Crisis Communications and Risk Communications: Basic Principles
Define crisis communication and analyze what are effective practices; identify at least 4 principles of effective crisis communications.
Communication is more than picking a communication channel (face-to-face communication, broadcast media, mobile channels, electronic communication and written communication), styles (visual/audio/kinesthetic/auditory digital), medium (physical, mechanical), and mode (interpersonal, interpretive, presentational). Communication begins with the message formulation (who, what, where, when), the encoding for the intended recipient (who & why), and the confirmation of message receipt and proper interpretation (the feedback loop).
You may find that this website may help stimulate your consideration of the field of communication, and its primary purpose! http://www.communicationtoolbox.com/communication-definition.html
What are the basic principles that we must follow if we expect to have effective communications, moving people to action?
Coppola & Maloney present various models based on communication science. Chapter one is helpful now. The balance of this book’s instruction will be helpful as you prepare your major deliverable, your Risk Communication campaign.
The amount of research and work to create an effective risk communication program is not obvious. The identification of all of the factors identified in Chapter 1 is a specialty in itself. Pay particular attention to the complexity of factors that impact on human behavior. Think about an individual, group, or community that you have intimate knowledge about and see if you can identify the multiple factors that would reflect where to begin to develop a risk communication program. What message would cause a change in their behavior?
Remember – READ SMART – if you are very familiar with the content in a reading, skim to refresh and move on to readings that cover material you are less fluent with. Ask yourself – can I talk for 3-5 minutes on this topic meaningfully?
