Crisis intervention from a criminal justice perspective.

 

Crisis Intervention: The Criminal Justice Response to Chaos, Mayhem, and Disorder introduces readers to the methods and techniques of crisis intervention employed by police and correctional officers. Rather than focusing on abstract theories, this text presents real-life situations first and then explores the theories and methods relevant to those situations. It goes beyond the simple presentation of facts and incorporates best practices of policing and other topics usually found only in police training manuals. The text also examines the psychological effects of crisis on criminal justice professionals and ethical considerations related to crisis response.
