Disaster Trauma: Promoting Resilient Individuals, Organizations, and Communities

Over the past fifteen years, the research and literature on disaster trauma has exploded, primarily following 9/11. We know of multiple approaches to prevent and mitigate the adverse effects of a disaster or any crisis situation on people. The five key elements involved in promoting resilience after an adverse event are: safety, comfort, self-efficacy, connectedness and hope so how can we insure that we are promoting these in our everyday work within and outside our organizations? As Mental Health and Addictions providers, you play a significant role in helping people heal and recover following such events with your own consumers, with members of the affected community and with your own staff. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of specific strategies and approaches that can be used to address the needs of each of these populations following an adverse event. These same approaches can be used prior to an event to build resilience and prevent some from experiencing serious reactions. Strategies include training staff on Psychological First Aid and Trauma Informed Care; reaching out into your surrounding communities to teach Mental Health First Aid and spread Trauma Informed Care; and setting up systems within your organizations to improve staff competence, confidence and support.
