The Flood Recovery Process: Understanding People’s Everyday Realities

Following on from the success of our free course ‘Supporting Children & Young People After Flooding’, this new course uses case studies to examine the impacts of flooding and what the experiences of flood-affected residents can teach us about supporting people during and after traumatic events.

How do people recover from flood disasters and how can the experience of recovery enhance their resilience? This course is based on in-depth research with flood-affected people, drawing on a set of detailed weekly diaries and regular group discussions following the devastating floods of 2007. 

The evidence and testimonies gathered from a group of residents in Kingston upon Hull reveals how the recovery process of people, families and neighbourhoods is shaped by both existing social vulnerabilities and experience of disaster management practices.

The material gathered and analysed by Lancaster University from one of the worst affected cities in 2007 shows what the experiences of flood-affected residents can teach us about supporting people during  and after traumatic events.
