Bowker Data Service Summary
Phillip M. Kleespies and his colleagues provide clinicians with critical, evidence-based approaches for the evaluation and management of behavioural emergencies.
Main Description
In virtually every mental health clinician's career, a situation arises that requires immediate response: A client or patient presents who is suicidal, potentially violent, and/or at risk of being victimized. In such a situation considered a behavioral emergency the clinician may have little or no time to consult resources before responding. In this book, Phillip M. Kleespies and his colleagues provide clinicians with critical, evidence-based approaches for the evaluation and management of behavioral emergencies. This book makes clear the distinction between a behavioral crisis, which is a serious disruption of functioning that does not necessarily imply danger, and a behavioral emergency.
