DescriptionViolence in our society has unfortunately become an all too common part of daily life. Large scale mass casualty incidents present significant challenges for immediate response as well as for coping in the aftermath as communities attempt to recover. Human service professionals and emergency responders play multiple roles throughout these processes. It is essential that human service professionals recognize the complex issues from both an internal and practice standpoint, and are prepared to respond to as they work within traumatic, highly-charged environments.
This presenter is being supported through a partnership between the UNC-CH, School of Social Work and the NC AHEC Program.
