Shelter in Place and Mental Health: An Examination of Residents After the Boston Bombing


Mar 29, 2019 11:00am ‐ Mar 29, 2019 12:00pm


Credits: None available.

Description

The 20th century has seen an increase in mass violence, many which mandate a shelter-in-place (SIP) or “lockdown” response. Individuals in an SIP may experience emotional challenges. By reviewing recent findings of 150 individuals who sheltered for 12 hours during the search for the Boston Marathon bombers, attendees will learn strategies for managing lockdown situations. Specific concerns of individuals, including marginalized populations, will be highlighted, and evidence-based strategies for SIP will be provided.

Base on recent literature, clinical experience, and results of a concurrent mixed methods study of the Boston Marathon bombing shelter-in-place experience, participants will: 

  • Gain a clear understanding of strategies for helping citizens (including children and adolescents), students, manage shelter-in-place or lock-down situations. 
  • Better understand adverse mental health effects of sheltering scenarios and strategies counselors can employ to help mitigate these effects.
  • Learn how professional counselors can contribute their knowledge, skills and expertise - particularly related to marginalized and underrepresented populations - in the planning, response, and recovery phases of any sheltering emergency.
