Crisis Intervention

“Crisis is a perception or experiencing of an event or situation as an intolerable difficulty that exceeds the person’s current resources and coping mechanisms.  Unless the person obtains relief, the crisis has the potential to cause severe affective, behavioural, and cognitive malfunctioning.”    
-- James, Richard K. and Burl E. Gilliland, Crisis Intervention Strategies, Toronto: Nelson Thomson Learning, 2001.
