We will then move on to Dr. Curt Drennen who will provide basic strategies for supporting the disaster behavioral needs of survivors. We will end with Mr. Anthony Barone who will discuss his experiences and lessons learned from applying disaster behavioral health concepts to disaster response. Following each presentation our guest speakers will respond to questions. The learned objectives of today's webinar are to provide a basic overview of core disaster behavioral health concepts, information on basic actions disaster response personnel can incorporate in their interactions with disaster survivors without the need for extensive training, and information on recognizing severe reactions to disasters and how to make a referral for a behavioral health assessment."
