Individual and Collective Recovery from Human-Caused Disasters

On 29 September 2021, I gave a keynote address entitled "Individual and Collective Recovery from Human-Caused Disasters: Lessons from Political Violence Around the Globe". The keynote was delivered to the Institute for Disasters Mental Health Conference which this year had the theme of "From 9/11 to Covid-19, Lessons from Two Decades of Disaster Responses".

This IDMH conference, hosted by State University of New York (Online), brought together a roster of expert presenters from across the US to review how much has been learned about incorporating mental health needs into emergency response, and to look ahead to where we can. My keynote explored lessons from managing political violence for mental health in disaster settings.
