Crisis and Disaster Counseling: Lessons Learned from Katrina and Other Disasters is a core textbook that addresses crisis mental health by examining three major crises/disasters that have occurred in the last decade: Hurricane Katrina, Virginia Tech, and September 11. An overview of the disaster response field is highlighted by focusing on current theoretical perspectives which have provided a framework for culturally and ecologically appropriate interventions. Case studies in each chapter discuss evidence based practice approaches that show appropriate interventions. This book features a practical, skill-building approach.
