Abstract : This is a distillation of key points developed during a Consensus Conference on the role of psychiatrists in disaster which was held at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) on September 18-19, 1995. The major goal of the conference was to identify unique contributions which psychiatrists could bring to disaster communities and their victims. This publication represents a consolidation of perspectives from psychiatrists, other physicians, and non-medical experts in disasters on ways in which psychiatrists can aid communities to prepare for and recover from major catastrophes.
