TRINDADE, Melina Carvalho  e  SERPA, Monise Gomes. The role of psychologists in emergency and hazard situations. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.13, n.1, pp. 279-297. ISSN 1808-4281.

Disasters can result in personal, material, environmental and human harm. From this perspective, this work aims to discuss about the possible psychological interventions and the Psychology collaboration facing emergency events and disasters. Therefore, a qualitative research is carried out, in which a semi-structured interview with two psychologists who work in these situations is applied. The study demonstrates a change in the Psychological professional approach regarding the theme, which goes from the diagnosis to the community prevention, proposing interventions that set people's subjectivity as a priority. It is also stressed the importance of the subject being discussed and developed in public policies and in an interdisciplinary way. Furthermore, it is emphasized that the psychologist role in this context is broad, covering the several Psychology fields.
