Now in its revised and expanded second edition, this comprehensive text brings together leading cognitive-behavioral practitioners to describe effective interventions for a broad range of crisis situations. From panic disorder, Cluster B personality disorders, and suicidal depression, to substance abuse, rape, sexual abuse, family crises, natural disasters, medical problems, and problems of older adults, the book presents proven short-term approaches to helping patients weather the immediate crisis and build needed coping and problem-solving skills. Throughout, extensively revised and updated chapters incorporate new research and innovative therapeutic methods. Entirely new chapters cover such timely topics as neurological problems and head injury, youth crisis in the schools, divorce-related crises, critical incident stress debriefing, and secondary trauma experienced by the therapist. Chapters have been uniformly structured to provide readers with a solid review of the literature in each area, as well as case vignettes illustrating the use of specific techniques. Also included is an invaluable discussion of ethical and legal issues in crisis intervention.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This up-to-date, comprehensive review of crisis-based interventions is an invaluable contribution. The leaders in the field combine a critical review of the literature with a practical consideration of clinical issues and cases. Practitioners and researchers alike will find this text a major asset." --Donald Meichenbaum, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

"Dattilio, Freeman, and their authoritative contributing authors have done a beautiful job of updating this comprehensive book. The result is an excellent, thoroughgoing review of the main psychological problems in crisis intervention and related fields. If there is anything important that is missing from this unusual compilation of various modes of crisis intervention, I couldn't find it. A remarkably good anthology!" --Albert Ellis, PhD, The Institute for Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy

"Frank Dattilio and Art Freeman have once again compiled a powerful text, applied to a comprehensive range of crisis situations and prepared by some of the finest contributors in the field of cognitive therapy....This text is a necessity for the frontline practitioner and will clearly serve as a resource for continued research in the field." --from the Foreword by Aaron T. Beck, MD, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

Both for active crisis workers who come into contact daily with crisis situations in outpatient and outreach programs, and for private practitioners who confront crisis situations less frequently, specialist mental health professionals explain ways to apply the cognitive-behavioral approach to a wide spectrum of situations found among crisis settings. The 1994 edition has been widely used as a graduate textbook. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
