Running head: CRISIS MANAGEMENT 2 Hybrid Model of Crisis Intervention The Model Crises occur many times in people’s lives. Crisis intervention is an immediate action whose main objective is to restore equilibrium to the biopsychosocial functioning of people in a crisis situation (Gilliland, & James, 2013). This kind of intervention is aimed at ensuring that people do not suffer from long-term psychological trauma. Crisis can be defined to be an individual’s perception of an intolerable difficulty that goes way beyond an individual’s resources and coping mechanisms. The hybrid intervention model gives priority to increasing stabilization. Crisis intervention occurs very fast and in quite different settings. The reason for this is that trauma can be instantaneous. Although crises are not permanent, they can have long-lasting effects. People in a crisis do not function as they would normally. Through the tasks involved in the hybrid model, the objective of the intervention is to restore the individual to their normal functionality while interrupting the maladaptive behaviour that individuals exhibit in times of crises. The crisis intervention model has been explained in various ways. Most of the earlier models for describing this model depict the model as exploring the problem, examining safety concerns, seeking support, examining available alternatives to the behaviour at hand, plan on equilibrium restoration, and gaining commitment to take action. However, these steps are no longer used for the model since there is an emphasis on the model being linear. The model refers to doing a task many times. It is easy to state linear plans but their execution is not easy (Myer, James, & Moulton, 2011).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
