A concise and informative resource for pre-service and practicing counselors, this textbook is filled with vital information on assessing and reacting to various crises of our time.

Crisis Assessment, Intervention, and Prevention focuses on practical applications, assessment, and treatment options for every crisis situation. Taking the needs of modern-day counselors into mind, this text not only addresses traditional conceptualizations of crisis (e.g., homicide, intimate partner violence, rape, sexual abuse) but also expands to cover recent developments in the concept of crisis in today’s world, such as terrorism, school shootings, and natural disasters, helping readers to serve a diverse array of clients in a changing world.  The Second Edition of this integral resource provides practical applications to various crisis circumstances experienced by counselors, and first-hand experiences and perspectives from practitioners working in crisis intervention situations.  Readers will become familiar with various crisis issues and potential situations and begin to hone skills that will serve them in the field.  In a unique, succinct, and straight-forward manner, Crisis Assessment, Intervention, and Prevention presents readers with the greatest set of information, the necessary background, the crucial authentic examples, and the practice needed to “see” the helping process as a whole.
