This course is designed to expand understanding of meaningful community engagement with the public and community stakeholders after a disaster, traumatic event or tragedy. Emphasis is placed on empowering community to connect, envision a new future, and come together to heal, rebuild and recover. The importance of encouraging meaningful involvement of all stakeholders, especially vulnerable populations, in the planning process, and increasing skills, knowledge and capacity to host and participate in meaningful conversations is key. Focus on appropriate tools and techniques to use in conducting community engagement in recovery situations is covered. We will explore the impact of disaster, tragedy and trauma on community conflict and emotion and provide tangible tools that result in a plan and approach for moving forward.
Stephani recently wrote a blog for medium titled "Why COMMUNITY matters most in COMMUNITY RECOVERY to disaster". Here is a small highlight from her compelling article:
"I know from experience that successful recovery comes from the vision, dreams, hopes and challenges of community themselves. It is about so much more than the buildings, roads and infrastructure. It is about community choosing what their future looks like, and then acting on it with the support of agencies and groups. Not the other way around, which happens so often where agencies act, and community follows. It is about community recovery and it is more than that — it is COMMUNITY LED RECOVERY where lives, connection, social capital and vibrancy of place are built again."
