About the Authors
  • This book is one of the first to describe the field of disaster mental and behavioral health. Directed at fostering resilience and recovery, the authors emphasize planning and early intervention to lessen mental illness, distress, and health risks. Psychological first aid is discussed, as well as the potential role of psychopharmacology and the relevance of culture in the setting of the disaster. This is essential reading for mental health clinicians, along with educators and students in the increasing numbers of educational programs relating to the preparation and response to mass trauma and disaster situations. It should also be read by policy makers and public health specialists who must understand the impact of disaster on the person and the systems in which we live.

    • Describes the field of disaster mental and behavioral health and fosters resilience and recovery
    • Includes contributions from outstanding international experts in one volume with up-to-date in-depth analysis of the topic
    • Features a CD-ROM showing the original presentations from the conference on which the book is based

    Reviews & endorsements

    "A contributor list that amounts to a pantheon of what can rightfully be called "disaster psychiatry superheroes" and a book that permits the rest of us to bask in the glow of their wisdom....Several chapters forge especially new ground in disaster psychiatry....Intervention and Resilience After Mass Trauma affords current practitioners and scholars of disaster psychiatry a chance to check in with the experts and, when the dust is not flying, reflect on crucial concepts and challenges in the field. For readers who are new to disaster psychiatry, this book is not a "how-to" handbook or manual, but it will immerse you in the thick of the field's major issues."
    --Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
