Efforts to minimize long-term psychological morbidity following natural disaster have resulted in calls for the psychological interventions for survivors. These calls are based on the assumption that the earlier intervention occurs, the less opportunity for maladaptive and disruptive cognitive and behavioral patterns. In response to these calls, many disaster’s first responders have used Psychological Debriefing (PD) intervention following this traumatic event. Even though PD is frequently discussed in Western studies, yet, it is not deliberately explain in Malaysian disaster literature. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to discuss the importance of Psychological Debriefing Intervention and it implications on post disaster management in Malaysia. Different types of PD models are presented and several components that influence the process of psychological debriefing are discussed with emphasis on Malaysian cultural perspective. It is suggested that the continued exploration and discussion is critical in developing Psychological Debriefing Model that suitable for Malaysian culture.
