Crisis Intervention Specialist
What is a crisis intervention specialist?
A crisis intervention specialist works with at-risk individuals to prevent a crisis situation. A CIS has essential interpersonal skills including focus, understanding and empathy based responses. A CIS character's expresses respect, genuineness, and acceptance. A truly non-judgmental and sensitive nature are required.
While people think a crisis as something that happens to someone, there is more to it. A crisis actually is how a person reacts to a situation or life event. If someone is unable to process using generally accepted coping or processing techniques, a crisis intervention could become necessary.
Crisis intervention is a short term goal approached treatment. Counselors give the extra support and encourage needed through the crisis. Crisis intervention therapy encourages the open expression of feelings and experiences without reprisal. Treatment end goals include reducing tension, guilt, and anxiety to normal pre-crisis levels.
