IAEM Thursday Learning Webinar Series #2: "The Comeback Formula: 5 Keys to Community Resilience and Disaster Recovery"

July 13, 2017, 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT

About the Webinar: It happens so fast. One day, all is well. And then suddenly, you're homeless, unmoored, and dependent on the kindness of strangers for the most basic necessities of life - a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in, a few borrowed t-shirts and jeans. And when you look ahead, trying to figure out how to put your life back together, the road looks long and treacherous. Because it is.

Natural disasters destroy both physical and personal worlds. A full response must comprise both material and emotional support. FEMA housing and even full-replacement insurance policies aren't enough to heal traumatized minds and hearts. But faith, caring support, and a few simple yet profound practices proven to boost resilience can make a big difference in how well disaster survivors and emergency responders alike recover from catastrophic experiences. Resilience can even transform disaster into opportunities for deeper life experience and greater service. Sandra Millers Younger combines riveting storytelling, lessons learned from her personal experience as a wildfire survivor, and leading-edge research from the field of positive psychology in this common-sense approach to a critical but often overlooked aspect of disaster recovery for both emergency professionals and the communities they serve.
