Crisis and Trauma Intervention

While the vast majority of individuals think of a crisis as a traumatic event, in counseling terms it refers to how people cope with stressful experience. The events of a crisis our counselors deal with can vary and include terror attacks, natural disasters, bereavement grief and more. During these times, a counselor can step in to help individuals deal with the situation. Here are several interesting aspect about crisis counseling that most are surprised to learn of:

Roots Back to 1918

The idea behind our service has been around for a very long time, the modern practice of crisis counseling, however, is rather new. The roots of this practice date as far back as 1918 during the first world war where soldiers had to deal with what they had witnessed. Prior to this time, many soldiers suffered from various breakdowns and were viewed as disloyal to their country. It was noticed that those who received immediate counseling fared better than those who received no help at all.

It's Short Term

Unlike psychotherapy, our crisis counseling service is usually very brief and depending on circumstances, lasts anywhere from a few weeks to less than three months. The primary ideas behind counseling service is to assist individuals focus on the stressful issues, take care of their immediate needs, and provide them with then necessary coping skills so they can handle the same or similar situations in the immediate future. Our crisis counselors do not replace long-term therapy. Instead, they help the individual clients deal with the immediate effects of a crisis.

Counsellor Need Strong Ties

Frequently, clients who crisis counselors meet with will be in a state of withdraw or even shock. As a result, they will be an advocate for their clients and ensure those needs are met. Counselors may need to assist their clients apply for social services, find a place to stay, or contact friends or loved ones.

Children Need Different Care

While it come to crisis and trauma intervention for children, you can rest assured that My Caring Counselor has a complete perspective from their viewpoint. Although children and adults respond differently, children tend to act as if they’re in heavy fog, experience stomachaches and headaches, or act out emotionally. Since children don’t quite have the same vocabulary to express their feelings, our counselors use forms of therapy such as play therapy and art to help children identify their thoughts and reframe them.

We Have the Right Training and Experience

Here at Clayton Counseling we are well prepared and trained in correct protocol for handling crisis counseling. Our training includes knowing how to and when to call police or first responders. We work within set boundaries and parameters, how to deal with cultural differences and ethical practices.

Even though the idea behind crisis counseling is a fairly modern concept, many people are still unfamiliar with the field and it’s surprising and interesting aspects.
