Thoughts on early intervention

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The concept of early psychological intervention in response to traumatic events has been a compelling notion since World War I. Recently, its wisdom applied to mass disasters such as September 11 th, has been called into question. A review of relevant research reveals support for its continued utilization, but not without caution. Crisis intervention, in response to mass disasters, should consist of an integrated multi-component intervention system.
