Coping With Disasters | St. Clair College
Course Code
Course Credit

With communication systems that help to create awareness of "global village" events, we cannot help being aware of disasters of natural or humanly-constructed origin. This general education course will examine the public's attitudes, perceptions and emotional states following a disaster. The impact of lost lives upon the public morale, the unforgiving attitudes of the public towards human errors in methods or procedures that may have contributed to disasters, and longer term benefits which may flow from learning related to tragic events will be discussed.
