Crisis Intervention and Management (formerly Crisis Intervention Skills)

Crisis is both the presence of danger and the opportunity for change. “Crisis is a danger because it can overwhelm the individual to the extent that serious pathology including homicide and suicide may result. Crisis is also an opportunity because the pain it induces impels the person to seek help”, Aguilera & Messick (1982). The experience of crisis is a normal response to overwhelming experience.

Advanced Applications in Narrative Therapy #1: Externalising Problems and Developing Preferred Identities

‘The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem’ is one of the central tenets of narrative theory and is most vividly expressed through ‘externalising practices’.
