Crisis Intervention

People who are struggling with many issues are like a tightrope walker: Sometimes, just a little something can make them fall. In this presentation, we talk about how to understand and intervene with someone in crisis. We explore the different stages of the crisis intervention and how to take care of yourself as an intervener.
