What the crisis is?
A crisis is a normal reaction of a healthy person for the circumstances which overwhelmed
( job change, excess responsibilities, divorce, mobbing, burnout, lack of purpose in life etc.)
In mental health terms, a crisis refers not necessarily to a traumatic situation or event, but to a person’s reaction to an event. One person might be deeply affected by an event while another individual suffers little or no ill effects.
We often think of a crisis as a sudden unexpected disaster, such as a car accident, natural disaster, or another cataclysmic event.
Signs of a Crisis
Common signs of a mental health crisis include:
- Changes in weight
- Decreased performance at school or work
- Dramatic shifts in sleep habits
- Neglect of personal hygiene
- Sudden changes in mood
- Withdrawal from normal activities
Crisis councelling is not intended to provide psychoteraphy but instead to offer short-term intervention to help clients receive assistance, support, resources, and stabilization
CRISIS BRINGS DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL – working under the supervision of a specialist on yourself in a state of crisis leads to making a number of developmental decisions, e.g. after a divorce or breakup – putting your life in order, suddenly taking care of yourself, fulfilling your dreams, etc.
