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.

What does desperate mean?

(1) Being in need to the point of being beyond or very close to beyond hope...

(2) To be desperate is to be in an intense, powerful state of need and distress, tinged with encroaching despair, that arises from the certain knowledge that an absolute requirement for one's sanity, well-being, or even life, is highly unlikely to be met. A desperate person may take aggressive or self-endangering actions driven by this state. People in this state tend to be wild-eyed, disheveled, and unable to calm down or think/talk rationally.

How is grief counseling effective?

Most people are not well-acquainted with healthy ways of grieving. They may have had their ability to grieve stifled when young, or been told that they must "keep a stiff upper lip," or that they should "get over it." These are well-meant -- although unhelpful and unhealthy -- admonitions commonly given by friends and loved ones, who may be uncomfortable with the process themselves. In many cases they may be largely cultural. Nonetheless, they are not in the best interest of the person who needs to grieve.

A grief therapist gives the person permission to go through the grieving process and, through specially-designed therapy and exercises encourages them to do so in a healthy way.

What are the roles of a social worker in grief counseling?

A social worker is NOT a grief counselor and you had better watch what you say to them. They can offer you places to meet and choose and sometimes help pay a grief counselor if necessary. Maintain your composure where social workers and the state are involved. I am very sorry for the loss you are referring to. I really hope you are okay or whomever you are seeking an answer for. And I hope the social worker is okay too. Try to be responsible for whomever you choose to work the grief through yourself. It does work through you and you just have to identify what is happening in your mind and your body to identify what is happening to yourself. Dont forget the same thing is happening to others around you too. When responding to ideals and situations, dont make snap or haste reply's but dont take forever either. Let it work through you on its own schedule. You are a host to the feelings not the other way around. Its weird, I know. And I wish you the BEST!!! One thing about life I hate is that no one gets out alive. :( Life will go on. Give yourself a break frequently :)

Hope this helps you a little.

Should one call a priest for grief counseling?

It may be a good idea to call a priest for grief counseling. Some clergy members have a knack (and training) to provide grief counseling. At the least, these members of God's squad should be able to recommend someone who can help if they cannot. There are organizations that confront grief issues, and the American Cancer Society is just one. Any mental health organization should be able to provide references.

Grieving is a deeply personal process. It can be shared, but it's still about you. And it's not so much of "getting through it" as it is undergoing personal change as a result of it. The road map to personal change through a grief process is just thorny enough that someone with a bit of education and experience is probably a "best choice" for help. And a priest is a good place to start to find assistance.

What is the Future trends in crisis intervention?

There is no definite right or wrong answer for this because it relates to the future meaning it is a guess. We can only speculate about what future trends that may occur. My best guess is that crisis intervention methods may become more specified for each particular crisis and less generalized.Another guess is that there will be less resources to combat crisis due to funding issues.

What schooling is needed to be a grief counselor?

