Core text for crisis intervention courses in Counseling, Social Work, and Clinical Psychology. Here is how some reviewers have described the text. This text presents a compelling argument that victims of crisis and trauma can recover and grow into strong and healthy survivors. The texts emphasis on resilience is an important next step in the evolution of this helping technique. Its detailed explanation of the techniques that utilize the strength of survivors is valuable for neophytes and experienced helpers alike. The exercises and discussion questions presented move it from a theory based text into a valuable tool for skill development. This text is a very valuable addition to the literature on crisis intervention. Thomas W. Rueth, Universityof Dayton The writing is excellent and well thought out. The ideas are presented clearly, the stories used in each chapter are excellent, and the authors do an excellent job integrating their stories with the content of each chapter. Chris McCarthy, Universityof Texasat Austin Crisis Interventionstands out as a cutting edge text among books on crisis intervention. The authors provide an approach to crisis intervention that is broad based and current. Clearly, the art and science of crisis intervention is conveyed through the use of research, story, literature exemplars, activities, and practical approaches.
