What You See Is Not What You Get
White-McMahon, Meredith
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v19 n3 p58-61 2010
When upset, 15-year-old Peter overreacts, dumping verbal hostility on everyone, even those trying to help. Peter's attempt to see the principal--who was out of the office--led to an emotionally explosive crisis. In this life space crisis intervention (LSCI), staff calmly tried to help Peter clarify distorted reality. But patient questioning raised a Red Flag: the real reason for his distress was fear of being kicked out of his home which triggered violent and suicidal thoughts.
