This chapter gives us a clear picture of how, in the right circumstances, crisis intervention and the crisis theory on which it is based can be a highly productive approach that can help to bring about very positive results in a short period of time. It is based on the idea that a crisis, as a turning point in someone’s life, is a situation in which things will either get better or get worse. If they stay the same, then, by definition, it is not a crisis. Crises generate energy and motivation that can be channelled into bringing about positive change and learning. Crisis intervention is therefore geared towards capitalizing on that energy and motivation to make progress in addressing problems and challenges.
