This book concentrates on the parallel evolution of debt crisis and digital communications in Greece. By examining four different online and social media platforms, it examines a seven-year period to uncover the impact of digital media on the contentious politics of crisis, as well as the impact of
the political economic sphere on the formation of the Greek digital mediascape.
The research employs cyberconflict theory to situate online mediated conflict in a geo-political, socio-political and historical context, revealing the dynamic relation between the online media and the offline world. The work provides an updated framework which recommends the use of online data and
the study of social media platforms for the examination of cyberconflict. It delves into the political transformations which have emerged in the context of the Greek crisis such as the anti-/pro- austerity debate, the euro-vs-drachma debate, the anti-/pro-governmental debate, or the Grexit
discussion, and shines a light on how, in the context of crisis, the online space becomes a magnifying glass which points out conflict, opposition and drives polarization.
The book fills a void by bringing together literature in an under-represented but disaster-prone region – Southeast Asia. It discusses the cultural considerations of those providing mental health and psychosocial support in the region. It highlights the role of education in reducing disaster
vulnerability. It presents ways in which workplace organization have sought to enhance employee and organizational resilience in the face of disasters. It discusses how the disaster planning process, including prevention, mitigation, and preparedness efforts, can be integrated with mental health
efforts. It features how mental health interventions including psychological first aid, resilience interventions, mindfulness, and art therapy have been carried out. It also discusses the issues of those caring for survivors and describes MHPSS interventions for disaster responders themselves. The
book also addresses post-traumatic growth as an outcomes of disaster exposure, concluding by summarizing the challenges and prospects for promoting resistance, resilience, and recovery in SEA.
