Disaster recovery often focuses on the technical, practical and physical aspects of recovery, leaving social, psychological, spiritual and communal aspects under-explored. This subject takes a holistic approach and focuses on the multidimensional nature of recovery from disasters. Students will explore the current environmental context in relation to different types of disasters, including natural disasters and those influenced by environmental degradation and climate change. Students will be encouraged to critically reflect on community context, discourses, policy, governance, service systems, resilience and approaches to disaster recovery from a human services perspective.
