Terror Management Theory in Practice

Review the Scenario Module 3. The purpose of this assignment is to examine the practicality of the terror management theory (TMT).

In the opening of your work, provide an overview of the TMT, noting the critical aspects of the theory, to demonstrate a clear understanding of what the theory is and how it can be applied in various circumstances.

Next, discuss the overall situation manual event (Modules 1-3), including the ways in which the TMT might be applied to improving the understanding of the survivors’ coping and recovery following the terror event.

In addressing the applicability of the TMT to the explosion in the situation manual, consider the survivors’ cognitive, social, cultural, and intellectual conditions as factors of influence that might skew perceptions of death and survival.

Discuss, with detail and clear examination of the available scholarly resources, why these factors should be examined in the discussion and how, or if, they affect disaster behavioral health outcomes.

As you wrap up your work, briefly discuss the appropriateness of the use of the TMT as it compares to other theories attempting to rationalize survivor thoughts and behaviors following terror events.

Select a single theory upon which you will make the contrast, clearly identifying the foundational tenants of the theory, making a solid case for which theory is most appropriate
