Summary

Designed for students in counseling, psychology, social work, human services, and crisis workers in-training, this text combines a general introduction to crisis theory and intervention with practical strategies for counseling crisis victims. The L-A-P-C model--a simple yet effective set of intervention techniques applicable to any type of crisis situation by crisis workers at any level of experience--is introduced in Chapter 2. Characteristics of effective crisis counseling and an overview of other theoretical intervention models are also presented throughout the text. Types of crises are examined in Chapters 3 through 9. Topics include child abuse and neglect, family violence, drug addiction, suicide, rape or sexual assault, and loss of a loved one. Large-scale crises and interventions are addressed in Chapter 10. The text looks at how communities, government, and professional organizations respond to events like natural disasters--special consideration is given to the strategies employed following the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
