Using non-parametric data evaluation, the effects of the intervention program me were examined for the treatment group (n= 43) and compared with a control group (n= 29). Results: The symptoms of post-traumatic stress were significantly reduced in the group which received crisis intervention and stress debriefing. Conclusions: These results are the first evidence of the effectiveness of the multi-component programme.
