Product Description

Question 1 of 7

50.0 Points

A few weeks after 9/11, a disaster mental health clinician believes she has a patient who is experiencing either "Acute Stress Disorder" or "Post-traumatic Stress Disorder". a. What criteria should the clinician use to determine which disorder the patient has (in other words, what are the diagnostic markers for each)? b. Which disorder do you believe the patient has? Note: You don't have to be a mental health clinician to answer here--your task here is to apply what you learned in the course--so no need to state that you aren't qualified to diagnose. You must select ONLY ONE diagnosis, either ASD or PTSD, to receive points for this question.

Question 4 of 7

You have been tasked with developing a two-day workshop focusing on the psychology of disaster. The workshop is part of a larger several day conference. Other workshops occurring during the conference will cover disaster preparedness and planning, so those topics won't be part of your two days. Identify four CRITICAL topics that you would include during your workshop sessions. Critical means you consider a topic a very high priority, something that is absolutely essential for attendees to know about. Each session is to be an hour long. Below list the 4 topics you would include in the workshop and, for each one, explain why you selected it (Note: You must restrict your answer to only four topics-including more will void your answer)

Question 7 of 7

Which area of the study of the psychology of disaster do you think needs more attention these days in order to effectively deal with contemporary disasters? Why? NOTE: You must link your answers to course materials here, rather than just giving a brief statement of opinion.
