This expanded new edition continues to demonstrate and provide theoretical, analytical, and practical knowledge for first responders. Face-to-face interaction with the client/victim is part of the comprehensive approach advocated by the book, which requires interveners to assess the nature of a crisis and the condition of the victim in order to determine the appropriate course of action. The comprehensive balance of theory and practice presented in this book should enable the intervener in coupling his/her general knowledge of human psychology and emotional crisis with the specific and novel characteristics of various crisis situations. The text represents the work of national scholars who have expertise in criminal justice and social service issues. Their chapters focus on a Historical and Theoretical Overview, Ethics in Crisis Intervention Practice, Intimate Partner Violence, Police Response to Domestic Violence, Children in Crisis, Elder Mistreatment, Suicide, Crisis of Rape and Survivor Intervention, Death Notification and the Theory and Practice of Delivering Bad News, Terrorism and Crisis Intervention, and Mass Casualty Crisis Response and Communication. Helpful appendices in each chapter provide additional internet resources, as well as a complete Model Law Enforcement Code of Ethics and Social Work Code of Ethics. This new edition retains important information while providing current case studies such as the “Miracle on the Hudson River” crash, the mass shootings at Virginia Tech, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Yarnell Hill fire in Arizona. This exceptional book is designed for firefighters, police officers, community service officers, correctional workers, emergency medical workers, probation/parole officers, protective service workers, psychological counselors, social workers, and victim assistance workers among others.
