Theories and Principles of Crisis Intervention Programs
They primarily include crises, accompanied by pathological or non-pathological situational reaction, psychogenic, including neurotic reactions, neurotic depression, and psychopathic reaction.
The basic education and training of school psychologists prepares them to provide a large range of diagnosis, assessment, intervention, prevention, health promotion, and program development and evaluation services with a special focus on the developmental processes of children and youth within the context of schools, families, and other systems. School psychologists are prepared to intervene at the individual and system level, and develop, implement, and evaluate preventive programs.
Lee is struggling to ensure that Julie certifies by signing that she will not avenge or commit suicide lest he is accused for negligence when Julie decides to go ahead with her mission. Holzgrefe and Keohane (2003) argue that, legal intervention of issues is comprehensive and effective because it leaves both the perpetrator and the victim satisfied no matter the outcome of resolutions since justice prevails (p.56). In this instance, Dr. Lee is in dilemma whether to undertake legal intervention or not, because Julie has declined to sign a contract to demonstrate that she is no longer going to avenge and commit suicide. Given that overweight and obesity coupled with bullying experiences predispose Julie to depression and subsequent suicidal feelings, it is imperative that interventions strategies target school environment. With this information, as a crisis worker, I would recommend students to receive counseling concerning bullying and stress management so that they can cope with distressing circumstances.
