Dr. Rob Gordon (Trauma/Disaster Specialist)
A visiting Australian specialist in disaster psychology and clinical psychologist, Dr. Rob Gordon has spent the past 30+ years working with people affected by emergencies and disasters. He has advised the Red Cross and governments on how to assist individual people and whole communities as they rebuild and recover. His first-hand experience has helped many people affected by disaster to understand their reactions to trauma and grief, while his academic background has contributed to new approaches to community engagement during the critical stages of recovery.
During this session, Dr. Rob Gordon will discuss the different ways stress manifests and provide practical ways to protect health, lifestyle and relationships. He will also share hope, stories and practical examples to support you and your loved ones as you journey along the road to recovery. This event is sponsored by Alberta Health Services.
