From Pearl Harbor to the events of September 11, 2001, to the ravages of Hurricane Katrina, tragedy can leave indelible scars. Its many forms are now visibly present in our local, national, and international communities. Crisis intervention, as a clinical technique employed to combat the debilitating effects of stress that accompany crisis, is quickly becoming a social movement. Crisis Counseling and Therapy provides comprehensive instruction in this important and rapidly burgeoning field with a systemic three-phase method that is simple and practical. This innovative model can easily be incorporated into the clinician's practice to provide effective, strategic intervention.
