ABSTRACT

Increased frequency of natural and social disasters requires rebuilding of the current national disaster recovery system in Korea since there are considerable adverse effects on the victims who are directly or indirectly experienced with disasters. However, physical and financial supports for victims without psychological support could not prevent the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that may occur after the disaster. This study focuses on the cases of psychological supports for natural and social disasters in Japan and the United States to provide a potential direction for the national system of psychological support in Korea. In addition, it examines the operating practices of psychological support institutions in each country, which provides the implications for priority-setting in enhancing the psychological support system in Korea.
