She is the author of A GUIDE TO CRISIS INTERVENTION, 5th Edition; HUMAN SERVICE DELIVERY TO LATINOS, 2nd Edition; and AN OVERVIEW OF THE HUMAN SERVICES, 2nd Edition (with Melanie Horn-Mallers). Dr. Kanel was a practicing psychotherapist for over 25 years. Her experience as a counselor includes working at two non-profit agencies (the Anaheim Free Clinic and a battered woman's shelter), a public agency, a managed care organization, and in private practice where she worked with a multitude of client populations, specializing in trauma. Her most recent research has focused on the mental health needs and interventions for the veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Other research includes mental health needs of Latinos and crisis intervention practices.Review:
"The text is outstanding in the sequencing of material. It lays a wonderful foundation for understanding crisis, the importance of understanding cultural diversity, and the topics are relevant and current."
"I think Kanel's textbook is the most suitable material for an undergraduate crisis intervention course that I have found. The book's depth and scope make it appropriate for training of paraprofessionals outside of the college setting as well."
"The ABC model of crisis interventions provides a useful guideline for teaching about crisis intervention and specific steps to implement for students. My students found it helpful and felt they would use it professionally."
