For the most part, this is just another new edition in which the publishers switched a few chapters around and changed some dates. If you must have this text, save some money and buy the sixth edition from a private seller. Also, don't waste your time reading the entire chapter, you can get the main concepts in the chapter summary.

I wish I could afford to buy this book because there is SOOO much information that I want to review. Instead, I rented it which works out for me financially. This book makes crisis intervention strategies easy to understand and provides real-life examples. Awesome!

This book has excellent intervention strategies and theories when working with victims who experienced trauma. There are many types of trauma and this book goes in depth regarding traumatic experiences.

First of all, I want to be clear that I think the book itself is awesome, and if you're lucky enough to have this as assigned reading for a class, I think it's a great textbook. I can't be 100% sure because I didn't investigate it beyond a page or two, but if you Google search this book, I think you can find it for free online in its entirety. But, if you have to have a copy (I'm one of those people) please think long and hard before you get the Kindle version of this book. I had surgery on my right wrist (and happen to be right handed) and it is painful for me to write notes. One of the reasons I made the switch to Kindle textbooks was because I could highlight my notes, and then go into the Kindle app on my laptop, copy and paste the notes onto a Word document, and print my notes without the pain (and a lot of time) of having to hand-write all my notes. However, this book is formatted so poorly that I think it almost takes more time to do this than it would to just hand write my notes. Copying and pasting should be simple. But the book is formatted into two columns per page, so when you paste, it doesn't format properly, and you have to spend a lot of extra time formatting the notes correctly.
So far I have purchased or rented 7 Kindle textbooks, and this one has been the worst one by far. If you have the extra money, either rent a hard copy or buy one because unless you plan to only read the book and not do any copying and pasting of your notes, it is quite a hassle.

Good luck!
