Event description

Description

This training covers TWO of the required courses for initial DRCC certification.

CROSS CULTURAL ISSUES IN DISASTER RESPONSE AND RECOVERY (9am-12pm)

This workshop provides a review of cultural issues and considerations that are relevant to the effective delivery of disaster mental health services. Aspects of culture and ethnicity that influence the experience of crisis, trauma and suffering, and cultural traditions that enhance recovery and healing for individuals, families and communities will be presented and discussed. Participants will be encouraged, through group exercises, to examine their own culturally-grounded values and beliefs, and how these constructs shape our professional roles. The workshop will conclude with an opportunity for open discussion of culturally-based ethical dilemmas we have encountered in our work, and how we seek to resolve such dilemmas.

Objectives:

  • Participants will describe cultural competency, cultural awareness, and cultural sensitivity.
  • Participants will examine the importance of culture in crisis counseling and our cultural influences and biases.
  • Participants will discuss issues related to cultural competency in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.

ETHICAL ISSUES IN CRISIS RESPONSE (1pm-4pm)

This workshop will provide a review of relevant ethical principles and issues related to crisis and disaster response interventions. The workshop will review general principles and elements of ethical decision making models and discuss their application to crisis and disaster response. Philosophical issues (e.g., the politics and economics of disaster relief efforts) and practical issues (e.g., the varied and sometimes conflicting roles of the crisis counselor) will be presented for group analysis and discussion. Case vignettes will illustrate some of the common ethical dilemmas encountered by crisis counselors, and provide a framework for decision-making. The workshop will conclude with an opportunity for open discussion of ethical dilemmas we have encountered in our work, and how we seek to resolve such dilemmas.

Objectives:
• Participants will identify areas of potential ethical conflict that are relevant to crisis intervention and disaster response work

• Participants will identify elements of an ethical decision-making model that can be applied to specific ethical dilemmas

• Participants will apply principles of an ethical decision making model to case vignettes involving crisis and disaster response
