Summary: "This new volume, Disaster Recovery : Community-Based Psychosocial Support in the Aftermath, provides a wealth of realistic and applicable information for addressing psychosocial support related issues resulting from disasters. It provides readers with both a theoretical and practical look at community-based psychosocial support and community consultation from an interdisciplinary perspective. The last thirty years have brought to the fore the importance of psychosocial support as an integrator and cross-cutting theme in disaster response. In this volume, the authors share their practical knowledge about development of community-based psychosocial support based on the hundred of thousands of people in fourteen countries and three continents. Many of the lessons learned come from case studies of the response to the Gujarat earthquake, the 2004 South Asia Tsunami, and more. These provide an immense amount of knowledge about psychosocial support through participation in programs. This book uses case study methodology and practical examples to share how communities can come together, care for themselves, and use their social capital and problem-solving skills to survive and thrive. The information in the book will aid in the development of program offerings for mental health and psychosocial support in disasters and humanitarian emergencies. The book includes case studies to help illustrate the content"--
