Abstract

Crisis intervention is a method used by psychologist, counsellors, social workers and helpers to handle crisis issues. It is an immediate and short-term psychological aid to help disruptions and disequilibrium individual. Crisis intervention aims to support individual with mental health crisis and stabilise or restore equilibrium to normal functioning. Some issues and challenges arise among crisis counsellors or helpers. Educating individual with crisis can be the hardest tasks if they are not well prepared. Professionalism and ethical issue creates challenges among helpers. Challenges such as religiosity, culture, beliefs and values among helpers and individual in crisis will create a new crisis if not handle professionally. As suggestions, helpers in crisis setting need to improve and adapt their knowledge, experience and skills in handling different types of crisis and as well in different cultures. Helpers need to be creative and try avoiding a one-size-fit all approach to crisis intervention.
