Social workers are often at the front line responding to the multilayered impact and aftermath of community crises and disasters – those that are local, national and international. Professor Josh Miller, PhD and I have complied a number of resources in the public domain that you may find helpful. We invite you to familiarize yourself with these resources and to share them with others who may also benefit from them.
