Experiences of EMDR treatment of World Trade Center survivors of September 11

Description

My experience in treating the survivors of the World Trade Center (WTC) disaster of September 11 has, to date, been comprised of three groups: those who witnessed the event from the adjacent streets of the Wall Street financial district; those who were in the World Trade Center, on the lower floors of the North Tower (first tower hit) and were able to escape rather quickly from the building; and those who were on the upper floors (75th to 50th), taking a lengthy time to get down the stairs and then witnessing the most horrific of events inside the WTC plaza and in the street, as the towers collapsed. To date, I have treated 21 survivors.
