Social workers are increasingly engaged in supporting individuals and communities in long-term disaster recovery. Rebuilding Lives Post-Disaster brings together an international team of social work researchers who have investigated the experiences, perspectives, challenges, and complexities in disaster recovery. It features country case studies drawing from field research undertaken in disaster-affected communities in Canada, the United States, Australia, India, Pakistan, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, and China. In so doing, the volume provides a comprehensive perspective on the realities of disaster recovery and explores key concepts such as resilience, community-based disaster risk reduction, and social and gendered construction of vulnerability and capabilities. Undergraduate and graduate students and professionals in the fields of social work, community development, international social work, emergency management, and related fields will find the text to be a helpful resource.

"This much-needed book brings to life current social work theory and practice in post-disaster recovery environments. It showcases the strength of international collaborations in understanding this work-each case study powerfully illustrates that recovery is unique to each disaster situation,
yet common in terms of the imperative of rebuilding lives. With gender, inclusion, and social context at the forefront, this book is an invaluable reflection on social work's contribution to recovery work."

--Lou Harms, PhD, MSW, Professor, Department of Social Work, University of Melbourne

Julie L. Drolet, PhD, MSW, is Professor in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary's Central and Northern Alberta Region (CNAR) in Edmonton, Alberta. She is also Principal Investigator of the Rebuilding Lives Post-Disaster research partnership.
