This publication highlights the roles of psychologists in education, preparation and training for disasters. It also looks at what psychologists can offer to the response to disasters, including the psychological interventions that can help victims, and at psychologists' research into disasters and their management.
The publication resulted from a symposium on the above topic held at the London offices of the British Psychological Society in March 2017 and organised by the Society's Crisis, Disaster and Trauma Section and, in particular by its chair, Dr Noreen Tehrani.
