Question Description

The ABC Model of Crisis Intervention is broken down into three stages.

The first stage is developing and maintaining rapport. After reading this section in the text on pp. 50–58, explain what skills you will need in this area, what is the reason that a crisis-intervention worker needs these personal skills, and how do these skills help the client?
