PSYC 359 - Practicum in Disaster Response

This is a field experience course requiring students to volunteer as American Red Cross disaster relief personnel in actual disaster responses, either within South Dakota, or as members of the Red Cross Disaster Services Human Resources (national disaster team). These responses can be completed in the student’s own time frame, including the summer. Students may also substitute other volunteer work for the disaster hours. These arrangements need to be negotiated between the student and a DMHI faculty member, but some minimum level of actual disaster response will be required for satisfactory completion of the course requirements.
