In an age where civilians are increasingly the targets of violent attack or victims of natural disaster, there has been an ideological shift within organisations and institutions from ‘it will never happen here...’ to ‘How would we cope if it happened here?’
This new and revised edition of the bestselling Order from Chaos is an essential multi-disciplinary practice-based training resource for first-response professionals who support the psychosocial needs of those affected by traumatic events. It draws on learning from recent major incidents to guide readers through new theories of practice in the field of trauma response.
Additional new features include:
•Information and examples from recent incidents
•A chapter on children and young people
•Commentary on new theoretical response models
•Reflections on changing operational contexts and practitioner self-care
