A new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), Resilience - The Art of Coping with Disasters, which touches upon the internal and external resources and tools necessary for handling stressful situations and for emerging with increased strength from such experience, starts next week (April 16, 2019). The team behind the course is led by Prof. Limor Aharonson-Daniel (pictured below) of BGU's Faculty of Health Sciences & PREPARED Center for Emergency Response Research.
Resilience is a necessary capacity in the successful and effective management in the context of emergencies, and resilience can be taught and practiced. The course aims to introduce the concept of resilience and its relevance in various arenas and times; to portray the impact of the disaster on individuals, families, communities, organizations, infrastructure and the interfaces between them; to clarify the terminology and key areas of resilient management; and to provide learners with a broad perspective on the resilient management of disasters and emergencies over the disaster timeline sequence.
