如何面對重大天災造成的創傷壓力

Dear TPN members:
As some of you may have known, there was another big earthquake in Tainan.
I am deeply saddened by the loss that our fellow Taiwanese families have
encountered. I pray for the smooth recusing efforts that can result in more
survivors being found in a timely manner. In line with the TPN‘s mission to support psychologists in Taiwan and USA at times of a traumatic event, I am attaching an article published by the American Psychological Association Help Center and translated by our members, Drs. Paul Wang and Mei-Chuan Wang. I hope this document can be helpful for Taiwanese mental health
professionals to provide public education on the common responses to
traumatic stress, PTSD, and better ways to cope with the traumatic stress.

TPN statement on Taipei MRT tragedy 5/21/2014

Dear TPN members and friends of TPN,

The Taiwan Psychology Network (TPN) extends our deepest condolences to the victims, the victims’ family and friends, as well as all those who have been affected by the mass stabbing that took place in the Taipei MRT on May 21, 2014. This tragic event has generated tremendous shock and sadness throughout Taiwan and beyond. When such tragedy occurs, it is common to experience a complex array of reactions– reactions that are perhaps as complex and multi-layered as the causes and motives behind the violence itself. TPN is fully committed to providing support and resources to help individuals, families, and communities deal with the losses and challenges they may be experiencing in the aftermath of such an event.
