Disasters: A Sociological Approach (and using Covid-19 as an example)

Join me May 7/20 – Disasters are disaster because they impact society; the way we mitigate, prepare, respond, and recover from negative situations, including the Covid-19 pandemic. We speak with globally recognized sociologist, researcher and author, Professor Kathleen Tierney, as we discuss her book “Disasters: A Sociological Approach” with a slant to the Covid-19 pandemic. Prof, Tierney will talk to us about the social aspects of risks, preparedness and recovery. We’ll also chat about how Covid-19 is challenging different societies with their response, as there is no ‘blanket’ approach to the pandemic. Prof. Tierney will also talk to us about how our responses, including those related to Covid-19, differ from the perceptions that many falsely believe. Disasters impact society and Prof. Tierney opens our eyes about how we need to look beyond our usual disaster fears and address disasters using a sociological approach.

Enjoy!

When a disaster or crisis strikes, the wish of many organizations is to bounce back from the situation. However, Resilience is not about bouncing back, it’s so much more.
We talk with best selling authors Jennifer Eggers & Cynthia Barlow and their international best-selling book “Resilience – It’s Not About Bouncing Back”.
Cynthia and Jennifer will talk to us about where our resilience comes from and how we can make ourselves and organizations, resilient.
Jennifer and Cynthia will also give us insight on where resilience comes from; it’s not what you might think.
A truly enlightening episode on Resiliency not to be missed.