The following is by and according to the U.S. Department of Labor and particular to the education and training required for a counselor. Education and training requirements for counselors are often very detailed and vary by State and specialty. Prospective counselors should check with State and local governments, employers, and national voluntary certification organizations to determine which requirements apply. Education and training. Education requirements vary based on occupational specialty and State licensure and certification requirements. A master's degree is usually required to be licensed as a counselor. Some States require counselors in public employment to have a master's degree; others accept a bachelor's degree with appropriate counseling courses. Counselor education programs in colleges and universities are often found in departments of education or psychology. Fields of study include college student affairs, elementary or secondary school counseling, education, gerontological counseling, marriage and family therapy, substance abuse counseling, rehabilitation counseling, agency or community counseling, clinical mental health counseling, career counseling, and related fields. Courses are often grouped into eight core areas: human growth and development, social and cultural diversity, relationships, group work, career development, assessment, research and program evaluation, and professional identity. In an accredited master's degree program, 48 to 60 semester hours of graduate study, including a period of supervised clinical experience in counseling, are required. Some employers provide training for newly hired counselors. Others may offer time off or tuition assistance to complete a graduate degree. Often counselors must participate in graduate studies, workshops, and personal studies to maintain their certificates and licenses. Licensure. Licensure requirements differ greatly by State, occupational specialty, and work setting. Many States require school counselors to hold a State school counseling certification and to have completed at least some graduate course work; most require the completion of a master's degree. Some States require school counselors to be licensed, which generally requires continuing education credits. Some States require public school counselors to have both counseling and teaching certificates and to have had some teaching experience. For counselors based outside of schools, 49 States and the District of Columbia have some form of counselor licensure that governs the practice of counseling. Requirements typically include the completion of a master's degree in counseling, the accumulation of 2 years or 3,000 hours of supervised clinical experience beyond the master's degree level, the passage of a State-recognized exam, adherence to ethical codes and standards, and the completion of annual continuing education requirements. However, counselors working in certain settings or in a particular specialty may face different licensure requirements. For example, a career counselor working in private practice may need a license, but a counselor working for a college career center may not. In addition, substance abuse and behavior disorder counselors are generally governed by a different State agency or board than other counselors. The criteria for their licensure vary greatly and in some cases, these counselors may only need a high school diploma and certification. Those interested in entering the field must research State and specialty requirements to determine what qualifications they must have. Other qualifications. People interested in counseling should have a strong desire to help others and should be able to inspire respect, trust, and confidence. They should be able to work independently or as part of a team. Counselors must follow the code of ethics associated with their respective certifications and licenses. Counselors must possess high physical and emotional energy to handle the array of problems that they address. Dealing daily with these problems can cause stress. Certification and advancement. Some counselors elect to be certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors, Inc., which grants a general practice credential of National Certified Counselor. To be certified, a counselor must hold a master's degree with a concentration in counseling from a regionally accredited college or university; have at least 2 years of supervised field experience in a counseling setting (graduates from counselor education programs accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs are exempted); provide two professional endorsements, one of which must be from a recent supervisor; and must have a passing score on the board's examination. This national certification is voluntary and is distinct from State licensing. However, in some States, those who pass the national exam are exempted from taking a State certification exam. The board also offers specialty certifications in school, clinical mental health, and addiction counseling. These specialty certifications require passage of a supplemental exam. To maintain their certifications, counselors retake and pass the exam or complete 100 credit hours of acceptable continuing education every 5 years. The Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification offers voluntary national certification for rehabilitation counselors. Many State and local governments and other employers require rehabilitation counselors to have this certification. To become certified, rehabilitation counselors usually must graduate from an accredited educational program, complete an internship, and pass a written examination. Certification requirements vary, however, according to an applicant's educational history. Employment experience, for example, is required for those with a counseling degree in a specialty other than rehabilitation. To maintain their certification, counselors must successfully retake the certification exam or complete 100 credit hours of acceptable continuing education every 5 years. Other counseling organizations also offer certification in particular counseling specialties. Usually, becoming certified is voluntary, but having certification may enhance job prospects. Prospects for advancement vary by counseling field. School counselors can become directors or supervisors of counseling, guidance, or pupil personnel services; or, usually with further graduate education, become counselor educators, counseling psychologists, or school administrators. (psychologists and education administrators are covered elsewhere in the Handbook.) Some counselors choose to work for a State's department of education. Some marriage and family therapists, especially those with doctorates in family therapy, become supervisors, teachers, researchers, or advanced clinicians in the discipline. Counselors may also become supervisors or administrators in their agencies. Some counselors move into research, consulting, or college teaching or go into private or group practice. Some may choose to pursue a doctoral degree to improve their chances for advancement.

What are the five intervention principles in the management of the stress response?

Crisis intervention is a major factor in the management of human stress, and has four major principles. The first principle of crisis intervention is to mobilize a crisis intervention team which can act based on the specific details of the situation. The second principle is to differentiate the symptoms of acute stress from those that are not symptoms of stress. The third is that the intervention needs to be tailored to the needs of the person under acute stress. Finally, the fourth principle of stress crisis intervention is that the intervention's timing should be based on the readiness of the stressed person, rather than the passing of real time.

What are 4 things that could happen to you your body if you prolonged unmanaged stress?

(1) Immune system weakening...

(2) Cognitive functions decreasing

(3) Adrenal exhaustion

(4) Tendency to develop illnesses; chronic pain

And much more! External stresses (such as but not limited to extreme temperature fluctuation, adverse psychological conditions such as bullying & abuse, and scarcity of food and resources, to name but a few!) cause internal stress. And it happens to thousands of people in every city, and the countryside, every day. Our lifestyles encourage the very unhealthy condition of living under a near-constant flow of adrenaline! The sympathetic nervous system, active under stress, suppresses the activity associated with the functioning of the immune system. For example, the creation of antibodies takes place at a greatly reduced rate.

If stress is sustained for too long it will have adverse effects upon one's physical and emotional well-being. Things that can happen include adrenal exhaustion, weakened immune system, tendency to be susceptible to catching contagious illnesses, a weakening in the body's ability to fend off cancer, decrease in reproductive abilities, decrease in cognitive skills, exhaustion, exacerbation of existing health conditions, heart troubles, and eventually death if the source of the stress is not dealt with.

This is one of the reasons it needs to be taken seriously: our bodies were not meant to sustain the emergency state of high preparedness (fight-or-flight) for long intervals of time! Something's gotta give.
