Mental Health and Mass Violence: Evidence-Based Early Psychological Intervention for Victims/Survivors of Mass Violence, A Workshop to Reach Consensus on Best Practices [open pdf - 1MB]
"At a workshop held from October 30 to November 1, 2001, 58 disaster mental health experts from six countries were invited to address the impact of early psychological interventions and to identify what works, what doesn't work, and what the gaps are in our knowledge. Prior to the workshop, leading mental health research clinicians from the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom prepared a review of the published, peer-reviewed literature (tables appear in Appendix G and references appear in Appendix I). For the purpose of this workshop and report, an early intervention is defined as any form of psychological intervention delivered within the first four weeks following mass violence or disasters. Once established, services may remain in place for the long term."
