Many patients and staff have been affected by the tragic events in Boston. The first thing to remember is that we have a common bond with our clients/patients, because we are all affected in one way or another. The presenter, Dr. Richard Mollica recommends how to prepare for and respond to the emotional and physical effects when working with survivors of torture and trauma.
In addition, the webinar, “Emergency and Psychological Preparedness: Supporting Survivors and Ourselves During Crises” addresses emergency preparedness and how agency staff can assist clients with their physical and psychological needs when an emergency occurs. The presenter has vast experience in responding to similar tragic events, the effects on individuals previously affected by violence, and the best practices in responding to the symptoms of retraumatization.
