I wrote this workbook because it disturbs me that a lot of individuals and communities are constantly living their lives in “Crisis Mode'' with little or no time and opportunity to realize their dreams. I believe a certain stigma is attached to those who are deemed by society (others) as always needing someone to rescue them from one crisis after another. Without naming names, I will say that for some this trend grows more prevalent with each passing generation.
I want my family and peers to realize that we do not have to live on the edge as though we lack a foundation (culture) to stand on. There inevitably is more to all of us than our struggles but until we get past having our finger on the “Panic Button” we will not get a chance to display our audaciousness.
I am confident that this “Crisis Counseling Workbook” can aid anyone whose life has gotten off track or who simply wants to succeed at creating a better life for themselves and their family, as well as improve the community they live in. “In the darkest hour, a pinprick of light is all that's needed to guide the lost home.” That said, please feel free to tweak this crisis counseling program to meet the particular needs and circumstances of those you are counseling.
