Being There When It Counts : Proceedings of the 8th Annual Rocky Mountain Disaster Mental Health Conference. by Doherty, George W.;
Cover -- Copyright -- Contents -- Acknowledgements -- Foreword by the Editor -- Linking Disaster Victims to Resources: A Case Study of Equity in Post- Katrina Crisis Counseling Referrals -- Including People With Functional and Access Needs in All Aspects of Community Disaster Planning -- Group Therapy: An Approach to Disaster Intervention -- Workshop: Healing the Wounds of Deployment: The ' Art' of Coming Home -- Disasters: A Manifold Challenge for Social Science Practitioners and Researchers Alike -- Psychological Growth and The Value of the Phenomenological Narrative for Healthy Reintegration of Returnees and Their Families -- Being There When It Counts: Mental Health Roles.Will You Be There When it Counts? "Being There When It Counts" is what Disaster Mental Health Services (DMHS) teams try hardest to achieve before, during and following disasters, critical incidents, crises, and terrorist activities. Although a relatively new field, these teams have quickly become an integral part of disaster and critical incident preparedness, mitigation, response, and follow-up. DMHS began with Critical Incident Stress Debriefing and Critical Incident Stress Management. In order to continue to grow and meet identified needs, both continued development as well as focused research. Research will help identify how Mental Health Services can best be utilized as well as how relevant changes need to be made in practice. Networking and sharing experiences can also help develop resources. The 8th Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Conference was held Nov. 7-9, 2009 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This volume highlights key papers from presenters. Praise for The Proceedings of the Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Conference "...A must have for first responders and mental health professionals. Addressing the needs of people who work in these fields is critical. The better trained they are to be emotionally equipped for disasters, the better they can help others. I think that the pages of information covered in this book will be some of the most important information needed by people in this field today." --Page Lovitt, Reader Views "This compilation of papers deals with people's reactions to a wide variety of disasters, including not only terror and Hurricane Katrina, but child abuse and the trauma suffered by families of service members. Taken together, the papers are fascinating. The "Proceedings of the 5th Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Conference" provides insight into the nature of the individual'sresponse to terror and disaster. They should be interesting reading for everyone who either indirectly or directly has been affected." --Linda Benninghoff, author of Departures The Rocky Mountain Region Disaster Mental Health Institute Press "Learning from the past and planning for the future" http://www.rmrinstitute.org An Imprint of Loving Healing Press.

Five areas covering the life span have been identified and promising strategies are described in detail: what is provided, how the target group is engaged, the resources required, management problems and evidence of effectiveness. Interviews with both clients and providers help to bring to life the descriptions as we learn how the support came to be needed and what benefits they themselves feel have been reaped. These descriptive studies, together with criteria for judging the efficacy of interventions, provide an excellent resource for planners and policy makers. The book will also be invaluable to those who seek to implement preventive policies in their day to day work - lives - such as social workers, clinical psychologists, health visitors, community psychiatric nurses and general practitioners.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
