With all the tragedy that has taken place in recent months and years, the topic simply seemed appropriate, said Dr. Logan-McKibben, the event’s organizer.

“We wanted to create a unique opportunity for people to learn from individuals’ firsthand experiences of responding to community crisis, whether it be due to a natural disaster, school violence or other form of crisis.”

Professors, counseling practitioners and counselors-in-training gathered for an opening speaker, panel and poster sessions, and an overview of Disaster Mental Health services and volunteer infrastructure of the American Red Cross.
