What People are Saying About This

Albert Ellis

"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)

Donald Meichenbaum

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)

Aaron T. Beck

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)
