Several specific issues related to trauma are described in Crisis Intervention and Trauma, including substance abuse, partner abuse, the elderly, and workplace violence, especially the relationship between abuse and reproductive issues, a topic that has not received much attention in the past. Hillman provides a thorough discussion of critical incident stress management (CISM). However, she presents a primarily pro-CISM view. Such a stance may be contrary to the goal of this book, which has a focus on evidence-based treatment, because there has been increasing evidence and debate on the effectiveness of CISM. Hillman provides a fairly descriptive narrative on how CISM is conducted. However, some readers may try to conduct CISM on the basis of this reading. It would have been better if the author had qualified the chapter with a statement that the section is not intended to teach CISM.
