Introduction.-Sociological question of crises and disasters in our contemporary society.- What is resilience? The state of the art.- Organizational response to emergencies: Italian civil protection and civil defence service.- Civil Protection Voluntary Service.-Italian civil protection volunteers: "professional" resilience and the importance of training.- Population experience of earthquakes and possible resilient responses to disasters.- conclusion.
Natural disasters traumatize individuals, disrupt families, and destabilize communities.Surviving these harrowing events calls for courage, tenacity, and resilience. Professional planning requires specific types of knowledge of how people meet and cope with extreme challenges.
Disaster Resilience from a Sociological Perspective examines three major earthquakes occurring in Italy over a fourteen - year period for a well-documented analysis of populations' responses to and recovery from disaster, the social variables involved, and the participation of public agencies. This timely volume reviews sociological definitions and models of disaster, identifying core features of vulnerability and multiple levels of individual and social resilience. The analysis contrasts the structural and supportive roles of Italy's civil protection and civil defense services in emergency planning and management as examples of what the author terms professional resilience . And testimony from earthquake survivors and volunteers gives voice to the social processes characteristic of disaster. Among the areas covered:
Social context for concepts of disaster, vulnerability, risk, and resilience
Types of resilience: a multidimensional analysis, focused on a physical, ecological, and ecosystem perspective
Findings from three earthquakes: loss, hope, and community.
Two systems of organizational response to emergencies
Toward a relational approach to disaster resilience planning
Plus helpful tables, methodological notes, and appendices
For researchers in disaster preparedness, psychology, and sociology, Disaster Resilience from a Sociological Perspective raises--and addresses--salient questions about people and communities in crisis, and how studying them can improve preparedness in an uncertain future.
