Crisis Intervention Strategies / Edition 8 available in Hardcover
This authoritative, best-selling text presents the latest skills and techniques for handling crisis situations. The authors' task model clearly illustrates and elucidates the process of dealing with people in crisis, from defining the problem to obtaining commitment. Using this model, the authors build specific strategies for handling a myriad of different crisis situations, accompanied in many cases with the dialogue that a practitioner might use when working with the individual in crisis. This book puts you on the front lines with the crisis worker throughout the chapters, and then illuminates the techniques and strategies the worker used. New videos in MindTap (available with the text) correlate with the text and demonstrate crisis intervention techniques, ensuring that you not only understand the theoretical underpinnings of crisis intervention theories, but also know how to apply them in crisis situations.
