The psychological and emotional impact of 9/11


Hour 2

Following our special presentation of “Out of the Shadows, we take an hour to reflect, react and explore further the issues and ideas contained in Maiken Scott’s radio documentary about post-traumatic stress. We’ll talk about the psychological and emotional impact of 9/11, especially, and what counselors and researchers found in working with people working through their emotions and reactions to the traumatic events of that day 10 years ago. Our guests are Dr. LINDA WELSH, director of The Anxiety & Agoraphobia Treatment Center in Bala Cynwyd and Clinical Associate in the Department of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania; and Dr. SANDRA BLOOM, associate professor in Health Management and Policy at the Drexel University School of Public Health and president of CommunityWorks, an organizational consulting firm committed to the development of nonviolent environments.
