Bringing together over 40 leading experts in disaster mental health, this essential volume presents practical clinical guidelines grounded in the best science available. The focus is on what first-responders, clinicians, and policymakers need to know about effective intervention in the immediate, intermediate, and long-term aftermath of large-scale traumatic events. Vital lessons learned from a variety of mass traumas and natural disasters are incorporated into the book's thorough review of strategies for helping specific victim and survivor populations. Of crucial importance, the authors clearly summarize the empirical evidence supporting each intervention and provide other guidance based on experience and consensus recommendations.
