Posted: 08/06/2012 - A University of Colorado Colorado Springs professor wants to help survivors of the Waldo Canyon fire recover and use lessons learned to help future disaster victims. Lori James, associate professor, Department of Psychology, seeks up to 200 people to participate in a research study about difficulties they are experiencing in the wake of Colorado’s worst wildfire, June 23 to July 5. Those difficulties can include anxiety or depression that occurred as a result of loss of property or income, the stress of evacuations, or fears caused by news coverage of the fire. She is particularly interested in people who feel they are experiencing significant distress at this time.
