Crisis Intervention Strategies (Hardcover) (Richard K. James & Burl E. Gilliland)
About this item
Based on the authors' extensive experience in crisis intervention and teaching crisis intervention courses, this authoritative text presents the latest skills and techniques for handling crisis situations. CRISIS INTERVENTION STRATEGIES, 8th Edition features the authors' task model, which illustrates and elucidates the process of dealing with people in crisis. Using this model, the authors build specific strategies for handling a myriad of different crisis situations, accompanied in many cases with dialogue that a practitioner might use when working with the individual in crisis. Two new chapters systematically illuminate the topics of families in crisis and legal and ethical issues in crisis intervention. New videos in MindTap (available with the text) correlate with the text and demonstrate crisis intervention techniques for students who must not only understand the theoretical underpinnings of crisis intervention theories, but also apply them in crisis situations.
