Preparation, Action, Recovery: A Conceptual Framework for Counselor Preparation and Response in Client Crises
McAdams, Charles R.; Keener, Harry J.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v86 n4 p388-398 Fall 2008
Despite increasing requirements for counselor proficiency in crisis response, there is an absence in the standards for counselor preparation, certification, and supervision of consistent criteria on which best practice in crisis prevention and intervention, and postcrisis recovery can be gauged. The authors present a conceptual framework that defines the actions required at the different phases of a client crisis and identifies potential constraints to effective counselor action that must be acknowledged and overcome at each phase.
