GONZALEZ DE RIVERA Y REVUELTA, José Luis. Psychoterapy of the crisis. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2001, n.79, pp.35-53. ISSN 2340-2733.

Crisis is an acute stress syndrome, characterized by sudden break of the psychic continuity experience and by active response to a change process. Succes in this response favors personality development and integration, whereas failure carries the risk of total desestructuration. Therapeutic intervention has to consider the type and phase of the crisis, the personality and crisis experience of the subject, and the sociocultural conditions of the environment.

Keywords : crisis; psychotherapy; stress.
