Abstract:
(Critical) This program provides a good review, with documentation, of the development of crisis theory from World War II to the present time. Definitions of crisis by serveral authors are offered, as are theoretical frameworks. The presentation of systems theory as a theoretical model is somewhat simplified and confusing at times. Three useful examples of persons and families in crisis are shown. The crisis intervention expert being interviewed is well informed theoretically but attempts to cover too much material. She speaks well, but to rapidly. Overall, the program is very useful for presenting crisis theory but not so useful for presenting application of the theory in actual intervention. Other than the point of providing help close to the critical event to prevent disabling adaptations, little specific information is given relative to working with persons in crisis.
