An important topic for any practicing counselor or counselor in training, Crisis Intervention and Prevention focuses on practical applications, assessment, and treatment options for a variety of crisis situations. Keeping in mind the needs of modern-day counselors, this text not only addresses traditional conceptualizations of crisis (e.g., homicide, intimate partner violence, rape, sexual abuse) but also expands to cover recent developments in the concept of crisis in today’s world, such as terrorism, school shootings, and natural disasters. This will help readers to serve a diverse array of clients in a changing world.

Crisis Intervention and Prevention allows readers to become familiar with various crisis issues and situations and to practice necessary skills before encountering a problem for the first time in the field. The text features numerous crisis situations not found in other crisis texts and analyzes these situations, keeping in mind specialized fields such as school counseling, mental health counseling, and pastoral counseling. Readers are asked to see the process as a whole and are exposed to crucial information, clinical considerations, and practical experiences on each crisis topic.

“I think the main strength of the text is the overall quality of the writing. The chapters were clear and succinct and accessible to students. There was a good balance between discussion of research and statistics and the presentation of concepts and case materials.”

--Eric Ornstein, University of Illinois at Chicago

“The strengths of this text include the scope and appropriate level of depth of the topics that are covered. The chapter on emergency preparedness and response is a welcome addition to any text on crisis intervention. The information presented throughout the text is current and the writing and case illustrations are engaging.”

--Al Carlozzi, Oklahoma State University

“The writing style is clear, and I like the fact that it is learner centered and has good interaction. It is very appropriate for counselors in training and for young professional counselors in the field.”

--Toni R. Tollerud, Northern Illinois University

“I especially like the use of personal/professional experiences incorporated by the chapter contributors.”

--Nicholas Mazza, Florida State University
