Joshua Miller, author of Psychosocial Capacity Building in Response to Disasters, was recently interviewed as part of the Living Proof Podcast Series.
Here is a description of the series from “Living Proof”:
Dr. Joshua Miller discusses the many types of disasters that affect people around the world and how to help individuals and communities recover. He highlights the social ecology of disaster and the consequences of different types of disasters on individuals, families, and communities. Dr. Miller proposes an alternative to traditional, individually-focused mental health approaches, called Psychosocial Capacity Building, which is multi-systemic and addresses collective cultural orientations and helps foster access to the social support and connections that exist in groups and communities.
