Abstract

Proposes an alternative approach to crisis intervention in response to that described by D. Dallas (see record 1979-09745-001) for the case of a patricide. The alternative centers on the need for community psychologists (1) to demonstrate caution and humility, (2) to specify and assess their services, (3) to respect and take advantage of the competencies and healing powers already existing within a community, and (4) to weigh in advance the possible detrimental impact and potential benefits of their interventions.
