    The full title of the article is “Adjustment Reactions: The Teachable Moment in Crisis Communication”. Sounds like a mouthful, but it’s written in an easily accessible way. It’s not a very long read, either, so it’s a nice bite-sized portion on an otherwise complicated and long research subject.

    The reason I posted the link here is because it could really come in handy when writing characters in certain situations. It goes through the ‘knee-jerk’ reaction people have towards new risk and what kinds they tend to be. And that this is automatic and actually can play a positive role later in a crisis.

    I can see using parts of this in future stories, which of course means putting characters in tough spots! But then, we’re writers. That’s what we do. 😛
