Disaster Preparedness and Business Continuity: The Psychology of a Crisis


Las Vegas, California, Puerto Rico, Houston, Parkland, Florida…..the sites of horrific traumatic events in the last five months.  We all see the news every day with graphic images of people who are survivors of wild fires, flooding, hurricanes, terrorist attacks or school children dealing with the aftermath of an active shooter at a school. But how often do we take the time to really think about what happens to us as individuals when we experience a traumatic event?  Behavioral response to stressful incidents or crises and what is actually happening in the brain can be broken down into psychological stages that help to explain why individuals react in certain ways as they experience trauma. This presentation will help those involved in crisis management gain a better understanding of the “human factor” in a crisis and learn how to use this knowledge to better prepare your firm’s crisis management team for any crisis situation or disaster they might encounter.
