Reporting for Duty:Selected Workforce Issues in Disasters
DRC Principal Investigator: Joseph E Trainor
This project was part of a larger study entitled Behavioral Aspects of Sheltering and Evacuation Planning for the National Capital Region being conducted by University of Virginia on behalf of the Virginia Department of Emergency Management.
Researchers at the DRC have been reviewing published reports and study findings focused on Role conflict, Role Strain, and Role Abandonment.
Our intent was to provide a report that uses plain language to explain what social scientists have learned about these issues and to provide recommendations on how organizations might adjust their plans and policies based on the findings.
