Handling crisis situations is a scary and often intimidating task for many beginning and even seasoned counselors, social workers, human service workers, psychologists, nurses, police officers and other professionals. Assessment is the foundation and most critical process in crisis intervention since it helps provide the practitioner with essential information reducing the trial and error method that many practitioners find themselves using Myer discusses a three-dimensional model for understanding the assessment process using affect, cognition, and behavior reactions as the three core components of the assessment process. Unique in its focus on assessment in crisis intervention, this text provides a needed element that is often left out or treated superficially in other crisis intervention texts. Benefits: A useful Triage Assessment Form: Crisis Intervention helps train students and practitioners in an effective method for assessing crisis situations. Case examples illustrate concepts and techniques discussed and demonstrate the use of the Triage Assessment Model with clients. Basic skills needed to help understand clients in crisis are discussed to help readers master essential skills. The author provides helpful guidance in "thinking through" how to do assessments in crisis situations. Discussion of the important differences between crisis assessment and other assessment, such as symptom and psycho/social history assessments clarify the process for students. Study resources in every chapter include Points to Remember and Study Questions.

Research on the nature and treatment of schizophrenia has undergone a revival and metamorphosis in the last decade. For a long while, the field had been moribund, weighed down by an unreliable diagnostic system, pessi mism about the possibility of new discoveries, and a dearth of research funds. A number of factors have seemingly coalesced to change this situa tion, with the result that the field is now alive with excitement and optimism. Four factors seem to have played important roles in the resurgence of interest. First, prior to the publication of DSM-III in 1980 there was no reliable diagnostic system for the disorder. Previous definitions were overly general and imprecise. Consequently, the label "schizophrenia" applied to a very heterogeneous group of severely disturhed patients. It was rarely clear whether two investigators had studied comparable samples, making it im possible to determine if (flew findings were generalizahle or if failures to replicate were due to the unreliahility of the results or the fact that the investigators had studied different disorders. DSM-III has not totally re solved this problem, but it has allowed scientists to reliably identify a much more homogeneous group. As a result, it is now possible to integrate the results of different studies, making it much more likely that we can make important advances. The second important factor was the development of new technologies that promised to help uncover the nature and etiology of the disorder.

The purpose of this book is to provide theoretical, analytical, and practical knowledge for first responders. Face-to-face interaction with the client/victim is part of the comprehensive approach advocated by this book, which requires interveners to assess the nature of a crisis and the condition of the victim in order to determine the appropriate course of action. Effective communication skills, along with adequate training and preparation for intervention, are the keys to quality interaction between the intervener and the client/victim. Each chapter in this book offers a substantially updated theoretical overview of a particular facet of intervention, as well as models and methods for applying crisis theory to crisis situations faced by interveners. The comprehensive balance of theory and practice presented should enable the intervener in coupling the general knowledge of human psychology and emotional crisis with the specific and novel characteristics of various crisis situations. This new third edition retains important information in a revised format while adding important and timely cognition. Written for pre-service and in-service criminal justice and social service crisis interveners, it will also be of interest to emergency medical personnel, clergy, proba-tion/parole officers, victim advocates, psychological personnel, and professionals from other criminal justice, and social service areas.
