America has never seen a tragedy the scope of which we witnessed last week. Beyond the loss of life and destruction in New York and Washington, the psychological impact of the terrorist acts are overwhelming and profound, affecting the entire country.
This week, The Infinite Mind public radio program presents a special one-hour report on "Terror: Trauma and Healing." The show examines the psychology of terror and the effect on people across the U.S. The program features top clinicians who have studied terror attacks, callers, and experts in treating the effects of terrorism. It offers helpful, practical information about how all Americans can "fight back" against an enemy who seeks to find his way inside us.
The Infinite Mind is hosted by Dr. Fred Goodwin, former director of the National Institute of Mental Health.
Guests on the program include:
The Infinite Mind currently airs on more than 170 public radio stations, and is produced in association with WNYC/NY. Contact your local public radio station for the broadcast time and date in your area (for the public radio station in your area, visit www.theinfinitemind.com/stations.htm)
