Designed for students in counseling, psychology, social work, and human services, as well as 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, professional organizations, and the government respond to events like natural disasters. Special consideration is given to the strategies employed following the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
