PrepTalks Discussion Guide: The Unthinkable: Lessons from Survivors   [open pdf - 232KB]

"PrepTalks Discussion Guides are companion documents to PrepTalk video presentations and question-and-answer (Q&A) sessions. When used together with the videos, these guides help translate the research and expertise showcased in each presentation into action steps to improve disaster preparedness. [...] Ripley's PrepTalk combines the inspiring stories of disaster survivors with research into how the brain works when confronted with unusual events. She explains that unless we have had the experience and/or the training to help us act quickly during moments of great peril, our instinctive response may be the worst possible reaction. Ripley provides advice on steps emergency managers can take now to help individuals be more decisive in emergencies."
