Recognizing the importance of PFA in the present and future, we are republishing the article, “Five Essential Elements of Immediate and Mid-Term Mass Trauma Intervention: Empirical Evidence.” (Hobfoll et al., 2007) and updating it with commentaries by Stevan Hobfoll and many of the coauthors of the original article and other leaders in the field of disaster and crisis mental health care. Many of the eleven commentaries are written through the lens of the COVID-19 pandemic.
