Crisis, Disaster and Trauma Psychology Section

The Crisis, Disaster and Trauma Psychology Section exists to provide its members with a central hub where issues of psychological trauma can be explored, research and evidence-based treatments can be examined, and ongoing standards of best practice can be established. 


Below you will find links to resources helpful to those working with responses to Disaster, Crisis and Trauma.

This currently includes advice, guidance and other publications by the CDT; links to other useful information, webpages and publications; and a link to the CDT Database of Disaster Resources produced but the CDT on behalf of the Society’s Professional Practice Board.

The Database of Disaster Resources was last update in January 2015 and takes the form of a printed document. We are currently in the process of updating this information and moving it to a more interactive format (watch this space!).

Following the Society’s re-design of our webpages the general resource links are also being updated and added to. If you are aware of useful resources or web links please do email them through to the CDT web/newsletter editor on [email protected]

Please note that links include both resources produced by the CDT section and others outside of the BPS. While links have been included on the basis of likely interest to CDT members no responsibility is taken by the CDT or BPS for the quality of these resources
