Introduction to Disaster Case Management
February 7 @ 9:00 am - February 8 @ 4:00 pm
Join Lutheran Disaster Response for training and engagement.
In this interactive, two-day, in-person course, participants will learn about disaster case management, its role in disaster recovery, and the benefits a disaster case manager can offer to communities impacted by disaster.
Participants will learn about disaster case management and essential considerations affecting a client’s recovery through discussion, individual activities, and group training exercises.
This course explores the vital skills and considerations needed to be a disaster case manager, demonstrates techniques for working with clients and the development of a recovery plan, and how to present a client’s case to a Long-Term Recovery Group for funding.
Lutheran Disaster Response and its affiliates developed this course to build the capacity to sustain professional, standardized disaster services, strengthen the resilience of communities affected by disasters that receive little attention, and reduce people’s suffering, especially vulnerable populations who are often underserved and uninsured. This course is designed for anyone interested in helping the community after a natural or human-caused disaster.
