Aiming at the problem of victim’s rational and irrational behavior during recovery stage in major natural disaster, this paper analyzed the victim’s psychological and behavioral characteristics and influencing factors during recovery stage based on lots of literatures and an interview with victims. Besides, a mechanism chart of the formation of the victim’s psychological behavior and a cusp catastrophe model are constructed. The catastrophe mechanism of the victim’s psychological behavior during recovery stage is simulated under the influence of the physical demand factors and the emotional needs factors. The two different functions of the two demand factors are analyzed. The model is partially verified by the investigation data of the disaster area. Finally, the paper put forward some strategies to cope with victim’s psychology and behavior during recovery stage based on the cusp catastrophe model analysis.
