Social Work Professor Guest Edits Special Journal Issue on Hurricane Impacts

Dr. Alison Salloum served as guest editor with a colleague for the Journal of Family Strengths, Special Issue on The Impact of Hurricanes on Children and Families and Interconnected Systems. The articles in this special issue on the impact of hurricanes on children and families and interconnected systems build upon the lessons learned from past disasters and focuses on some of the advances and work being conducted with children and their families in light of catastrophic hurricanes in the past few years (Hurricanes Harvey 2017, Maria 2017, Irma 2017, Michael 2018 and Florence 2018).

The special issue is available via the web with easy access to download the articles. There is also a wonderful Perspectives from the Field article from Central Florida Behavioral Health Network and associated colleagues on their response after Hurricane Michael. Dr. Salloum also joined her colleagues in Houston on a study post Hurricane Harvey.
