Managing the Human Dimension of a Crisis

  • What are the needs and expectations of those affected by a disaster? 
  • What is the role of crisis communication in the aftermath of a crisis? 
  • How can communications experts assist those affected, and how can they play an important role when decisions need to be made regarding anniversaries, site visits and monuments?

These are some of the questions that will be discussed in this presentation, which will focus on the immediate aftermath as well as long-term care after a disaster.

The presentation will give hints regarding family assistance centers, monuments, anniversaries, DVI, personal effects and support groups, based on the presenter’s personal experience and research around the world.
