This installment of the SAMHSA Disaster Behavioral Health Information Series (DBHIS) focuses on online disaster behavioral health training opportunities available to people interested in expanding knowledge and skills pertaining to psychological disaster response. An increase in the number of natural and human-caused disasters has made it more important than ever for communities to be prepared for these events. The individuals who serve these communities play an important role in helping communities prepare for and recover from disasters and build resilience. The following trainings are appropriate for emergency managers, public health workers, community health workers, crisis counselors, social workers and other behavioral health clinicians, first responders, volunteers, students, or any other people serving their community and interested in disaster recovery topics.
The trainings in this installment cover a range of topics, including crisis intervention, Psychological First Aid, preparedness and response, resilience-building, and psychological responses to disasters. The trainings listed are free to the public; however, they may require you to register with a training website in order to take them. Some of the trainings also offer continuing education unit credits.
