Although this six-hour seminar was entitled “Three Paradigms of Radiological Risk Communication,” NPHIC asked me to go easy on the “radiological” part and give participants a broad introduction to my approach to risk communication, mentioning radiation issues from time to time. So that’s what I did.
Part One is a 90-minute introduction to the hazard-versus-outrage distinction and the three paradigms of risk communication.
Part Two runs 155 minutes. It discusses the seesaw and other risk communication games (thus completing the introductory segment), then spends a little over an hour each on some key strategies of precaution advocacy and outrage management.
Part Three is a 72-minute rundown on some key crisis communication strategies.
Questions and comments from the audience are interspersed throughout, and are sometimes inaudible.
