PSYCHOLOGISTS WHO VOLUNTEER THEIR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES FOLLOWING DISASTERS SAY THEY ARE CONTINUALLY IMPROVING THEIR ABILITY TO HELP PEOPLE AFFECTED BY DISASTERS AND OTHER TRAUMATIC EVENTS.

SUPER: TODAY/ CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:30)

THE CALIFORNIA BOARD OF PSYCHOLOGY TODAY DISCUSSED THE EXPERIENCES OF PSYCHOLOGISTS WHO RESPONDED WITH FREE COUNSELING ASSISTANCE AFTER THE RECENT WILDFIRES IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. THE RED CROSS AND OTHER RELIEF AGENCIES REQUESTED THEIR HELP. THE BOARD'S VICE CHAIR SAYS THE FIRST 24 HOURS FOLLOWING A TRAUMATIC EVENT, SUCH AS EARTHQUAKES, FIRES, OR EVEN A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT, ARE THE CRITICAL PERIOD DURING WHICH PSYCHOLOGICAL INTERVENTION IS OF MOST BENEFIT.

SUPER: SHARON O'CONNOR/CALIFORNIA BOARD OF PSYCHOLOGY

SOT: (0:19)

SAYS: "WE'RE TRAINED TO GO IN AND REALLY JUST DO A VERY BRIEF KIND OF INTERVENTION. AND THEN IF PEOPLE NEED MORE, FOR A LONGER PERIOD OF TIME, WE REFER, BUT WE GO IN FOR SPECIFIC REASONS, AND TRY OT HELP THEM IN THAT INSTANT, TO DO SOMETHING, AND TO BASICALLY KIND OF HELP CONSOLE THEM THROUGH AND GIVE THEM HOPE THAT THEY WILL GET THROUGH THIS."

SUPER: JUNE 25, 2007/SOUTH LAKE TAHOE

SUPER: SHARON O'CONNOR/VICE CHAIR/CALIFORNIA BOARD OF PSYCHOLOGY

SOT: (0:09)

SAYS: "IT'S LOSS. IT'S LOSS, IT'S ABANDONMENT, IT'S LOSING, YOU KNOW, WORK, IT'S YOU KNOW LOSING YOUR POSSESSIONS, LOSING PHOTOGRAPHS, LOSING MEMORIES."

SOT: (0:36)

SAYS: "I THINK THEY NEED SOME CONSOLATION IN THAT MOMENT. THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT SOMEBODY'S GOING TO BE THERE FOR THEM, AND YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THEY HAVE BASIC NEEDS AND THEY KNOW WHAT TO DO IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS. IT'S REALLY JUST THE TRAUMA IN THE FIRST 24 HOURS THAT YOU HAVE TO GO INA HELP THEM, AND THEN IF THEY NEED MORE WE CAN REFER THEM OUT TO DIFFERENT SERVICES."

REPORTER: "PRETTY GOOD TURNOUT FROM PSYCHOLOGISTS HERE IN THE STATE?

SAYS: "IT'S TREMENDOUS. AND NOW THAT THEY KNOW THEY CAN GET THIS TRAINING, WHERE TO GO THEY FEEL MORE ORGANIZED, 'CAUSE THEY ALL WANT TO DO SOMETHING. YOU KNOW WHEN KATRINA HAPPENED IN NEW ORLEANS, PSYCHOLOGISTS CAME IN DROVES, BUT THEY DIDN'T HAVE THE TRAINING, THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO BUT THEY FELT COMPELLED TO GO HELP. AND WE HAVE MORE PSYCHOLOGISTS IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA THAN ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD."
