Posted by on May 29th, 2018 Posted in: Emergency Preparedness, Mental Health, Webinars

The CDC’s CERC (Crisis & Emergency Risk Communication) webinar on the Psychology of a Crisis addresses how people process information differently during a crisis. The webinar examines the psychological barriers to communication that tend to emerge in crises, factors that impact perception of risk, and how to build trust to communicate more effectively.

At the conclusion of the session, participants will be able to accomplish the following:

  • Describe how emergency risk communication is different from regular communication.
  • Describe the psychology of a crisis.
