After the initial wave of an acute response is over – DPO volunteers step in to assist with education and services of treating the invisible wounds of psychological trauma.
DPO welcomes new volunteers to participate in our fulfilling work. We regularly offer training sessions for new volunteers. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 646-867-3514.
Proper training is crucial to successful disaster psychiatry work. We urge that no psychiatrist, whether trained by DPO or not, go it alone in their disaster work.
