Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Psychiatry Volume 42, Issue 02: Disaster Planning.

The goal of this program is to improve the provision of mental health services to communities, coworkers, and families after a crisis or disaster. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Describe how involvement of state and federal assistance is solicited after a disaster.
2. Coordinate with state or federal agencies to provide assistance during or after a disaster.
3. Provide psychologic first aid and debriefing to help minimize trauma and promote resilience in survivors of disasters.
4. Maintain adequate standards of self-care when dealing with survivors of trauma and working in the field.
5. Prepare the workplace and home for potential disaster scenarios.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
