    Research from a number of different academic disciplines suggests that individual and collective response to disasters and disaster risk may be skewed by reliance on heuristics, our (mis)perceptions of disaster, the need to justify existing societal and governmental systems, and the difficulties of organizational behavior.  This panel will consider these influences on the choices we make before, during, and after disasters and consider what, if any, steps should be taken to counter these effects.
