Am looking for recent research that speaks to doing education and outreach in a society framed by fear - both of manmade disasters such as 9/11 and the Iraq War, and natural disasters. What language, images, graphics, etc. should we use to present toxics and hazardous substances - or other potentially scary topics - that engages people in behavior change - without creating more fear or apathy?
