JOURNAL OF ECOPSYCHOLOGY DISASTER PDF

Anger, depression, and helplessness are the main psychological responses being seen in response to the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and they are likely to have long-lasting effects, according to an interview in Ecopsychology , a peer-reviewed, online journal published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. The anger being expressed in response to the recent BP oil rig explosion and resulting spill of millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico is "a way of masking the really unfathomable and profound despair that is just under the surface as we watch this catastrophe unfold," says Deborah Du Nann Winter, PhD, Professor of Psychology at Whitman College Walla Walla, WA. In an interview published in Ecopsychology and conducted by Editorial Board member Susan Koger, PhD, Professor of Psychology at Willamette University in Salem, OR, Winter predicts a great deal of chronic depression, withdrawal, and lack of functioning among not only people directly affected by the events in the Gulf, but also people nationwide and globally who identify or empathize with their circumstances. Describing the oil spill as "the absolutely worst 'environmental' disaster" in the history of the United States, Winter discusses her own personal attempts to deal with the negative emotions she is experiencing by focusing at times on hopeful, positive feelings related to the "tremendous self-sacrifice and generosity of spirit" among those affected by the spill and those helping to contain it and clean up the oil. With the hope that the BP spill, with all the damage and suffering it is causing, will stimulate renewed environmental activism and changes in attitudes and behaviors, Winter says, "this disaster is probably just the kick in the pants that the environmental movement has needed.

Natural and human-caused disasters disturb the social-ecological system and result in much pain, death, harm, and property and environmental destruction. How do humans prepare for and cope with disasters? Psychological adaptation to disasters has been an interesting area of research for psychologists.

This non-empirical study examines the psychological literature relevant to disaster preparedness with the objective of answering the above question and describing what has been studied.

Delineated here are individual characteristics; psychological qualities; reaction to risk and hazard; effects of knowledge, experience, and action; environmental considerations and effects; and social and cultural factors. Theories of threat response and disaster preparedness are also depicted. The concluding discussion briefly summarizes the contributions, notes areas and questions that could gain from inquiry, notes how these could be useful both for psychologists and persons affected by disasters, calls for cross-boundary research, and calls for recognition of disasters, their effects, and disaster preparation as important areas of ecopsychology.
