Vicarious Trauma and Disaster Mental Health focuses on the clinician and the impact of working with trauma victims in the aftermath of massive disasters. Floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, acts of terrorism and other large-scale catastrophic events have increased in the last decade and emergency preparedness and disaster resilience have become a national imperative. Mental health professionals play many important roles in helping communities prepare and respond to disasters. What happens when mental health providers share the trauma and vulnerability from the toll taken by a disaster with the victims they care for? How can clinicians increase resilience in disaster trauma work and provide mental health services effectively? Vicarious Trauma and Disaster Mental Health answers these questions and more.
