Crisis Leadership Management - PhD in Forensic Psychology

Return to: PhD in Forensic Psychology  

Students gain leadership insights that will prepare them to effectively manage crisis situations. Students will explore definitions of leadership, major theoretical leadership models, and contextual and situational factors related to leadership and change. They will also assess traditional and current literature and complete practical exercises to learn about theories of trauma; actions and behaviors following a disaster; stress, coping, and adjustment difficulties; and psychological disorders (e.g., post-traumatic stress disorder). The focus of the coursework is on the development of culturally appropriate service-delivery programs and interventions for individuals affected or traumatized by disasters.
