This course examines crisis intervention theory and its application. The material builds on the student's general knowledge of counselling and related issues and focuses on concepts central to crisis work.

Potentially violent situations common to Social Service agencies are explored and the concept of professional burnout as a crisis issue is covered in some detail.
