Abstract

Attempts to prevent or minimise psychological morbidity following traumatic events have resulted in calls for the routine provision of early psychological intervention for the victims of trauma. These calls are based on the hypothesis that the earlier intervention occurs, the less opportunity there is for maladaptive and disruptive cognitive and behavioural patterns to become established (Rachman, 1980). Early interventions are intuitively appealing and a response to perceived need, but do they work? This paper focuses on the evidence for the effectiveness of psychological debriefing (PD) which is probably the most widely advocated preventative intervention at present.
