Resilience in the Face of Disaster

The impact of a natural disaster is devastating. How did you respond at the time of the crisis and in the weeks following the disaster? How are you feeling today?

This webinar on Resilience and Disaster Relief was originally created for the Diocese of Texas, West Texas, and the Virgin Islands to address the psychological impact that followed after the hurricanes. The topic and webinar content can be applied in similar situations of disaster and trauma. Here you will explore the psychological impact of disaster and promising avenues for restoring well-being. Clinical psychologist Jody Horstman leads the 45-minute presentation, focusing on resilience and managing the stress associated with crisis. With extensive training and experience in disaster relief, Jody speaks to the needs of both survivors and responders, and points to strategies for resilience and self-care in times of crisis and when handling the stressors of everyday life.
