They support and guide people through health diagnoses, bankruptcies, sexual assaults, deaths of loved ones, suicide attempts, and natural or man-made disasters from the front lines. While professions vary from mental health professionals, emergency responders, educators, business managers or volunteers such as suicide hotline workers, all have a common and urgent need for a rapid reference that covers every type of traumatic event they may be asked to respond to in the course of an unpredictable and highly stressful day. The Pocket Guide to Crisis Intervention is a complete crisis toolkit, a trusted resource to consult on the fly, packed with easy-to-follow, step-by-step evidence-based protocols for responding effectively to a broad range of traumatic events. The open layout and two-color design make this pocket guide as visually appealing as it practical, ensuring at-a-glance lookup of the essentials of managing the most common types of crisis. More than just a collection of action lists, though, this pocket guide explains theories and models in clear, jargon-free language, offering tips for clinical practice, treatment planning, referrals, and coordinating services as needed.

Jun 18, Wendy Lu rated it liked it a little bit out of date, but still had some useful bits! It was one of two texts we used. Faced with using either Kristi Kanels text or that of H. Wright, I would choose Kanels book and would recommend it as the better to those interested and those uninterested in how spirituality and counseling connect. In this text, the positive side of crises is given much more of a central role, as is seen starting on page 3 with the Chinese definition of crisis as danger and opportunity.
A crisis condition is needed to confront clients successfully about the negative impact the drug is having on their functioning. For one, it may attempt to cover too much with too little room. Some of the issues dealt with, like cross-cultural counseling, are vital, yet may fit better with a text that is not centered upon crisis counseling.
Also, even considering the fact that this is a secular text, it seems as though spirituality was not given the time and space it should have. It provides basic information that allows new crisis workers or students to make informed decisions when it comes to client referrals and understanding ancillary risks.
This book was used as a textbook in my undergrad crisis management course, and it felt perfect for that purpose.
