Even today, many who work in the training of counsellors speak fondly of the ‘Gloria Tape’, and it is sad to note that the woman at the centre of the excitement, who died in 1979, failed to realise the impact she had made on many young counsellors. In the field of psychological debriefing, there is no Pearls, Ellis or Rogers to lead the field and promote their own model of debriefing in the same self-serving style of the 1960s, but there are other contenders. I wonder, very wickedly, what would happen if Mitchell, Dyregrov and Parkinson were each offered one quarter of a traumatised group of soldiers and given 30 minutes to film their approach to debriefing!

3) Atle Dyregrov is the director of the Center of Crisis Psychology in Bergen, Norway. Much of his work has been focused on children and families. His debriefing model is a little more detailed than Mitchell’s, and perhaps shows his different psychological background. 4) Frank Parkinson worked for many years as an army chaplain and developed his own three-stage model of debriefing based upon his own experiences of dealing with soldiers who were traumatised by events in the Gulf War. The model, which is often referred to as ‘the three Fs’, is a slight variation again.

Four years after the incident, all 23 children were interviewed by Terr and her team and all continued to exhibit some signs of trauma. This included one child, Susan Zylstra, who had been let off the bus moments before the kidnapping. She was traumatised by the event (even though she was not kidnapped) and by the police interview conducted immediately after the incident. This kidnapping happened in the middle of the Bicentenary Year in the USA. Lenore Terr was the therapist who appeared to spend much of her career researching into how these children, and their families, coped with being held hostage for 27 hours.
