5. Etymology: from Greek krisis, "turning point in a disease" (used as such by Hippocrates and Galen); literally, "judgment" from krinein, "to separate, to decide, to judge".
The sense of decisive moment is first recorded in English in 1627 as a figurative extension of the original medical meaning.
The main objectives of such crisis assistance procedures are to help people cope with their current problems and to offer guidance and support for long-term therapies.
There is no such thing as one criteria. "These are the criteria you must follow if you want to succeed."
Say "one criteria."
Use and misuse: the proper use of "criterion" is singular while "criteria" is the correct plural form. Misuse is "criterions" or "criterias" for the plural or "criteria" as a singular form.
