This course addresses the skills required to do so. Topics discussed include defining the nature of crisis, the search for coping mechanisms, and the types of crises encountered within I&R. It includes a crisis intervention model and the elements of a suicide risk assessment. The material is primarily geared for front-line staff at I&R services that handle the provision of service delivery to the public. It is not appropriate for crisis specialists but may be a practical primer for other professionals within health and human services.
