This is an exciting course. Crisis Intervention Strategies is designed to provide some guidelines of intervention in order to promote self-growth and self-realization. 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 &Messik, 1982).
