 Fundamental principles of crisis intervention

Dear PoliceOne Member,

Last week, we featured a column by PoliceOne Contributor Larry Miller in which he examined many of the facts and fictions associated with suicide, as well as some of the warning signs to watch out for when you come into contact with citizens who might have suicidal tendencies. If the warning signs have been missed, the first chance to intervene with a depressed, suicidal subject may come when the crisis is already peaking. This week, Larry offers some solutions you can use to work the problem when you encounter that suicidal subject. Check it out below.

The suicidal subject: Fundamental principles of crisis intervention
By Laurence Miller, PoliceOne Contributor
The intervener’s task is to keep the suicidal subject alive long enough to get appropriate care. Without seeming manipulative, the intervener should encourage the subject to put even a few short steps between the idea of self-destruction and the act itself ... Make a plan and obtain commitment
