Abstract The supply of water following disasters has always been of significant concern within communities. Although water systems encompass physical components, a variety of social, economic, and organizational factors can affect their resilience to disasters. This paper proposes an innovative indicator-based resilience quantification model and utilizes a novel framework to identify the social variables affecting water supply resilience to disasters. The CARE model is utilized in this study to ...

Abstract The vulnerability paradigm widely adopts a resource-based approach for examining disaster risk. From this perspective, the vulnerability of people in disasters arises from a lack of resources. It can be argued that frameworks under this approach focus mainly on the means (i.e. resources) but overlook the ends (i.e. what people are capable of doing or being to cope with disasters). Furthermore, the resource-based approach neglects the processes or factors that are involved in converting ...

ABSTRACTSupervision is increasingly defined by reflection and traumainformed knowledge and practice. When faced with a disaster, the role and function of supervision is changed by the scale of events, with psychosocial support for traumatic stress often side-lined by, or subsumed within, emergency interventions.

INTRODUCTION: Companion animals have often been treated as an afterthought, or ignored, by those involved in planning for and responding to disasters. This omission in planning for the needs of companion animals has been predicated upon a failure to recognise the emotional bond between many people and their companion animals. This has resulted in significant costs for humans and animals in many disasters. This article serves to raise issues regarding the responsibilities of human service organis...
The inclusion of animals within social work education is a relatively new, and still rare, component of curriculum development in Australia and New Zealand. To remedy this omission within our final-year social work programmes at The University of Auckland, New Zealand, the authors designed a lecture with two main focal points and with two underpinning agendas. This article summarises the knowledge base and conceptual underpinning of the presentation, which addresses an animal-inclusive considera...
