"Dattilio, Shapiro, Greenaway, and their distinguished contributors have knocked it out of the park with this fourth edition. The impressive breadth of coverage makes this volume truly relevant to the challenges of our times. Almost encyclopedic in scope, and yet accessible and manageable enough to be read in full, the text tackles clinical crises across the lifespan and with cross-cultural, global significance. Captivating clinical examples bring the problems to life and demonstrate how therapists can best respond. An added plus is that so many of the chapters include guidance on crisis prevention."--Cory F. Newman, PhD, Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, and Director, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania "Crisis intervention techniques have become more necessary than ever. The fourth edition of this comprehensive work addresses everything from the strains of helping others through a crisis to legal and ethical issues, cultural factors, and crises across the lifespan. The book provides state-of-the-science reviews of the treatment literature and expert clinical guidance for navigating every imaginable type of crisis. All clinicians and clinical graduate students have something to learn from this gem."--Barbara Olasov Rothbaum, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychiatry, and Director, Emory Healthcare Veterans Program and Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program, Emory University School of Medicine "It is unusual for a well-established book to become even more relevant with each new edition, but this is such a work. The fourth edition has been thoroughly updated with the latest information on how to competently intervene in crises involving behavioral health and substance use. Clinicians and students learn effective strategies for dealing with a variety of crises, from the consequences of violence, terrorism, and disasters to the more mundane but equally impactful crises that bring people to urgent care settings in ever-increasing numbers."--David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University-For those who are specifically involved as crisis intervention workers on an individual, organizational, or community level, the texts expertise will undoubtedly be a resource for some time to come.
