What Jobs Are There in “Crisis Counseling”?

Question by Marcus: What Jobs Are There In “Crisis Counseling”?
I am currently a clinical psych major and am interested in doing some sort of crisis counseling (handling suicide attempts, self-harm, extreme depression, etc.) What sort of jobs are available for this? (Non-volunteer jobs.)

Best answer:

Answer by JoAnn
To be hired for true crisis counseling you will need more credentials and a license. Crisis counseling can be part of a life or death situation so hiring a non-licensed person to do it increases the risk to the consumer, the risk of liability to the agency, and its probably illegal as well. You may be able to get a case management job at a non-profit like a women’s center, rape crisis center, or that doesn’t require a license. You will get invaluable experience there.
