Workshop 12 (ticket)
Disaster Psychiatry: The State of the Field

Attention to disaster psychiatry continues to expand. Child and adolescent psychiatrists who wish to serve in disasters need to gain an understanding of disaster systems, public risk communication, and psychological first aid. The Workshop reviews the types and phases of disasters and systems of disaster response; and discusses the importance of disaster training and credentialing. Through the use of interactive scripts and discussion, participants learn how to prepare for disasters; the guidelines for public communication; how to evaluate, intervene, and, where appropriate, treat children and families at different phases post disaster. Ethical and legal considerations are covered; and credentialing sources are identified.
