Description

Being of low socioeconomic status (SES), in the United States and around the world, may affect how people understand disaster risk, prepare for disasters, and respond to warnings and evacuation orders. This CEU course focuses on how people in poverty, with low income, and low SES experience disasters by exploring the differences in risk perception and disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.

Objectives

On completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. Enumerate barriers to receiving housing and other types of aid.

2. Explain why the same loss affects poor and marginalized people far more than those that are not.

3. Investigate which people are more prepared for hurricanes.

4. Identify which factor associated with low SES was linked to greater posttraumatic growth after Hurricane Katrina.

5. Describe those that were less likely to evacuate before Hurricane Katrina.
