S&T FORUM: TRAUMA ASSOCIATED WITH POST-DISASTER EVENTS
Monday, 15 February 2016 11:56

Director Renato Solidum, Jr. and other staff of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) attended a Science and Technology (S & T) Forum regarding “Trauma Associated with Post-Disaster Events” at the 2nd floor Conference Room, PHIVOLCS building on February 12, 2016.

Dr. Dale Dominey-Howes, Associate Professor in University of Sydney, discussed how researchers may suffer trauma from working in a traumatic or disaster-stricken environment. “Disasters don’t happen in nature, disaster happens to us,” he said.

Although usually, researchers must be careful in asking participants or survivors to relive stressful events, and must protect their subjects during interview or field work, it is often neglected that a researcher might be vulnerable during the course of their work and suffer trauma as well. Researchers or those who work in disaster-stricken areas could experience Vicarious or Secondary Trauma that might be triggered by a previous traumatic experience, extended periods of exposure, lack of support networks, as well as age and gender.

Dominey-Howes said that despite expectations of being professional during work, it is normal [or human] to be overwhelmed by emotions specially while working in a place that was struck by disaster such as earthquake, tsunami, and volcanic eruption. He explained that working with emotions gives a researcher a chance improve his work by doing self-reflect , and quoted “reflection is a process of constant, self- conscious scrutiny of the self as researcher and of the research process” (England, 1994).

He also shared his experiences highlighting the two types of reflections: (1) a direct personal, where he experienced first-hand being overwhelmed by his emotions during a field work in Turkey and; (2) indirect professional, which he felt through a subordinate who worked extensively in Thailand. 

He explained that it is important to acknowledge Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and conduct necessary activities to strengthen emotional and mental health.  Dominey-Howes also enumerated possible courses of action to be able to move forward such as counseling, having a time out or break from work, meditate, and relax.

After ending his presentation with the quotes, “We are all human and emotions affect us” and “Put aside logic, do what feels right”, Director Solidum shared his experiences and acknowledged that putting aside personal feelings to be able to perform a task is important, but being overwhelmed by emotion is inevitable. Dominey-Howes said that it is good that PHIVOLCS conducts activities to relieve stress/trauma, and he thinks that PHIVOLCS is like a family that supports each other.

PHIVOLCS Conducts REDAS Training for Region I Researchers in Academe and Other Government Agencies
Friday, 29 January 2016 12:45

PHIVOLCS-conducted a six-day training entitled, “Capacity Enhancement of Region I Researchers in Academe and Other Government Agencies on Hazards, Risk Assessment, and Exposure Database Development through the Use of the REDAS Software” last 18 – 23 January 2016. The training was held at Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU), Batac City, Ilocos Norte. The aim of the training was to provide and familiarize the participants with the capability of REDAS software, specifically the modules that can be used for risk assessment.  The training was a part of the PCIEERD-funded project entitled “Regional Disaster Science and Management S&T Capacity Development (Phase II)”. 

There was a total of 51 participants during the training, 24 of them came from the different State Colleges and Universities (SUCs) in Region 1. The said SUCs are Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU), Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (DMMSU), Pangasinan State University (PSU), University of Northern Philippines (UNP), North Luzon Philippines State College (NLPSC), and Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State College (ISPSC). There were eight participants from the different local government units in Region 1. There were also 19 guest participants from DILG-I, DOST-1, DPWH-1, NEDA-1, OCD-1, and Isabela State University-Echague (ISU-E). The participants were provided with REDAS version 2.8X. A total of 51 license keys was issued during the said training.

The first day of the training covered the introduction of PHIVOLCS, installation and orientation on the basic features of the REDAS software.  The following days of the training covered hazards lectures, Building Risk Database, Earthquake Risk Assessment, Use of SQLite as Relational and Spatial Database System, and Seismic Hazard Assessment. In addition, installation of the softwares Exposure Database Module (EDM), Sqlite and Quantum GIS, and the EDM and MyTracks in android devices were conducted during the training. They were taught how to use the EDM in Android Devices for building survey. Different Earthquake Risk Assessment Methodologies and computations were also taught in the training as well as identifying building earthquake damage levels for earthquake risk assessment.  The highlight also was the provision of the EDM for Android Version 1.5, which was introduced in a REDAS batch for the first time.

The participants showed enthusiasm and were very thankful because according to them, the tool will be able to help them determine the possible impacts given earthquake scenarios, which will help them prepare and plan accordingly.

Speakers and facilitators during the training were Bartolome C. Bautista, Maria Leonila P. Bautista, Julius Galdiano, Sharon Juliet M. Arruejo, Policarpio L. Mabborang, Jr., Jyrus Jyles D. Cadiente, Elmer Rosete, Dave Andrei V. Rivera, Greggue Ann Lyza T. Castro, Ruffy R. Villanueva, John Ted S. Sison, Frances Marie G. Yanos, and Jayson L. Silang
