Thus, in this selective report, we will primarily summarize the major research findings on emergency time human and organizational behavior in relatively sudden disasters in the United States. Because the research evidence generally is not supportive of the distinction, we do not distinguish between behaviors in disasters involving natural and technological agents. On the other hand, we primarily discuss the research results about behavior in major disasters rather than in emergencies or minor crisis since findings from studies suggest qualitative as well as quantitative behavioral differences between the former and the latter collective stress situations.
