Summary
"This book helps clinicians and other responders to apply their existing knowledge to work in a disaster field. It presents a comprehensive model of disaster mental health service delivery, developed, refined, and employed by the authors in a variety of crises. The CODE-C model (Consultation, Outreach, Debriefing and defusing, Education, and Crisis counseling) is designed to be flexible and adaptive to any disaster situation, giving responders and emergency management professionals a variety of interventions tailored to work under stressful conditions. Particular attention is paid to the importance of avoiding burnout and compassion fatigue, and self-help tips and prevention strategies are included in the text. Disaster Mental Health Services is the most up-to-date treatment of the latest research and practice in the field, and is an invaluable resource in the preparation and training of clinicians and response personnel."--Jacket
