Crisis Counseling and Therapy
Comprehensive instruction in this important method
From Pearl Harbor to the events of September 11, 2001, to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina, tragedy can leave indelible scars. Its many forms are now visibly present in our local, national, and international communities. Intervention, as a clinical technique to combat the debilitating effects of stress that accompany crisis, is quickly becoming a social movement. Crisis Counseling and Therapy provides comprehensive instruction in this important and rapidly burgeoning field with a systemic three-phase method that is simple and practical. This innovative model can easily be incorporated into the clinician’s practice to provide effective, strategic intervention.
Crisis Counseling and Therapy recognizes that no single theory or strategy will prove useful in all situations and so offers students and professionals an adaptable approach to dealing with any crisis they may confront. By integrating four proven theories—narrative, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, and experiential/existential—and using the degree of disequilibrium experienced in the system to determine therapy sessions, this unique text presents a new approach to crisis work. In-depth, contemporary case studies and an easily-learned and -implemented model of application allow for multidisciplinary approaches to treatment and more positive, constructive outcomes.
