From the DTAC [Disaster Technical Assistance Center] Education and Training webpage description: "The goal of the Deployment Supports for Disaster Behavioral Health Responders (27:18) (link is external) podcast is to prepare DBH [Disaster Behavioral Health] responders and their family members for deployment by reviewing pre- and post-deployment guidelines and ways to prepare oneself and one's family members for the stress of deployment and reintegration into regular work and family life. [...] The featured speaker is April Naturale, Ph.D., of SAMHSA's Disaster Technical Assistance Center (DTAC). Dr. Naturale is a traumatic stress specialist with a 25-year history in health/mental health administration. She directed New York's disaster mental health response following the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and spent several years in the Gulf Coast after the large-scale hurricanes that devastated the area. DTAC encourages participation of behavioral health, public health, and other professionals involved in emergency management/disaster response. Feedback is welcome."
