1) I have read all of the required reading materials for this course.

2) In general, an event is considered a disaster based on the affected community and its members’ ability to cope.

3) Natural disasters, as the term implies, are those that result from the forces of nature.

4) Natural disasters are intentional events that affect people very specifically and in a targeted manner.

5) Classifying disasters into natural or man-made can provides no useful understanding regarding what is helpful during the bereavement process.

6) Mental health is an important concern during disasters, so much so that the United Nations and The World Health Organization mandated psychological care as the responsibility of only psychologists.

7) Because of the need to deliver professional mental health services to those affected by disasters, the United Nations Inter-Agency Standing Committee (UN-IASC) developed Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings.

8) The APA cautions psychologists from the United States against providing direct services to disaster-affected communities in foreign countries, unless they meet the criteria set by UN-IASC when it comes to working outside one’s own socio-cultural setting.

9) Stress reactions are pathological and bizarre; they should be labeled as mental illness.

10) At some point, physical, emotional, mental, behavioral and spiritual stress management skills must be applied in order to re-fuel the body’s coping response.

11) Disaster syndrome is a state of stunned psychological incapacitation that results in the inability to take care of one’s self or others.

12) Bereavement overload refers to “the experience of having to cope with multiple losses simultaneously or in rapid succession, such that one loss cannot be accommodated before another occurs.”

13) Responding to disaster situations requires mental health professionals to let go of assumptions associated with clinical work.

14) Mental health professionals are also invited to view all humanitarian aid workers, not just psychologists, as having the capability, or at least the potential, to be mental health service-providers.

15) All disaster survivors are victims and should be referred to as such.

16) Cultural sensitivity can help mental health practitioners in understanding the context behind particular thought processes.

17) Methodology for the Rapid Field Assessment can be observation, interviews with survivors, and coordination with local community leaders, humanitarian groups and disaster responders.

18) Critical Incident Stress Debriefing is a structured intervention aimed at addressing stress reactions by providing participants, whether survivors, witnesses or disaster workers, with opportunities to receive information on coping strategies and recovery resources.

19) Creating self-sustaining support does not work in situations of natural disaster.

20) UN-IASC guidelines recommend that mental health professionals affiliate themselves with organizations that can maintain long-term presence in an affected community.
