Example text

As crisis agencies become crisis organizations, they gain more power, prestige, and notoriety. They tend to attract the attention of the human services professions because they offer fertile fields for funded research, placement of practicum and internship students, and employment of graduates. Crisis agencies sometimes attain eminent success, to the point that it becomes a vested interest of the human services professions to formalize the competencies of the personnel of such successful agencies through certification, licensure, and accreditation.

Developmental Theory. Because many crises have their bases in developmental stages that humans pass through, developmental theory must play a part in crisis intervention. Developmental stage theorists such as Erikson (1963), Levinson (1986), Levinson and Levinson (1996), and Blocher (2000) clearly believe that movement through various developmental life stages is critical. Developmental tasks that are not met and accomplished during particular life stages tend to pile up and cause problems. As individual needs and wants butt heads with the demands and expectations of society, and the individual fails to move on to the next life stage, the potential for crisis arises.

Choosing to do something at least contains the seeds of growth and allows a person the chance to set goals and formulate a plan to begin to overcome the dilemma. Universality and Idiosyncrasy Disequilibrium or disorganization accompanies every crisis, whether universal or idiosyncratic (Janosik, 1984, p. 13). Crisis is universal because no one is immune to breakdown, given the right constellation of circumstances. It is idiosyncratic because what one person may successfully overcome, another may not, even though the circumstances are virtually the same.
