It applies a unifying model of crisis intervention, making it appropriate for front-line crisis workers-clinical psychologists, social workers, psychiatric-mental health nurses, and graduate students who need to know the latest steps and methods for intervening effectively with persons in acute crisis.

The author provides helpful guidance in "thinking through" how to do assessments in crisis situations. Discussion of the important differences between crisis assessment and other assessment, such as symptom and psycho/social history assessments clarify the process for students.
