Summary Crises do not occur in cultural vacuums, but help often does. Lack of cultural understanding, sensitivity, and competencies can hamper and even harm professional response to disasters. To help and heal, one must know and understand the cultural background of disaster victims. This text offers readers knowledge in these areas of disaster response.
