Impact of the World Trade Center disaster on a Manhattan psychotherapy practice
On September 11, 2001, when two hijacked planes destroyed the World Trade Center, the world changed. As a clinical psychologist practicing in Manhattan, and specializing in trauma, the author has found the event's impact upon her work to be profound. For most of her patients, in particular the severely dissociative, this event triggered the deepest feelings of vulnerability, fear and rage. She describes the varied trauma responses of her patients, effective interventions, and her own experiences as a psychologist and a New Yorker both on and since September 11.
