Abstract

The article discusses the multi-dimensional challenges in response to the tsunami in Aceh province of Indonesia in 2005. Disaster mitigation and community rehabilitation were hampered due to the absence of viable local organization, weak government social service system, and post-armed separatist conflict in the province. The Indonesian Professional Social Worker Association developed a strength-based approach for families in this situation using community resource persons.
