Description

CRISIS INTERVENTION STRATEGIES, 6th Edition is designed to equip helping professionals with the practical skills and procedures they will need to handle real crisis situations. Using an applied format that integrates strategies and case material (based upon real life crisis situations), James present a six-step model that gives students and practitioners a systematic way of dealing with people in crisis: Defining the Problem, Ensuring Client Safety, Providing Support, Examining Alternatives, Making Plans, and Obtaining Commitment. Using this model, the author then builds specific strategies for handling a myriad of different crisis situations - in many cases providing the dialogue the nurse, minister, police officer, counselor, or other practitioner might use. At the end of the course, your students will have developed skills and strategies that they can take out of the classroom and onto the street.
