“Out of the Shadows” — a radio documentary about Post-Traumatic Stress


Hour 1

In our continuing coverage of the 10th anniversary of the events surrounding 9/11, we break from our usual format to air  “Out of the Shadows,” a WHYY special produced by Maiken Scott. Post-Traumatic Stress has become a buzzword and mental health professionals, politicians and policy makers vow to address our emotional response to tragic events and crises better and more quickly. But – what have we really learned about addressing trauma in the decade since September 11, 2001? This hour-long documentary examines the issue of trauma through several lenses, and takes a look at how we cope as individuals, institutions, communities, and countries.
