Gilliland present the latest research, theories, and techniques of this rapidly evolving field, along with case material based on real crisis situations. This unique combination gives students the skills and strategies they need to take crisis intervention theory and technique out of the classroom and onto the street.A six-step model gives students and practitioners a systematic way of dealing with people in crisis (Defining the Problem, Ensuring Client Safety, Providing Support, Examining Alternatives, Making Plans, and Obtaining Commitment). Throughout the book, this model is applied to many different crisis situations, such as suicide domestic loss, sexual assault, addiction, posttraumatic stress disorder, and school violence.
