PCAIN 2021 Conference Webinar Series – June 11th

June 11, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Topic: “Disaster Without, Disaster Within: Natural Disasters, Family Violence, & the Covid-19 Pandemic”

Date:   June 11, 2021

Time:  11:30a-1:00p (EDT)

Speaker:  Andrew Campbell, Founder/CEO, Campbell Research & Consulting

Description:  The presenter will discuss specific disasters around the globe and describe similarities in reporting patterns and household characteristics after these events with what has occurred during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Participants will learn how increased stress and prolonged periods of isolation significantly increase risk of abuse victimization for adults, children, and pets who reside in the homes impacted by widespread disaster. With increasing reports of family violence extending a year or more after the event and declining mental health reported for up to three years after disaster, professionals must prepare for long-term family violence victim assistance needs following the current pandemic. The importance of protecting pets to better protect people, during disaster and at all other times as well, will also be highlighted. The presenter’s recently published theory “Opportunity to Abuse Theory, will be introduced to explain the increase in abuse that follows widespread crisis and disaster.
