Supplemental Research Bulletin—Women and Disasters


This edition of the Supplemental Research Bulletin reviews research on how women experience disasters. In addition to women in general, research provides insight on the experience of pregnant women and older women. The edition reviews approaches that disaster behavioral health programs can take to ensure they meet the needs of women during a traumatic time. It reviews post-disaster distress, depression, substance use disorders, and more. It also examines violence against women and the possibility of it increasing after disasters.
