  • A unique triage assessment technique provides students with tools for assessing the severity of the client crisis.
  • Case transcripts of dialogue, sprinkled throughout the book, help illustrate the techniques described and let students "see" the conversations crisis workers might have in dealing with a client in crisis.
  • James and Gilliland examine a wide variety of crisis situations, such as suicide, partner violence, addiction, violent behavior, posttraumatic stress disorder, school violence, and hostage situations.
  • Chapter 11, "Crises in Schools," covers provides strategies on how to respond effectively to the growing number of crisis situations in this setting.
