Resilience in the Face of Emergencies XBR206

Launceston

Introduction

This unit is focused around the questions about resilience and how we can apply the concept within emergencies and beyond that to other aspects of life. Currently the frequency and scale of emergencies is increasing, eroding the very resilience we need to improve. Further, improving resilience at one level (e.g., government emergency services) can reduce resilience at other levels (e.g., individual resilience). The solutions are therefore complex. We will study this problem with respect major domains of knowledge such as psychology, sociology, physiology and business and management. We will apply this knowledge to a range of emergency events that people might become involved in. We will consider resilience at different levels of magnification – individual, organisational, community and government. Finally, you will translate the learnings into another area of your life.
