Mitigating the Impact of Disasters: From Trauma to Resilience

 

Following a disaster, Behavioral Health Organizations (BHO’s) routinely respond by assisting the clients they serve, their staff and their communities to recover from the inevitable psychological and emotional sequelae. Research in this area reveals three important factors: 1) individuals with behavioral health and trauma histories are among those most at risk for developing adverse reactions following a stressful event; 2) having a trauma history is quite common even among the general population; and 3) although most people will eventually “bounce back” from a disaster, many will initially exhibit stress reactions that may require some assistance. Individuals and communities can be better prepared to cope with these adverse events when there is general understanding of the impact of trauma, the skills to cope and needed resources and supports. Bringing an expertise in trauma and disaster trauma and recovery, this workshop presenter will assist Behavioral Health Organizations (BHO) to plan for and implement Trauma-Informed Care and resiliency building strategies that will benefit individuals and communities prior to and following a disaster.
