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.

In the United States, more than 30,000 deaths occur each year as a result of suicide. Each day, approximately 86 Americans will die by suicide. Suicide is now the 11th leading cause of death in the U.S., which is greater than the rate of death by homicide or AIDS-related deaths. This course will explore suicide risk that is associated with mental disorders, particular ethnic populations, and with regard to age (e.g., elders, children, adolescents and college-age adults). This presentation provides therapists techniques for developing suicide assessment protocols and treatment interventions, and in treating suicidal behaviors using a Dialectical Behavior Therapy model.

This presentation also includes information on assessing and treating children experiencing PTSD. Additionally, the concept of vicarious traumatization will be reviewed, including the potential impact on treatment and self-care techniques that therapists can employ to help mitigate the effects on both their personal and professional lives when working with clients diagnosed with PTSD.
