Product description


"This is the most practical time-limited treatment book I have read in the past 10 years. It is timely, focused, straightforward, comprehensive, empowering, highly readable, and extremely valuable." --Ann Wolbert Burgess, RN, CS, D.N.Sc., FAAN, DACFE Professor of Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, Connell School of Nursing, Boston College"Crisis Intervention Handbook, Third Edition, is an indespensable resource that offers intervention strategies, guidelines, and numerous case examples for practitioners. This book provides the most up-to-date approaches to deal with the crises and traumas of the 21st century, such as bioterrorism, terrorist attacks, and the use of weapons of mass destruction. A must-read for practitioners and students alike." --Phyllis Solomon, Ph.D., Professor, School of Social Work, Professor in Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania"Professor Albert R. Roberts's third edition of his now classic Intervention Handbook is an astute, comprehensive, and up-to-date volume for practitioners, responders, and scholars working in contemporary crisis intervention. Adding up to much more than the sum of its parts, [this handbook] is a must-have for the mental health-critical care specialist's personal library, college and university libraries, and public library reference section." --Richard L. Levenson, Jr., Psy.D., CTS, Licensed Psychologist, Managing Editor, International Journal of Emergency Mental Health"This book is a must for social workers, psychologists, nurses, crisis counselors, and other human services professionals. It is a classic and timely volume on all aspects of crisis and crisis intervention. Dr. Roberts and his esteemed author team of 50 professors and clinicians have provided an exceptionally well-written, evidence-based, highly readable, insightful, practical, and pathfinding book." --C. Aaron McNeece, Ph.D., Dean and Walter W. Hudson Professor, School of Social Work, Florida State University"With its emphasis on contemporary issues, Crisis Intervention Handbook, Third Edition, is the leading edge of knowledge in the field. Fifteen new chapters focus on the most important issues for the mental health and disaster relief professionals who respond to traumatized individuals and families in a post-9/11 world. The current need for culturally sensitive crisis intervention is critical, and Roberts's book is a powerful tool to meet the needs of first responders of all sorts." --Jeanne A. Clement, Ed.D., APRN-BC, FAAN, Associate Professor, Nursing and Psychiatry, Director, Specialty Program in Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, College of Nursing, The Ohio State University"Robert's third edition of the Crisis Intervention Handbook is an outstanding resource for clinicians and students in the helping professions. As in past editions, Roberts's crisis intervention model provides the foundation for the book. In each of the 32 chapters, clinical examples and up-to-date research findings are beautifully integrated in order to provide readers with specific assessment and practice guidance. The addition of two chapters dedicated to the evaluation of crisis intervention completes the book, making it an invaluable asset for current practitioners and students alike." --M. Elizabeth Vonk, M.S.W., Ph.D., Associate Professor, School of Social Work, University of Georgia"This is a very worthwhile volume that will be valuable for most mental health professionals. It is a handbook that targets practitioners, and it provide rich clinical information, helpful tips, guidelines, and tools to be used in crisis intervention. Many psychologists should read the book..."--Psyccritiques

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Most Practical Book on Crisis Intervention 30 Aug. 2011
By Laura I - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I think whether or not you'll find this book useful depends on what you're looking for. I used it as a textbook for a crisis intervention course when I was getting my masters in social work. It is a very lengthy book, as you can see in the details, it is nearly 900 pages long. The book went into detail explaining Robert's Seven Stages of crisis intervention, and then had various chapters on things like bio-terrorism, divorce, grief, etc. With this book, you can "search inside", and I recommend you look at the index so you can see a full list of all the topics covered.

For my purposes, the book seemed to focus too much on subjects like terrorism and natural disasters. That might be perfect for someone who's a red cross volunteer, but I'm in crisis response and I deal more with psychiatric emergencies, and more "everyday crises". Also, I found that the book's large and voluminous nature made it a bit impractical. I.E., I'd have to search through the author's long imaginary narratives in order to find useful information to use with my clients.

I recently purchased another book on Amazon that you might want to consider called the "Pocket Guide to Crisis Intervention", which I like better. It basically covers everything, but in only 200 pages, and with bullet points and charts which are easily and quickly accessible. But I think it depends what you need, whether you'd prefer the pocket guide or this larger book.
