The Psychology of Risk


The Psychology of Risk

Risk surrounds and envelopes us. Without understanding it, we risk everything and without capitalising on it, we gain nothing. This accessible book from Glynis M. Breakwell, first published in 2007, comprehensively explores the psychology of risk, examining how individuals think, feel and act, as well as considering the institutional and societal assessments, rhetorics and reactions about risk. Featuring chapters on all the major issues in the psychology of risk including risk assessment, hazard perception, decision-making, risk and crisis management, risk and emotion, risk communication, safety cultures, the social amplification and social representation of risk and mechanisms for changing risk responses, Breakwell uses illustrations and examples to bring to life the significance of her research findings. She provides an innovative overview of current knowledge on the subject but also suggests that there are many fascinating questions still to be answered.


 Reviews:

"...recommend the book highly, especially for those seeking a broader understanding of risk. It will be a useful reference for people interested in risk, a text for students in decision making, and a supplementary resource for students and practitioners in occupations that manage risk, including management, psychology, political science, medicine, and public health. The book differs from other available texts and fills an important need. In particular, it addresses unmet needs for realistic, multidisciplinary risk perception and management methods. A broad variety of readers need to be exposed to such ideas, which are instructively inclusive and engagingly subversive for disciplinary minds."
