Abstract/Excerpt

In a major consensus paper, Hobfoll et al. (2007) drew upon an extensive review of the disaster and mass violence literature to propose a core set of five empirically-supported foci for intervention in the early to mid-term post-trauma stages. These foci included promoting a sense of safety, calming, self and community efficacy, connectedness, and hope. The paper is notable for its integration of guiding theory and practical implications. The impact of this paper over the past 15 years (with over 1,300 citations to date) has been significant and widespread. Consistent with social psychologist Kurt Lewin’s (1943) maxim that “there is nothing as practical as a good theory,” the consensus paper illustrates the utility of a guiding conceptual framework for generating clear, logical, and practical implications for disaster planning and intervention.
