With deinstitutionalization and the move from large congregate care facilities to community-based settings, came about the need to alter the way services are provided to persons with intellectual disabilities. Crisis services - preventing and minimizing dangerous and destructive behaviors, and responding to crisis situations when they do occur - is one such service that has emerged as a nationwide priority. This book examines the challenges of community systems, state and regional networks of crisis prevention and response, and presents specialized programs designed for persons with special needs.
