According to James and Gilliland (2013), critical incidents, that is crises , can be viewed as both a danger and as an opportunity. While crisis tends to be seen primarily as a negative occurrence, a lot of insight, growth, and change can result from these situations; however, the exact opposite can take place without the proper response from knowledgeable and caring professionals. There are countless critical incidents that can precipitate and constitute crisis, trauma, and disaster. As a future mental health professional, I will undoubtedly respond to numerous crisis situations throughout my career and I have a responsibility to not only my profession, but also the clients I work with to have the foundational knowledge and training to effectively respond to survivors of critical incidents and emergencies. Crises tend to be very complex and they can impact individuals, families, communities, countries, and potentially the entire world given the right circumstances (James & Gilliland, 2013). Seeger, Sellnow and Ulmer (1998), outlined three elements common to a crisis, which included: a threat to the individual or organization, the element of surprise, and a limited amount of time to make a decision. Crisis results from stress and tension and the purpose of crisis intervention is to interrupt the downward spiral, quickly and skillfully, thus returning an individual, or group, to a pre-crisis level of coping (Greenstone & Leviton, 2002). For the purpose of this project, I will examine and be discussing three different types of crisis that can impact a family, community, and nation. As a final point, I will explain conclusions I have drawn from completing this course and concluding with this final project.
Crisis 1: Family Crisis (Intimate Partner Violence Domestic Assault)
Description of Crisis
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is serious social problem those in the helping profession are likely to encounter due to its prevalence, not only in our society, but throughout the world. According to Barnett, Miller-Perrin and Perrin (2005), IPV includes physical violence, sexual violence, threats of physical or sexual violence, psychological or emotional violence, and stalking; when a current or former partner uses intimidating threats and behaviors, ultimately resulting in a person being injured, stressed, scared, controlled, or traumatized, that is abuse. Being the victim of a violent domestic assault fits the criteria for a behavioral emergency making swift intervention profound in ones recovery. According to James and Gilliland (2013), A behavioral emergency occurs when a crisis escalates to the point that the situation requires immediate intervention to avoid injury or death(p.8).
Critical Incident Assessment
As James and Gilliland (2013) pointed out, assessment in IPV is highly complex due to its transcrisis nature and crisis workers will come into contact with victims of in a variety of circumstances and settings making point of assessment variable. Rarely does it seem victims reach out for help following an isolated incident of violence, and many survivors of IPV Ive worked with have stated they failed to realize what was happening inside their relationship, aside from physical assault, was classified as abuse. I volunteered as a domestic violence advocate at a non-profit organization for many years and part of my responsibilities in that role was to answer a 24/7 crisis line. Most of my contact with victims of IPV followed an incident of physical violence that involved law enforcement and the arrest of the perpetrator.

Short and Long-Term Effects
Counselor Competencies
Cultural, Ethical and Legal Implications
When working with an individual and/or family impacted by IPV in any capacity, it will be important for the counselor to address limitations of confidentiality, since abuse has occurred in their home. This is an especially important point if children are residing in an abusive home. According to Remley and Herlihy (2010), every state has a statute requiring counselors to report cases of suspected child abuse and neglect. Mandated reporters can be any professional who in the ordinary course of their work and because they have regular contact with children or other identified vulnerable populations, are required to report whenever financial, physical, sexual or other types of abuse has been observed or is suspected, or when there is evidence of neglect, knowledge of an incident, or an imminent risk of serious harm (Kalichman, 1999).
