Special Section Psychiatric Aspects of Disaster Michael Blumenﬁeld, M.D., Guest Editor Each of the papers in this section address a different aspect of disaster and it’s aftermath. Yet each conveys clinical and research data which emphasizes how traumatic events in a disaster can have a profound impact starting with the immediate aftermath and continuing as a chronic disorder in some people. Norwood and colleagues suggest that the psychological, physiological and social stresses act as a pathogen. They identify people who might be exposed to these stresses and can have subsequent physical and psychological problems. We know that this includes not only the primary victims of a disaster but also the secondary victims such as police, ﬁre, medical personnel, EMT and even members of the working press. Shaw examines with a ﬁne microscope, the mean- ing of trauma and the effects on children and adolescents. He out- lines therapeutic strategies which can be used effectively for the individual, the family, the school and at the community level. Rundell apples the emergency medical model and suggests that in the critical period of a disaster there are psychiatric techniques just as there are medical approaches to identify and treat the vic- tims
