Disaster, Crisis, and Intervention - PhD in Human Services


Return to: PhD in Human Services  

In this specialization, students will examine the theory and strategies to respond to the initial basic needs of a community in an emergency situation and how to assist victims and their caregivers after the initial crisis has passed. Students can study the skills and practices specific to crisis counseling, including theories of crisis intervention and models for working with different populations. They will examine the actions and behaviors that follow a disaster; learn how to address stress, coping, and adjustment difficulties; and study psychological disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder. And they will explore a crisis from a community and regional level, and gain experience designing a crisis plan to prepare for future emergencies. This specialization also addresses the psychology and impact of terrorism on communities.
