About the Authors
  • Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, disaster preparedness and response has developed into a discrete subspecialty in medicine, and the paramount health care initiative of the US Government. The mental health component of disaster response is a serious subject of study, as trauma is associated with a substantial and long-lasting psychologic burden, both on an individual and community level. The psychopathologies associated with disaster are also quite broad, varying from several different types of post-traumatic stress and anxiety disorders to acute variations of grief-associated depression. This book is the definitive reference on mental health and disasters, focused on the assessment and treatment of the full spectrum of psychopathologies associated with many different types of individual disasters. The logistics for utilizing pre-existing community-based mental health services, as well as the development of new programs, are covered in depth. Case studies and perspectives for improving care, incorporating lessons from Hurricane Katrina and 9/11, are included in detail.

    • Focused on the assessment and treatment of a full spectrum of psychopathologies associated with disasters
    • Case studies of recent disasters and corresponding research can be used by a variety of health care professionals
    • Illustrated with 100 charts, graphs, tables and diagrams

    'All of the chapters are excellent, but 2 are exceptional … This book is must reading for anyone involved in planning the mental health response to disasters … Mental Health and Disasters is encyclopedic in its coverage of essential topics.' Journal of the American Medical Association

    '… I liked the fact that the book has a forward-looking perspective … I commend this book without reservation. It is well written and the editors have achieved a good balance among the chapters. The authors are rigorous in their critical analysis of the research from which the data are derived, and they identify fruitful opportunities for researchers, practitioners and policy makers.' The British Journal of Psychiatry
