This article describes the effects of displacement on sociospatial bonds, associated with the change of residential environment in displaced persons from the city of Chaitén, as a result of the eruption of the volcano of the same name. 144 questionnaires were applied to men and women who currently live in different towns in the provinces of Llanquihue and Palena. Levels of place attachment and place identity were measured relative to its past and present neighborhood; sense of community, civic participation and Residential Satisfaction, on scales of current city and neighborhood. The results show differences in levels of place attachment and place identity in relation to their neighborhood of origin and current; medium levels of sense of community, low of participation and medium of Residential Satisfaction, in relation to its current neighborhood. Psycho-environmental implications about the physical and social aspects of residential experience in displacement processes are discussed.
