We are living in a time of uncertainty. While the incidence of war across the globe has decreased (1), the earth has been racked by an unprecedented wave of both natural and man-made disasters, including earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, and terrorism. The World Health Organization defines a disaster as a “severe disruption, ecological and psychosocial, which greatly exceeds the coping capacity of the affected community” (2). Simultaneously, the advancement of global technology has resulted in graphic images of destruction and human suffering being streamed from disaster sites. Wide use of camera phones and the popularity of websites, such as YouTube, allow images to quickly become viral and are brought into our living rooms in real time on a global scale. As such, Disaster Psychiatry could not be more relevant to our times.
