Emotional preparedness in case of disasters:
Research and training for children, adolescents, and adults

Psychology & Disasters

Disasters (e.g., natural disasters, technological disasters, terrorism, etc.) have a potentially highly traumatic impact on psychological functioning.

Emotional preparedness

Emotional preparedness aims at building people’s emotional resilience to combat the psychological trauma associated with disasters.


We conduct research on people’s understanding of disasters and disaster-related emotions. Our focus is on children and adolescents’ psychological development.


We develop training programs (patent pending) including ICT (Information and Communication Technology) to promote people’s understanding of disasters and disaster-related emotions.
