Social Psychology Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina badly damaged New Orleans and its surrounding areas. Shortly after the hurricane, there were news reports of groups of looters. Often, when under the influence of a crowd, individuals will engage in behavior they would not normally participate in. This phenomenon is referred to as deindividuation.

Research and discuss the following:

In your own words, define deindividuation and explain its process (e.g., how it works, what changes happen within the individual to allow for unusual behavior).
Identify and describe a historical event that would be a good example of deindividuation.
Discuss how deindividuation could occur outside the presence of a crowd (i.e. in other settings in which a person feels unknown).
Include at least 1 source in your paper. Use in-text citations and a reference list according to APA-style guidelines.
