ABSTRACT

Disaster is a large-scale event which collapses and damages the functions and organizations of a society and victims have high difficulty to be recovered without external support. This study emphasizes various activities for recovery from damage to improve the level of preparedness to face more frequently-occurring and large-scale disasters. Given that the current target of disaster recovery centers on physical damage, this study suggests a need of continuous support on psychological treatment to victims. The review of multiple cases and literatures suggests that, in order to provide continuous psychological treatment, it is important to train and develop experts and to collaborate with related organizations. This study recommends several ways to improve psychological treatment support in Korea. Among others, the Korean Ministry of Public Safety and Security should train expert and play a role as a control tower to support activities and collaborate with the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare and other local governments for more efficient support.
