Yule, W. (2008). IASC Guidelines–generally welcome, but…. Intervention, 6(3), 248-251.

The author lauds the IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings as a remarkable achievement, but in his view they have not sufficiently used scientific evidence. The author also deplores that the concepts of ‘trauma’ and ‘traumatic stress’ remain underplayed and makes a case for early psychological group interventions, as well as for more specific attention to childhood mental disorders in general.
