Abstract

Earthquake, flood, tsunami, tornado, hurricane; How do we meet our ethical responsibility to be prepared as a community to successfully navigate such disasters? The updated 2010 CRC Code of Ethics D.3.b lists Disaster Preparation and Response as a new mandate for counselors. Materials currently available will be reviewed with a focus on preparation for such events and the implementation of needed services. National and local community standards and best practices and how they fit with the ADA as well as areas of further research and resource development needs will be discussed. Case studies will be used for application of learning.
