Abstract:

Comprehensive workplace preparedness for terrorism must address and integrate the psychological and behavioral aspects of terrorism preparedness and response in order to address issues of human continuity. Recognizing the beliefs and attitudes that influence behavior and drive behavioral change is essential if organizations are to effectively commit time to educate employees about preparedness and to practice preparedness behaviors. Understanding human continuity issues must also inform development of the interventions that can protect, sustain, and foster the recovery of individuals and facilitate resumption of work and performance.
