How can I find healing from the effects of disaster and trauma? Over the past month our community has been devastated by a terrible flood. The impact to my family has included the loss of our home, interruption of work and school, loss of income, physical deprivation, and overwhelming anxiety about the future. Now that the immediate danger is past and our present needs have been provided for (we’re staying with family in another city), I’m beginning to realize that we’re going to be coping with the emotional and psychological effects of this disaster for a long time to come. Can you help me get a handle on that process?
