About

Overview

This fifth edition of Dr. Kristi Kanel's A GUIDE TO CRISIS INTERVENTION covers the fundamentals of situational and developmental crises, how they occur, and how they have been managed since the 1940s. Kanel discusses traditional counseling models as they relate to crisis intervention, and shows how they have been incorporated into her model-the ABC Model of Crisis Intervention-that is used by both paraprofessionals and professionals. Presented in detail, the ABC Model of Crisis Intervention is ideal for use in any mental health setting and with any individual (from any population) in a crisis situation. The text provides detailed examples of specific crisis situations, including developmental crises, trauma crises, post traumatic stress disorder crises (PTSD), crises of personal victimization, substance abuse crises, and crises related to loss, terminal and serious illness, and disabilities. New chapters discuss veterans' issues; sexual assault and rape; and ethical, legal, and professional issues. The author also explores suicide assessment and the use of the Mental Status Exam. Every chapter offers case vignettes to aid students in practicing the skills presented in the ABC Model of Crisis Intervention.

Features and Benefits

  • The book offers useful day-to-day guidelines based on the ABC Model of Intervention: 1) developing and maintaining rapport; 2) identifying the problem; and 3) exploring the client's coping strategies. It also includes hints on how to implement the model to provide therapeutic interactions in a variety of situations.
  • Case examples and scripts of dialogues illustrate the ABC model and show students exactly what to say to a client in a given situation.
  • The book emphasizes brief therapeutic interventions and short-term crisis intervention counseling to enable successful outcomes despite the changes brought about by managed care organizations.
  • The text covers the effects of dealing with crises on community workers/crisis counselors, with examples of burnout and secondary PTSD.
  • Discussion of the cognitive tree metaphor helps students understand how to ask questions that explore the cognitive component of a crisis and how to move up the branches to extract the essential “cognitive key” that underlies the crisis. This metaphor can also help counselors see how to start with a precipitating event or subjective distress and how to reach the cognitions from that starting point.
  • The “Cases to Role Play” feature offers students and faculty a starting point for discussions of particular crisis scenarios.
  • Tables summarize key points-including the history of crisis intervention, suicide assessment, death and dying stages, and HIV-AIDS issues-and provide students with outlines for assessing a client.
