Synopsis

"Crisis and Disaster Counseling: Lessons Learned from Katrina and Other Disasters" is a core textbook that addresses crisis mental health by examining three major crises/disasters that have occurred in the last decade: Hurricane Katrina, Virginia Tech, and September 11. An overview of the disaster response field is highlighted by focusing on current theoretical perspectives which have provided a framework for culturally and ecologically appropriate interventions. Case studies in each chapter discuss evidence based practice approaches that show appropriate interventions. This book features a practical, skill-building approach.

Priscilla Dass-Brailsford is an Associate Professor in the Division of Counseling and Psychology at Lesley University. She has over twenty years of clinical experience, working with underserved and chronically traumatized populations in addition to working in child advocacy and conducting court-ordered sexual abuse evaluations. For several years, Dr. Dass-Brailsford coordinated a state-wide crisis team, the first of its kind at its inception. In this role, she responded to high profile incidents of violence by supporting affected communities in their healing and recovery. Dr. Dass-Brailsford's research projects are multiple: resiliency in the aftermath of political trauma and socio-economic stress; the effects of community violence, multicultural research on institutional trust and racial identity; the effects of secondary trauma on first responders and other volunteers; and the benefits of walk-in mental health services for disaster survivors. She was a first responder in New York after the terrorist attack in 2001 and deployed to New Orleans immediately after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast in 2005. She has returned to the area several times to work with mental health providers. This edited book was inspired by her work with the survivors of Hurricane Katrina and is written as an acknowledgement of their resiliency despite the challenges of loss, dislocation, recovery and reconstruction.
