Effective crisis intervention prevents situations from escalating to the point where there are limited options and unnecessary and expensive impatient hospital treatment. Crisis intervention is immediate and short-term and sometimes the only service an individual experiencing a crisis needs. Effective crisis intervention should empower people by teaching then effective self-governing and coping skills such that they become more self-aware, self-reliant, and less dependent upon external resources.
