Abstract: This paper pays tribute to the practitioners and scholars who have extended their fields of interest to include disasters, and it raises questions that arose from personal involvement in a few of such extraordinary events. It is written in the hope of encouraging more novitiates to broaden their perspective and respond to the academic and professional challenges that calamities provoke. The outcome should also do very much to demonstrate that psychology is both an academic and an applied discipline.
