Krys Kaniasty, Department of Psychology, reviewed recent empirical findings concerning two very different, at times conflicting, dynamic social processes that emerge after natural disasters: the initial outpouring of immense mutual helping and solidarity, followed by a subsequent sense of loss in the quality of interpersonal and community relationships.

The paper, titled“Social support, interpersonal, and community dynamics following disasters caused by natural hazards,” is part of a special issue on socio-ecological psychology published by Current Opinion in Psychology.
