Example text

Research on how to foster the ability to rely more on improvisational response could be useful.

Workshop participants discussed that the stability of these networks is fragile at best, and disintegration of the networks is likely following a disaster. Individuals within these communities are at severe risk of being further disenfranchised from the larger community, and may lack any knowledge of, access to, or trust in aid offered in response to a disaster. Workshop participants expressed a need to consider how communication with all members of a community, including individuals within disenfranchised or potentially disenfranchised populations, should occur.

For some communities, dysfunction is more slowly resolved, but the community ultimately recovers. Chronic dysfunction represents the failure to adapt to the new circumstances. Factors controlling response trajectories are severity of exposure, the existence (or the perception of the existence) of social supports, and social class. Different levels of distress can be observed within a single community following a disaster, as demonstrated in a case study of mudslide victims in Mexico in 1999. A high degree of property damage, bereavement, and complete displacement was observed following mudslides that destroyed a large portion of a community.
