Chapter 5 – The Intervention Set


At this point, we have combined an
understanding of the crisis state with an insight into people in crisis.  We have learned how to assess a crisis,
including ideas about its possible causes and effects.  We know how to involve the individual in the
process of understanding what is happening, what happened, and what is likely
to happen.  We are now ready to help the
individual move toward crisis resolution because we have an idea about the
possible causes and consequences of his specific crisis.  A superficially simple point is that crisis
resolution necessarily involves either changing those factors, situations, or
circumstances causing the crisis, or modifying the possible effects or outcomes
of the crisis.
