Psychological Debriefing May Not Be Clinically Effective: Implications for a Humanistic Approach to Trauma Intervention
Seely, Mark R.
Journal of Humanistic Counseling, Education and Development, v46 n2 p172 Fall 2007
Formal psychological debriefing in the wake of a traumatic experience seems to have no impact on the development of posttraumatic symptoms. This article addresses whether a more appropriate alternative would be a less-structured, more flexible humanistic approach to crisis counseling that encourages the use of trauma survivors' natural coping skills.
