当对整个区域进行评估时，显示出断层图的存在，其中包含许多即将发生的危险事件(Stone, 2008)。以汶川地震为例，可以看出，灾后应激障碍的人群比例较大。创伤暴露从个体应激开始，以各种方式向社区恶化(Wang et al.， 2009)。在汶川地区的地震幸存者中，创伤后应激障碍是一种常见的健康和心理问题，需要心理专家和政府的及时干预。这些可能会解决问题，并在他们之间产生一种准备的意识。
Sichuan earthquake is known to be a violent fault of humans that was totally unpredictable. In fact, US Geological Survey states that Wenchuan earthquake has exposed over 1.3 million people to extreme stages of shaking which demanded the need for immediate reconstruction of residential areas for livelihood of people (Stone, 2008). The actual scenario depicts the existence of quake for about 6 minutes that left Chinese soil highly affected. According to people, they find the environment to be inappropriate for livelihood. Hence, they have dropped their plans to rebuild.
The entire region, when evaluated, shows the presence of fault map with lots of hazardous events that are about to happen (Stone, 2008). Given the case of Wenchuan earthquake, it is seen that a larger proportion of people are exposed to post – disaster stress disorders. The trauma exposure began from individual stress to community deterioration by various means (Wang et al., 2009). Among the earthquake, survivors who existed in the region of Wenchuan, post traumatic stress disorder was found to be a common health and mental issue that required immediate interventions from psychological specialists and government. These could possibly resolve the issue and create a sense of preparedness among them.
