Disaster response is socially arranged in complex ways by group and organizational considerations.
In this presentation I consider:
Groups as causal factors
e.g. negligent companies, terrorists
Groups as processes
Intra-group and inter-group
e.g. mass psychogenic illness
e.g. identification between helpers and victims
e.g. inter-agency communication
Groups as moderators
e.g. influence of families, communities on responses
Groups as outcomes
victim groups – wider than primary victims
e.g. families, friends, organizations, communities, public, first responders.
