In our society individuals face crisis situations regularly. From the beginning of life to its conclusion in death, a spider in the bathtub or an unkind remark, life moves from one crisis to another. Some things cause small emotional disturbances while others cause permanent psychological damage. What ever the cause, no crisis is small to the person going through it, and finding the resolution can become an all-consuming task. The problem of dealing with such emergencies is not new. Every generation has had to grapple with crises.
