Abstract

The environment in which rehabilitation counselors provide services to people with disabilities is changing to reflect changes in our society. Threats of violence have become a recurring feature of public service, including rehabilitation counseling. Counselors, supervisors, and administrators must seek an improved understanding of the dynamics of crisis and methods of effective response. The experience of a threatened counselor described in this report provided an opportunity to observe the sequential nature of adjustment to crisis. It is suggested that crisis theory can be useful for anticipating the response of threatened counselors and providing a conceptual framework to guide preparation for possible future threats.
