Disaster Phases The following section provides guidelines for interventions at different social levels at different times, using the principles in 6.1. Because assessments and interventions overlap, many principles applicable to assessments at different social levels also apply to interventions. For instance, interventions in communities need to be applied taking into account the nature of the community, its mood, morale and culture and organised and applied at different hierarchical levels. Similarly, interventions are applied as necessary to all family members, even if one member is chosen to symbolise family distress and techniques with children may use play and drawing. Like assessments, interventions are informed by the triaxial framework. Thus interventions in all groups which follow are tailored to adaptive and maladaptive biological, psychological and social responses and include dimensions ranging from the survival strategy responses to spiritual issues.
