AIPM Offers Free Disaster Preparedness Guidebook


Learn how to handle a crisis and move forward. The American Institute for Preventive Medicine offers a free guide that helps people prepare for disasters and deal with the emotions of anxiety, guilt, confusion and fear that follow a crisis or tragedy.

Farmington Hills, MI, January 27, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Disasters produce feelings of fear, depression, helplessness and sadness. People want to know, How should I feel? How can I help others? What do I tell my children? How can I prepare? Should I buy emergency supplies? How do I move on?

To help people live their lives after a disaster, the American Institute for Preventive Medicine has published Take Charge: Handling a Crisis and Moving Forward. The 32-page, full-color booklet teaches readers how to be prepared to handle any disaster, be it a hurricane, tornado, fire, mass violence or act of terrorism.

In the wake of the tragedy in Tuscon, AZ, AIPM is making an guidebook available to the public at no charge for the next 60 days.

"We want people to feel safe and prepared for a crisis," says Dr. Don Powell, President and CEO of the American Institute for Preventive Medicine. "Take Charge can help you take control of difficult situations."

Topics include:
Reactions to a crisis
Handling anxiety
Coping with loss
Dealing with insomnia
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
Getting on with your life
Being prepared for a disaster
How to help others

Take Charge is available to download for free on AIPM's website. The download code is NWH350.
