A 3-hour workshop September 27, 2019
Caprice Lambert, PsyD, IMFT
As psychologists we have many roles: clinician, supervisor, management, business owner, and community member to name a few. When there is a large disaster in our own community we are impacted in all roles. It is important to understand the needs in each role and how we can best serve our community. In this presentation we will discuss some of our key roles, how they are impacted and what services we can provide. We will discuss the difference between Acute Stress Disorder and PTSD and corresponding treatment. We will talk about different ways to provide support through outreach, volunteering and psychoeducation. We will also discuss our own needs and how to ensure that we are taking care of ourselves so that we can be there for everyone else.
- Understand the needs in differing roles after a major disaster (e.g. crisis stabilization, employment concerns, exacerbation of other symptoms)
- Learn about Acute Stress Disorder and corresponding treatment modalities.
- Understand ways to support community through non-clinical activities
- Discuss self-care when your community has been impacted.
