Crisis Interrupted is a work of non-fiction that offers parenting guidance and was penned by author Lucy Pritzker. Subtitled as “A Parent's Guide to Residential Treatment for Children, Teens and Young Adults”, this concise and specific guide takes readers through an exploration of how residential treatment may benefit children and young people who are out of control at home, and what the options for such treatments are. From psychiatric care to rehabilitative facilities for addiction, therapeutic settings, and specialist boarding schools, author Lucy Pritzker gives clarity in a world with many options and encourages readers to ask important questions about their choice of facility and treatment before they decide.

When faced with very difficult decisions such as these, it is quite usual to seek many opinions, and author Lucy Pritzker has done a fantastic job of presenting a wide array of different information in a concise and accessible format. As a starting point for all forms of treatment, the author uses her expert knowledge in the field and takes the time to fully explain the options in a way that most doctors don’t have time to do in the consulting room. I found the layout and organization of the work to be clear and engaging, without being too overwhelming all at once. Any parent seeking independent expert advice will want to have this guidebook on hand as their starting point, and overall I would highly recommend Crisis Interrupted for parents seeking somewhere to turn during their time of decision making.
