Over the past decade we have seen an increase in the number crises including but not limited to natural disasters, domestic and foreign terrorist attacks, and school shootings. Consequently, individuals throughout the nation have suffered both directly and vicariously - from minimal to significant impact. As advocates and agents of positive social change, professional counselors have taken it upon themselves to assist in any way possible. Efforts have included but are not limited to: providing free counseling, assisting with fundraising, conducting awareness workshops, distributing information, et cetera. Thanks to these selfless acts, many people have experienced reduced distress during these highly critical times. Despite the high number of counselors who have taken active participation in these efforts, there is always need for additional assistance. To best assist, however, counselors may benefit from some knowledge of disaster preparedness.

In an effort to better prepare professional counselors for disaster response, this webinar by a panel of counselors will cover the following areas: definitions of a crisis situation, disaster theory, and a disaster response model; a sharing of the CSI Disaster Response Policy by one of its original creators; a discussion of an effort a current CCE member engaged in during the past year; and the provision of resources. We will conclude with an opportunity for questions and answers.
