Research Summaries
Brock, Stephen E., Ed.
Communique, v39 n6 p18-19 Mar-Apr 2011
This article presents summaries of three articles relevant to school crisis response: (1) "Factors Contributing to Posttraumatic Growth," summarized by Steve DeBlois; (2) "Psychological Debriefing in Cross-Cultural Contexts" (Stacey Rice); and (3) "Brain Abnormalities in PTSD" (Sunny Windingstad). The first summary reports the findings of a meta-analysis of the factors that contribute to positive outcomes following exposure to a crisis event (a must-read for all school crisis intervention team members). The second summary describes an article that discussed issues important to consider when providing group crisis interventions (e.g., psychological debriefing) in cross-cultural contexts. Finally, the third summary reports the findings of a meta-analysis that explored differences in brain size associated with trauma exposure and PTSD.
