Call For Papers—Special Issue on Disaster Psychology

PsychologyWhether you are injured physically or psychologically, disasters can take a serious emotional toll. Normal reactions include intense, unpredictable feelings; flashbacks; trouble concentrating or making decisions; disrupted eating and sleeping patterns; emotional upsets on anniversaries or other reminders; strained personal relationships; and physical symptoms such as headaches, nausea or chest pain. Emotional reactions to disasters have predictable patterns according to some researchers.

In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring disaster psychology. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

      • Clinical interventions after major disaster
      • Research on mechanisms of mental diseases after major disaste
      • Research on intervention programs and techniques
      • Intervention for people in special needs
      • Public education of disaster-related mental health
      • Methodology of screening and intervention using mobile phone
      • Epidemiological study of PTSD
      • Social behavior in disasters & emergencies
