MH 370 Disappearance: Coping with a Disaster in the Community
On March 8th, Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 originating from Kuala Lumpur, disappeared from radar screens en route to Beijing. An international search and rescue operation continues to search for the missing flight, however the cause of the disappearance remains unclear and there have been no confirmed sightings of any debris so far.
International SOS understands the difficulty in coping with this type of disaster in a community and the impact on family and friends affected by the incident. Dr. Stephen-Claude Hyatt, Head of International SOS Mental Health and Counseling department, will lead a session to discuss how to manage the impact of a traumatic incident like this, the symptoms that might arise, how to deal with it personally and how to take care of others around you, especially children.

Date: Friday, 14th Mar
