Toronto, ON

Event Description

When Disaster Strikes, What Will You Do? Thinking Through Essential
Psychosocial Skills for Health and Mental Health Professionals
Most mental health workers and health professionals in Ontario are not trained in emergency psychosocial skills appropriate for individuals caught in the distress, fear
and chaos that a sudden disaster causes. This academic day will help us consider what theory, skills and practice we will need when a wide-scale city crisis occurs.
Speakers translate knowledge gleaned from global disasters to consider best responses for a local emergency.
Attendees will have the opportunity to explore changes in their role in small groups as applied to a particular vulnerable population.
This day will give participants an important chance to recognize how best to foster resilience in themselves and others, and how their usual work with patients will need to be adapted to assist victims of a disaster in Toronto.
