Crisis Management Online Text-based Home Course (7 CE)

In stock

People of all ages, cultures and backgrounds can experience a crisis at some point in their lives, brought on by a variety of situations. Crisis situations are new, unpredictable obstacles that seem insurmountable and are psychologically paralyzing. Whether situational or developmental, crises catch a person unprepared and lacking a ready response.

This course contains an overview of a variety of crisis issues, such as violent people, violence within the family, child abuse, intimate partner abuse, dependent and elder abuse, and rape. Treatment strategies and techniques are presented for each of the aforementioned subjects. Also discussed are issues regarding hospitalization and involuntary confinement, as well as legal and ethical issues to consider in a crisis.
