Welcome to the ‘Recovery Hour, Life After Disasters and Emergencies’ podcast, with David Younger, Clinical Psychologist.
This is a serial podcast that provides helpful information about various aspects of emotional and social recovery following a disaster or emergency, be that natural or man-made. It’s aimed at community members who have been exposed to such an experience, but it will also be of benefit to those professionals and volunteers working in emergency response and recovery.
Each episode features a special guest that I will talk to and interview for example, a community member with first hand lived experience, or a professional with a wealth of knowledge drawn from years of assisting and supporting people after disasters and emergencies. Through conversations we will explore topics such as human reactions and responses to trauma, assisting and supporting others through crisis, community functioning, community recovery, the different pathways of recovery, health and wellbeing, resilience, and growth.
Thanks for listening and I encourage you to tune into the first episode where I talk to trauma and natural disaster expert Dr Rob Gordon about stress, trauma and recovery.
