HT045 - Ferry Boat Disaster in South Korea (with Korean translation)

Cirecie A. West-Olatunji, PhD, Eunhui Yoon


Cirecie A. West-Olatunji, PhD is associate professor and director of the Center for Traumatic Stress Research at the University of Cincinnati. She is also president of the American Counseling Association (ACA).  Dr. West-Olatunji’s research projects focus on the relationship between traumatic stress and systemic oppression.

Eunhui Yoon is a doctoral candidate in the counselor education program at the University of Florida. Ms. Yoon is co-author of an article on, "culture centered perspective disaster counseling," published in the Journal of Asian Pacific Counseling (2013).  Additionally, she facilitated a disaster counseling workshop (2011) for professional school counselors led by Dr. West-Olatunji that was held in post-Katrina New Orleans.

Among others, Rebecca Daniel-Burke, asks the following questions:

  • How has the media's portrayal of the ferry accident affected the people of Korea?
  • What problems did survivors have working for the ferry company?
  • How have family relations been affected?
  • Has anything positive come from the disaster and recovery?
  • How did the survivors see their life changing from before the disaster to now?
  • Tell us how the accident and other disasters (such as the BP oil spill and Hurricane Katrina) are alike? Different?
  • How have Korean professional counselors responded to this current disaster?
  • How might other children who have knowledge of the ferry disaster react to this crisis?
  • Where are some resources for professional counselors and other mental health professionals who are working with affected children as well as adults?
  • Where can parents/caregivers learn more about how to respond to disasters to aid their children in recovery?
