Review quote

"The Crisis Intervention Handbook (2nd Edition) ... is a classic tome that remains acutely relevant during times when crisis and psychological trauma are pervasive throughout society. ... the chapters in this book are highly readable, informative and practical in application. This is the first compendium of all original chapters to examine and clarify the differences between stressful life events, traumatic stress, developmental crisis, traumatic crisis, psychiatric emergencies, and catastrophic crisis. ... Roberts's book is a necessity for practitioners, faculty, and students ... [it] has clearly surpassed both the first edition and my high expectations. ... [This book] will rapidly become the gold standard for all beginning and experienced crisis clinicians."--Brief Treatment and Crisis Interventionshow more
