Responding to Disaster: Balancing the Risks of Doing Nothing or Doing Harm.
- ISSN: 0278-8403
In the months following the tragic events of Hurricane Katrina in August of 2005, we asked ABCT members to offer their perspectives on the event and how to best respond to similar events in the future. We now share several accounts of the tragedy with our readers. Further, we hope that you will contribute your reactions to this issue in the Behavior Therapist in the months to come. Readers will note an absence of contributions to this issue from ABCT members located in the immediate New Orleans area. Of course, recovery efforts are primary at this time, but we hope to hear about and learn from their experiences in future issues of tBT. In the interim, we offer best wishes to our friends and family in those areas as they continue to rebuild their lives, livelihoods, and communities.
