IntroductionThe case of crisis that has been identified here is about a mother who is not being given thecustody of her child due to some unknown reason. This situation has led to increased personallife crisis for her. The crisis is the time of intense trouble, danger or difficulty. Words associated with the crisisinclude disaster, emergency, calamity, and catastrophe. Crisis intervention is consideredemergency psychological care aimed at assisting individuals in a crisis situation to restoreequilibrium to their bio-psychosocial functioning and to minimize the potential for psychologicaltrauma (James and Gilliand, 2012). The hybrid model of Crisis assists a crisis intervener tostabilize a situation of crisis. In different states, the crisis is known by different names like, in theUK it is known as a hazardous event while in China it is known as opportunity and danger. TheWorld is dynamic in nature which is always on changing phase; these changes happen rapidly.Due to these changes, families are thrown into chaos over isolation, unemployment, illness, andalcohol abusers (Douglas et al, 2014). Before all these things man-made hardships can beobserved, there are environmental forces, genetic forces and natural disasters that give birth tovarious crises in life. Building resilience, information and practice are required for everyone tomanage Crisis (Chen, 2013). In this paper, we will discuss the “Women Losing Custody of Childfrom the Crisis Intervention” and also apply the hybrid model to the Crisis examples. This willbe done through specific examples of intervention, and also some examples of listening skills.Crisis has several characteristics, few of them are following:SpecificUnexpectedCreates uncertaintyThe causes of the crisis are many and unknown. Thus, it is difficult for the manager to take arational decision immediately to reverse the crisis situation.Hybrid model of Crisis InterventionThe hybrid model is used mostly for certain crisis interventions; it is applied in a way to ensurehelp to a person in crisis. As we have learned, the crisis is not predictable. Therefore, applying alinear model as the hybrid model of crisis intervention requires some necessary steps to befollowed for managing the crisis efficiently (James et al, 2013). Hybrid model tasks can befulfilled at any time in the intervention and at times may require being re-accomplished atanother period of the intervention. Hybrid mode is considered as the hub around which all thestrategies related to the crisis intervention revolve and tasks are designed to operate as anintegrated problem-solving process (Chang and Tsai, 2016). The main purpose behind designingthe hybrid model is to enhance the previous linear approach to crisis intervention. Afterconsistently studying the various crises, it has become apparent that crisis does not occur step bystep in order (Mustafee et al, 2015). The hybrid model looks every crisis example in a differentmanner. As per this, crises are considered disorganized and chaotic and swiftly transition fromone place to another place. As per the hybrid model, crises are looked in a more realistic fashion,

and it allows the Crises Intervention Team and worker to move from chaos by reducing taskswhich allow more therapeutic innovation and result in increased options for resolution. The hybrid model is a combination of tasks which can be performed in numerical order fromTask 1 to Task 7, or all these tasks can be completed as the crisis dictates. The end result of thehybrid model completely depends on the efficiency of the workers and the Crisis ManagementTeam (Hendricks and Hendricks, 2014). For this, Crisis management team should formulate arealistic plan for the future to prevent the occurrence of the same crisis again and again. Thismodel identifies the situation and the clients as a continuous task and that the worker is fullyinvolved in throughout the crisis. For effective management of the Crisis, the clients gather allthe required information about the client, client's feedback to the crisis, and the number of peopleinvolved. The process related to the assessment of the client is continuous. This process fulfillspotential for an infinite number of responses (Kanel, 2014). After dealing with the situation, it isnecessary for the worker to develop a reasonable conclusion. Hybrid crisis model does not"force-feed" an assessment of the situation of the crisis. For conducting a sound assessment,hybrid model provides situational material to the worker through which conclusion formulationcan be done efficiently. It is not a complex model and is simple to implement, adaptable and easy to use. Hybrid modelconsists of following steps:- 1.Predispositioning / Engaging / Initiating ContactIt is usually the first and the foremost task of the model. Most of the systems like armedforces and government agencies such as FEMA utilize pre-dispositioning to get supplies,equipment, and personnel ready to meet some future emergency. During the Crisis, it isvery critical for a person to build a relationship of communication with other person(James and Gilliand, 2012). All the true facts of the situation help in understanding theclient's demand and needs, as well as it also helps in identifying the intentions of theworkers to help them. 2.Problem explorationThe second task of the Hybrid model is problem exploration. This task is about thediscussions of how the client is feeling in the situation and can help the client in definingthe crisis from their point of view. This task evaluates and finds out the various aspectslike how the client was affected due to the situation, what they need, and their feelings.The workers measure the importance of what, when, who, where, and why questions.3.Providing supportThis task of the hybrid model provides logistical, social, psychological and informationalsupport. It is considered very important for a person going through a crisis, be heard, totalk, to listen and have someone who can understand their feelings. Support to the clientcan be provided in the best manner by discovering their needs and assisting them in aproper manner.4.Examining AlternativesThe fourth task of the Hybrid model is about examining the various available alternatives.In this task various alternative supports which are required by the clients are identified.
