This paper notes that there appears to be substantial empirical support for each of two opposing views in a controversy. There is a psychiatric literature which argues that natural disasters can cause severe negative psychological reactions in victims. An opposing literature, generated by sociologists and psychologists, purports to show that natural disasters do not produce adverse reactions. This paper argues that the apparent empirical stalemate ∼s probably a function of methodological difficulties, and seeks to explain the contradictory findings on the basis of different measurement strategies and problems of study design.
