Crisis Intervention for Suicidal Thinking, Students in Crisis, Manic Episodes, & More

Ask the Doctor October 3, 2019

Crisis intervention is an effective strategy for providing immediate help to someone in extreme distress. However, knowing how to properly execute crisis intervention tactics can be tricky when a crisis unexpectedly arises. In this week’s Ask The Doctor session, clinical and forensic neuropsychologist Dr. Judy Ho walks through effective intervention strategies for different types of crises.

Key takeaways from this week’s call include the following:

  • How to support a friend who admits to having thoughts of suicide - both short- and long-term
  • How to help someone who’s having a panic attack
  • What strategies teachers can use to help a student through a crisis
  • What effective intervention strategies to use for an adult child who is still living at home
  • How to effectively communicate with someone when they’re in the middle of a manic episode

Crisis intervention strategies are most frequently used by frontline workers like firefighters, police officers, emergency medical personnel, nurses, physicians and other hospital workers. However, these strategies are incredibly beneficial for anyone who’s ever had to help a friend or loved one through a crisis.
