This sixth edition of A GUIDE TO CRISIS INTERVENTION covers the fundamentals of situational and developmental crises, how they occur and how they've been managed since the 1940s. Author Kristi Kanel discusses traditional counseling models as they relate to crisis intervention, and shows how they're incorporated into her model--the ABC Model of Crisis Intervention--that's used by both paraprofessionals and professionals. Presented in detail, the ABC Model is ideal for use in any mental health setting and with any individual, from any population, in a crisis situation. Detailed examples of specific crisis situations include developmental crises such as FOMO and quarter life crises, cultural crises such as Black Lives Matter issues, substance abuse crises (including opioid addiction issues) and many others. Students practice their interviewing and helping skills with case vignettes.
