The physical effects of a disaster are usually obvious. Tens or hundreds or
thousands of people lose their lives. The survivors suffer pain and disability. Homes,
workplaces, livestock, and equipment are damaged or destroyed. The short-term
emotional effects of disaster -- fear, acute anxiety, feelings of emotional numbness, and
grief -- may also be obvious. For many victims, these effects fade with time. But for
many others, there may be longer-term emotional effects, both obvious and subtle.
