Crisis Counseling: A Contemporary Approach
Crises are a universal part of the human condition. At one time or another anyone may be called upon to act as a crisis counselor. This comprehensive text deals with the nature and extent of contemporary and long-standing crises, such as AIDS and HIV, issues of parenthood, divorce, abuse, adapting to aging, suicide, and adolescent sexuality. Special topics in crisis counseling, such as spouse abuse, specific population groups, radiation exposure, environmental issues, and unemployment, are also given extensive coverage in this outstanding second edition of Crisis Counseling: A Contemporary Approach. Especially intended for care providers from all disciplines who endeavor to help people deal with conflicts and demands, this book will also be useful to those outside of the health professions who regularly engage in crisis counseling, such as teachers, managers, and members of the clergy.
