Tonight, the hostess of Your Preparation Station, Donna Miller of Millers Grain House, is delighted to have back as our guest: Lecturer of Sociology Andrew Ferguson for a finale in our series.
Our topic will be “Group behavior in a crisis.” Discussiing group behavior in a crisis- short and long term, and how it applies to planning and preparation. Mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery, mitigation cycle. Also, how fear paralyzes people, makes them anti-social/psychotic/moral relativists, or…hopefully…solidifies their persona and makes them overcome their fear.

He also teaches history courses, including world civilizations and terrorism. Outside of academia, Mr. Ferguson consults on issues of disaster management and mitigation, high risk counter-terrorism tactics, and post conflict reconstruction.
