Crisis Intervention for Community Behavioral Health Service Providers in Ohio
For licensed and unlicensed behavioral health service providers in Ohio, this manual will help you understand and respond to the needs of someone in acute crisis. It is informed by the community mental health context, including client experiences of poverty, trauma, and toxic stress. Crisis intervention is a complex service. It is not enough to avert a crisis; we must also work to examine and alter the contexts in which the crisis developed. Follows regulations as outlined by the state of Ohio.
This book is one in a series of clinical manuals developed by OhioGuidestone, the largest community behavioral health organization in Ohio, and based on its extensive experience with training new therapists and other behavioral health interventionists to work with clients who face severe, therapy-interfering challenges.
