This five-part book looks at the theory of crisis intervention and recent research applied to various populations (youth, the mentally ill, the chemically dependent, victims of violence, and health workers). It illustrates well how doctors can benefit from knowledge in ancillary areas. The editor, Albert R. Roberts, DSW, professor of social work at Rutgers University, is ably assisted (in the foreword and a chapter on crisis intervention with people having clinical diagnoses) by Ann Wolbert Burgess, RN, CS, DNSc, whose research is frequently cited by other authors (mainly social workers) throughout the book.
