About the Course:
This issue of the Supplemental Research Bulletin focuses on how people in poverty, with low incomes, and of low socioeconomic status (SES) experience disasters. We explore the differences in risk perception and disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Although it provides some information on international disaster events, this issue is primarily focused on disasters that have affected communities within the United States. Disaster behavioral health professionals can use this issue of the Supplemental Research Bulletin to inform their disaster behavioral health planning for low SES populations. The issue helps to clarify the ways in which people of low SES may be at greater risk than other groups in disasters, as well as barriers to disaster preparedness and other adverse situations or experiences they may face during the phases of disaster impact, response, and recovery. The issue also includes suggestions for policies to support better outcomes for people of low SES in and after disasters.
This course is based on the article,Disaster Technical Assistance Center Supplemental Research Bulletin Greater Impact-How Disasters Affect People of Low Socioeconomic Status created by SAMHSA in 2017.
