When large-scale disasters occur, they typically strike without warninga "regardless of whether the cause is natural, such as a tsunami or earthquake, or human-made, such as a terrorist attack. And immediately following a hazardous event or mass violence, two of the most vulnerable groups at risk are a communitya (TM)s children and their family members. Promoting Community Resilience in Disasters offers both clinicians and researchers guidance on hazard preparation efforts as well as early response and intervention practices. It emphasizes an evidence- and prevention-based approach that is geared toward readiness, response, and recovery phases of natural and human-made disasters, examining such key topics as:

Establishing a community resilience framework

Reviewing current theory and research

Understanding the role for schools, youth, and families

Building a partnership and multidisciplinary perspective

Recognizing the importance of readiness and risk reduction

Providing public education and response during a crisis

Developing recovery programs that focus on physical and social factors

Setting evidence-based guidelines for practice

Establishing an interface between research and practice

Promoting Community Resilience in Disasters is specifically geared toward assisting those who work in school or community settingsa "including school psychologists and counselors, emergency managers and planners, and all mental health professionalsa "not only to increase resilience after a disaster, but to respond and intervene as quickly as possible when catastrophe strikes. It will assist those charged with the responsibility for helping others respond to and rebound from major traumas, especially clinicians and other professionals who work with children and their family members.
