Designed for students in counseling, psychology, social work, and human services, as well as crisis workers in-training, this text combines a general introduction to crisis theory and intervention with practical strategies for counseling crisis victims. The L-A-P-C model—a simple yet effective set of intervention techniques applicable to any type of crisis situation by crisis workers at any level of experience, is introduced in Chapter 2. Characteristics of effective crisis counseling and an overview of other theoretical intervention models are also presented throughout the text.
