Managing the Psychosocial Consequences of Conventional and Unconventional Terrorism
Hosted by: FEMA Incidents of mass violence involving shooting, bombing and kidnapping, as well as the use of more exotic hazards such as chemical, biological and radiological agents produce unique and complex psycho-social reactions in individuals and communities. This awareness-level webinar explores the types and nature of acts of mass violence involving both conventional and unconventional means, as well as the emotional and behavioral reactions to these incidents. Attention is given to the demands on leaders and planners, as well as crisis responders and others who mobilized to assist. Both long- and short-term effects are explored, as well as models and methods of support and intervention. To register, click here.
