DEM514 Cultural, Social And Psychological Aspects Of Emergency And Disaster Management

Disaster and Emergency Management is situated within multiple social, political, religious and cultural contexts. The Asia-Pacific, including East and Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, forms one of the most ethnically diverse regions in the world. This unit provides a comprehensive introduction to differing codes of practice and ethical considerations for managing content and delivery of communication strategies, including public information campaigns and media relations. It also explores and critiques various approaches to the prevention and treatment of psychological, social and cultural aspects of trauma in disaster situations, including the role of both public and private emergency intervention services.
