Personal crises and increased vulnerability to addictive chemicals and behaviors can stem from any event or situation that a person perceives as intolerable, the key word being perceives.

In your role as a helping professional, remember that events that seem benign to you may constitute a crisis in a client's life. If a client perceives himself or herself to be in a crisis, whether you agree or not, the client is probably in a crisis and needs your professional assistance. There are a number of crisis intervention models available, and you should choose the model that seems to be most effective.

Post a description of at least two factors outside an individual's control that could result in a perceived crisis and explain how that perception may affect propensity toward addiction. Then describe a model of crisis intervention that might be most effective in addressing these factors and explain why. Support your response using the Resources and the current literature.
