Editorial Reviews

Review

"My graduate students over the years have used People in Crisis for learning how to understand and respond appropriately to multiple personal, national, and international crises faced by people for whom we provide care. The focus on cultural sensitivity and resilience are wonderful additions to the text." - Betty D. Morgan, associate professor in the department of nursing at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, USA

"The author’s wisdom concerning crisis, suffering, resilience, and recovery leads the reader into the spiritual realm, with a collective call to genuinely treat each "other" with greater compassion, tolerance, and care. People in crisis can thereby realize their potential for true healing and growth." - Paul Del Bel, psychiatric social worker, Alameda County Behavioral Health Care Services, Oakland, California, USA

"For twenty-five years I have required People in Crisis in my classes because it is the ideal text for students to understand crisis theory and intervention. Those who become practitioners readily apply what they learn from it." - Dennis Kane, adjunct instructor in interdisciplinary studies at the State University of New York at Buffalo, USA

"Lee Ann Hoff’s exploration of the social, political, economic, cultural, and ecological roots of crisis will inspire frontline crisis workers to actively participate in social justice causes that foster crisis prevention. Prepare to be challenged and rewarded!" - Glenda Dubienski, seminarian at Providence Seminary and co-founder of Hopethiopia

I am currently in graduate school for Community Mental Health Counseling for children, adolescents and families. This book is a required read but I have found it to be quite interesting and full of knowledge for my clinical class II. In our field crisis can be an everyday experience for the population we serve. What a great knowledgeable read.
