Overview

Our view of massive trauma has been indelibly shaped by the events of September 11, 2001. This extraordinary volume, with contributions by leading scholars, researchers, and clinicians, focuses on the World Trade Center attack and its psychological conseq" Growing out of the horrific events of 9/11/01, this extraordinary collection gathers information from various domains - clinical studies of trauma, developmental psychopathology, psychobiology, epidemiology - in delineating the relationship between human bonds - understood in both relational and attachment contexts - and the experience of trauma. Contributors, most of whom are New York City residents who experienced the events of 9/11, explore the quality of early emotional attachments, differences in attachment styles and family milieus, and the psychological qualities that enable traumatized parents to avoid traumatizing their children. From various disciplinary vantage points, they converge in showing how human relationships can either provide an anodyne to trauma or serve as the vehicle of its transmission.
