Early Psychological Intervention Following a Natural Disaster: A Study with a Victim Buried Under Rubble for 124 Hours
Abstract:This case study was focused on trauma treatment given to a man who was rescued after being buried for 124 hours under the rubble of buildings that had collapsed in the Wenchuan earthquake. The results of the study indicate that early psychological intervention is critical in preventing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and that social support is one of the most important factors in the treatment.
