Grief Counseling and Crisis Intervention

Grief counseling is a therapy that helps a person get through times of deep sadness, such a loss of a child, divorce, or other major life change. Grief counseling can be long term, and follows up with the patient through many stages. Crisis intervention is closely related, but is more immediate. It helps when a sudden, but usually tragic, event occurs in a person's life. Crisis intervention will come in right away after a natural disaster, mass shooting, rape incident, or other emergency situation where a person (or many people) will be in a state of shock. They will teach them coping skills and let them know they are supported. Unlike grief counseling, crisis intervention is usually only a couple of sessions, long enough to get the victim though the worst of the events. It is often followed by grief counseling.
