The Persian Gulf war subjected the civilian population of Israel to 18 Scud-missile attacks over a period of six weeks. The purpose of this report is to outline the principles guiding community-wide emergency intervention and to examine the preventive proactive measures for children and parents undertaken by the school psychological services. In particular, the reorganization of the services to respond to the situation-specific conditions and the implementation of the intervention principles (outreach, immediacy, proximity, community, expectancy and continuity) are presented.
