Daemion Counseling Center - Crisis InterventionDesigned to meet the needs of people who cannot solve immediate problems because their energy is focused on relief of overwhelming distress. When a personal or family crisis occurs, the world seems to fall apart. Often, you do not know where to turn or what to do. Trauma causes feelings of helplessness, or being "out of control". Crisis counseling provides sensitive assistance and support in the immediacy of these situations. Who Is It For? People who cannot resolve the impact of one or more of the following: -A traumatic, overwhelming event. -A death or other loss. -A series of stressful events. What Is Involved? An initial step in crisis work is exploring the impact of the crisis on the person or persons involved. Crisis intervention is designed to guide clients toward mastery of the circumstances that seem to be causing the greatest distress. Reducing the immediate crisis is necessary in order to gain the emotional clarity to make positive future decisions. How Does Crisis Intervention Work? -Explore the activating event(s). -Assess the symbolic meaning of the event. -Examine the coping skills used in the past. -Focus on why past coping resources no longer work. -Determine whether client is a danger to self or others. -Develop problem-solving techniques. -Implement specific goals.Chester*Main Site (Daemion Counseling Center)Daemion Counseling Center
