Trauma & Crisis
Trauma & Crisis
MUST MEET DEADLINE
IN-TEXT CITATIONS ARE IMPERATIVE!
Over 80% of Americans will be exposed to a traumatic event and experience significant distress due to a crisis or critical incident. A crisis typically involves a temporary loss of coping skills, and causes significant impairment in nearly half of those exposed. Personal crises, such as death of family member or loss of a job, impact a person?s ability to function in everyday life and affect their relationships with their spouse, family, co-workers, friends and church members. Crisis response and crisis counseling are designed to help individuals cope with the stress or event they experienced and mitigate the threat of posttraumatic stress, critical incident stress and personal crises on the individual.
