Summary: Supplement for introductory courses in Counseling and Clinical Psychology.

Hands-on and practical, this compact volume is organized around key factors that contribute to resilience and resolution in any crisis, with ideas and tools integrated into every chapter, to take full advantage of the synergistic qualities of theory and practice. After introducing the main factors that promote resolution of crises, the authors explore recent exciting theoretical pers morepectives on crisis resolution taken from post-modern thought and positive psychology, including chaos and complexity theory, constructivism, narrative perspectives, teleonomy, and emotional intelligence. Through the remainder of the text, they discuss the implications of these concepts for crisis intervention and present specific techniques based on these perspectives.


  • Two-chapter introduction to crisis intervention--Exploring the principles of resilience and resolution.
    • Gives students a solid understanding of research-identified factors that promote positive crisis resolution--illustrates implications of these findings for designing intervention techniques.
  • Coverage of three primary techniques for promoting crisis resolution--Tracking resolution, transforming crisis metaphors, and asking ''moving on'' questions.
    • Focuses prospective counselors on resolution rather than trauma--encourages an attitude toward survival that facilitates the natural healing process.
  • Individual chapters on the four fundamental elements that contribute to successful crisis resolution--Making contact, making meaning, managing emotions, and envisioning possibilities.
    • Introduce the notions of ''being with'' a survivor, constructing survivor ''stories,'' promoting positive emotions, and setting goals--encourage mastery of these critical intervention skills.
  • Four-chapter treatment of crisis environments--Individuals, couples/families, groups, communities.
    • Assists readers to ''pull together'' all of the information from previous chapters--illustrates way to use text principles to instigate and encourage the natural change process.
  • Goals, Overview, and Segue sections in every chapter.
    • Organize content for optimal understanding--help readers focus on the chapter's ''message,'' and bridge the content of each chapter into the ones preceding and following it.
  • Listening in on Crisis Intervention boxes--In every chapter.
    • Encapsulate actual counseling sessions based on the authors' experience--provide examples of ways to interact with clients, what to say and how to say it in a particular situation.
  • Structured Practice Activities and Experiential Learning Activities in each chapter--Linking hands-on practice to specific tools covered in each chapter.
    • Allow students to ''learn by doing'' through regularly-presented opportunities to engage with the chapter's ideas--offer guided practice in text strategies.
  • A Crisis Story based on the authors' professional experience in every chapter--Accompanied by a listing of available resources to address the story's situation.
    • Serves as a case study involving the chapter's content--opens a window for students onto actual clinical practice with individuals in crisis. less
