On September 11, 2001 the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York and Pentagon in Washington DC traumatized the nation.  All people responded in very intense ways to the unspeakable violence randomly inflicted upon innocent Americans.  For some, especially the surviving family members and emergency personnel, this intense reaction can become so severe that it requires treatment.

Although most counselors and therapists have heard about terrorism, they don't understand the deep psychological, social, and cultural reactions that the acts of terrorism are designed to accomplish.  As a result, they often fail to see the complex process of coping with an act of horrible terror.  The purpose of the following articles is to begin posting practical information and effective techniques for helping people whose response to terrorism causes so much pain and dysfunction that they need treatment.
