The extent of avoidance among earthquake survivors is best demonstrated by the fact that 58% of the 15 000 people who were living in shelters 6 months after the earthquake had a safe and inhabitable house (Committee for Tent Cities in Kocaeli, 2000). , 2008). Many survivors preferred to live under difﬁcult conditions in camps rather than moving back to their homes or alternative accommodation. Other common examples of the ﬁrst type of avoided situations included staying alone at home, staying in the dark, taking a shower, getting undressed before going to bed, sleeping with lights off, sleeping with the bedroom door closed, or sleeping before 3 am (the time of the night when the earthquake happened), having sexual intercourse, or being in places from which escape during an earthquake would be difﬁcult.
Such estimations were in stark contrast to the fact that the overwhelming majority of the people could not get out of their home in 45 seconds during the August 17 earthquake (including the ﬁrst author who was fully awake and dressed on the second ﬂoor of a building when the earthquake started). Some people conducted drills to ﬁnd out how many seconds it took them to get out of their house; the shorter the time, the safer they felt. Reliance on safety signals Many people developed safety signals that seemed to reduce their fear.
For example, some people avoided wearing the same clothes they had on during the earthquake. A woman who was brushing her teeth during the earthquake had to change the toothbrush and the brand of the toothpaste she was using, because they evoked fear. She complained to her therapist that she was also distressed by the presence of her husband (whom she had married recently and who was with her during the earthquake), because he served as a reminder of the earthquake. Many people avoided places where they experienced shaking sensations, such as hung ﬂoors in shops that shook when people walked over them or other locations where the ground vibrations created by passing trucks could be felt.
