Abstract:
Argues that rather than resisting or extinguishing risk we need to embrace it and better understand it from a psychological and cultural perspective. It advocates the approach of ‘psychosocial risk’, ‘psychosocial safety’ or ‘psychosocial security’ when applied to the safety and security industries. This book is the first in the series on risk.
 
Contents include: Myths about risk; Gambling and risk; Language, culture and discourse; Learning, motivation and risk; The unconscious and risk; Sensemaking, mindfulness and risk; Framing and the language of zero; and Leadership and conversations in risk.
