Designed to help in day-to-day, on-the-scene crisis intervention, ELEMENTS OF CRISIS INTERVENTION: CRISES AND HOW TO RESPOND TO THEM, 3e offers a nuts-and-bolts presentation of the most important information and concepts needed to be an effective crisis worker. Using a practical, hands-on approach, this one-of-a-kind text provides information, strategies, and guidelines in a quick-reference, outline format. The emotional equivalent of physical first aid, crisis intervention is the act of interrupting the downward spiral of maladaptive behavior as skillfully and as quickly as possible--and returning the sufferer to a pre-crisis level of coping. Effective crisis intervention is about management, not resolution. The goal of this text is to present the basic elements of crisis intervention so that they can be applied to varying crisis situations. A concise handbook for helping professionals who work on the front lines of crisis intervention, it is perfect for crisis interveners, first responders, counselors, nurses, disaster responders, EMTs, law enforcement, human service workers, psychologists, social workers, teachers, agency directors, military, and any other professionals who encounter crisis situations.

With each passing day, tensions and crises are becoming common occurrences in our society. News media, social media, blogs, and personal discussions are escalating despair and anxiety among the public as catastrophes unfold. Law enforcement in particular is being scrutinized on how it handles these situations. Policing needs to evolve to handle modern-day crises, but what's the best method of reform? Colonel James L. Greenstone, EdD, JD, DABECI, a current peace officer and police behavioral health specialist, believes the answer lies in thorough crisis-management and de-escalation training for police officers. Although this area of expertise is typically overlooked in police academies, Dr. Greenstone makes a hard case for it to be systematically reinforced. It's not enough for officers to respond to situations; they also need to know how to de-escalate them and also to be held accountable for ongoing standards of practice. Filled with thought-provoking assessments and discussions on training, this vital resource defines policing principles and outlines the crisis-management and negotiation skills needed by officers to better service the public and protect themselves in the field. These detailed tools and techniques emphasize and expand on current concepts that will be invaluable to law-enforcement at all levels of service and administration.

Wer Konflikte und schwierige Situationen anpackt und mit der Macht des Dialogs löst, schafft es, das eigene Potenzial und das der Mitarbeiter auszuschöpfen. So kann vermieden werden, dass das Unternehmen, das Team oder die eigene Person an den schwelenden Konflikten zerbricht oder durch die - meist nur in den Köpfen existierende - Ausweglosigkeit dauerhaft gelähmt wird. George Kohlrieser, der sein enormes Wissen nicht nur aus seiner Arbeit als klinischer und als Organisationspsychologe, sondern auch aus seinen Erfolgen als Verhandlungsführer bei Geiselnahmen schöpft, vermittelt dem Leser Schritt für Schritt, wie man selbst immer Herr der Lage bleibt. Anhand von realen Geiselsituationen beschreibt der Autor die Schlüsselfaktoren, die den Leser befähigen, mentale Blockaden zu beseitigen, die uns alle immer wieder zu Gefangenen werden lassen. Führungskräfte erfahren, was sie tun müssen, um eine vertrauensvolle Zusammenarbeit und eine positive, engagierte Einstellung im Team zu erreichen: - Sprechen Sie die Situation klar an. - Bauen Sie echte Beziehungen auf - auch zum "Feind". - Denken Sie niemals wie eine Geisel. - Nutzen Sie die Macht von Dialog und Verhandlung. - Seien Sie selbst eine verlässliche Basis und bilden Sie so Vertrauen. - Verstehen Sie, dass eine Person niemals das Problem ist. - Richten Sie Ihr geistiges Auge auf Erfolg.
