This paper examines involuntary possession disposition associated with a natural disaster. Results of a naturalistic investigation involving group and depth interviews with wildfire survivors are consistent with previous research proposing that disposition is a symbolic and meaningful process. Overall, these consumers' reactions to possession threats and losses appear to follow a sequence of stages. We also find this process to have some unique characteristics that distinguish it from other types of disposition.
