PAA Disaster Response Network Lunch and Learn Recording V


PAA Disaster Response Network (DRN) activates when an Alberta emergency is determined to be a disaster. Psychologists are invited to join this lunch and learn to get the most up-to-date information about PAA DRN protocols, logistics, and disaster trauma treatment basics.

“Psychologists help those in disaster circumstances to build their skills of resilience to move from feeling helpless to having a more long-term, realistic perspective. The process can include taking small steps toward concrete goals and connecting with others as they learn to cope with disaster’s logistical and emotional challenges”. (APA, April 2014)
