I believe one of the most important objectives of PFA is to stabilize survivors or victims - often by providing some psychological comfort to their distress. This should be followed up by an assessment of their needs and listening to their concerns - if one cannot provide for their needs (PFA is not only provided by psychologists but can be undertaken by social workers, emergency officers and in case of mass disasters by lay persons - preferably with the appropriate training!) no vain promises should be made but the PFA provider should seek to properly orientate the person being assisted to the right professionals and/or institutions. This means more appropriate care can then be provided to the people in need whether this is information on next steps, their rights, services available and/or further psychosocial, medical or judicial support.
I have provided PFA to mass casualties upon armoury explosions in the outskirts of the mozambican capital back in 2007 and from 2013 to 2020 at the Coroner's Office - in Mozambique, all the reported victims of crime, have the right to be assisted by a psychologist after the medico-legal examination - I consider this a major achievement in an under developed country - I have travelled a bit worldwide and very few countries had this feature implemented within their justice systems.
