    This presentation will review extensive literature regarding natural disasters and the increase in family violence often reported in the wake of these events. We will discuss specific disasters around the globe and explore similarities in household characteristics between what is reported after these events and what has been reported during the Covid-19 pandemic. Participants will learn how increased stress experienced during and after these events significantly increases risk of abuse victimization for adults, children, and pets who reside in the homes impacted. With increasing reports of family violence extending a year or more after the event and declining mental health reported for up to three years after disaster, professionals must prepare for long-term family violence victim assistance needs following the current pandemic. The importance of protecting pets to better protect people, during disaster and at all other times as well, will also be highlighted.
