Here’s the episode:

This is the first of what will likely be a handful of episodes on crises and related topics. We are drawing DIRECTLY from some amazing resources from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and we’ve included a link to all of these resources in the show notes. What we love about these resources is that it’s all evidence-based, drawing upon the relevant social science literature. And it doesn’t just have to do with public health emergencies. 

  • The six principles of crisis and emergency risk communication

  • The phases of a crisis and the communication rhythm

  • Pitfalls to avoid and implications for everyone
