Disaster Planning Manual
From Professor William Berkowitz via the Comm-Org e-list:
In light of recent events in Japan, we are writing to remind Co-Listers that a group of community psychology colleagues has recently published a disaster recovery manual (free, downloadable) titled How to Help Your Community Recover from Disaster: A Manual for Planning and Action.
Chapters cover the steps required to understand the potential effects of disaster, organize the community, assess its needs, make an action plan, choose a strategy or strategies for intervention, reach out to various constituencies, track results, and share lessons learned. A distinctive feature of the 104-page text is its grounding in psychological knowledge and in psychological principles closely linked to disaster recovery.
