'This third edition is as timely as the evening news. Dattilio and Freeman have included the most common themes in crisis intervention, describing techniques and strategies that are short term and time effective. The volume is 'a must read' for everyone from dedicated crisis workers and private practitioners to clinical researchers. Students and seasoned professionals alike will find practical and invaluable information within these pages. It is an unfortunate estimate that 70% of us will undergo a traumatic event in our lifetimes, and this masterful volume addresses the immediate needs of trauma survivors.' - Barbara O. Rothbaum, PhD, Trauma and Anxiety Recovery Program, Department of Psychiatry, Emory University School of Medicine, USA

'An international group of outstanding authors have crafted a remarkably useful guide to understanding traumatic experiences and using practical cognitive-behavioral strategies to help crisis victims. Methods for responding to diverse types of crises are clearly explained and illustrated. The chapters on disaster trauma and terrorism provide especially relevant guides to coping with some of the most troubling issues of our times. The case report of a 9/11 survivor is in itself a compelling reason to read this book.' - Jesse H. Wright, MD, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Louisville, USA

'I know of no better introduction to crisis intervention founded on empirically supported approaches to treatment. Cognitive-behavioral therapies represent the state of the art of crisis intervention services, and a superb array of authors have contributed chapters to this impressive third edition. All psychotherapists serving clients in crisis will find this book most useful and comprehensive. It would be a great text for the crisis intervention class we offer our second-year clinical MSW students.' - Bruce A. Thyer, PhD, College of Social Work, Florida State University, USAVom Verlag:
