About this item

Community Resilience: Practical Applications to Strengthen Whole Communities in Disaster blends resilience theory and empirical analysis with lessons learned from recent activities to implement and test community resilience strengthening strategies and measure resilience progress. Contributions from key settings and disciplines on the role of resilience theory and science in local implementation are included, providing a stronger operational framework for resilience science than has previously been offered. The book also elevates the discussion by integrating theory where practical handbooks have missed those considerations.

  • Provides a concise, clear definition of what community resilience is and why it matters
  • Presents a multidisciplinary approach that translates community resilience theory into implementation science
  • Includes coverage of behavioral health and disaster and the role of faith communities in strengthening community resilience
