This course will provide a basic overview of theory and interventions used when working with clients who seek out counseling during times of crisis. Crisis interventions address urgent situations that are triggered by a specific life event. Course material will address social/emotional problems associated with mental illness (depression, OCD, suicide, etc.), bereavement, or other social losses (health/chronic illness, divorce, unemployment, etc.) and how the counselor can intervene to prevent ongoing impairment or distress for clients.
