Abstract:

Explores the psychology of risk, examining how individuals think, feel and act, as well as considering the institutional and societal assessments, rhetorics and reactions about risk. Featuring chapters on all the major issues in the psychology of risk including risk assessment, hazard perception, decision-making, risk and crisis management, risk and emotion, risk communication, safety cultures, the social amplification and social representation of risk and mechanisms for changing risk responses, the author uses examples to bring to life the significance of her research findings. She provides an overview of current knowledge on the subject but also suggests that there are many questions still to be answered.
