|Over the last fifteen years, psychological interventions such as Psychological debriefing have been increasingly used to treat psychological trauma. Psychological debriefing was designed for groups of individuals exposed to traumatic events to improve their emotional well-being at the time and to prevent or minimize subsequent mental disorder (particularly PTSD). The effectiveness of Psychological debriefing and other early interventions remains one of the most contentious areas of mental health research. Few observations state that Psychological debriefing worsens symptoms and there is a debate on the research and practice of Psychological debriefing.
International Journal of Emergency Mental Health and Human Resilience is one of the top indexed journals on Psychological debriefing. All published articles of this journal are included in the indexing and abstracting coverage of PubMed, MEDLINE, PscycINFO, and EBSCO.
