Am I my neighbor's keeper? Reflections on policy and practice in public disaster
The authors offer their personal account of their having experienced a tornado and then taking their turns as local psychologists in helping other victims of the disaster cope. Reflecting on policy and practice in public disaster, the authors briefly discuss how questions about who the authors are, how they are trained, what they value, and how they demonstrate all those things were brought to the forefront following the tragedy. The question is asked: As you read this, can you picture yourself taking a leave from your practice or other compensated work to go offer family psychological services for free or for some minimal fee?
