Healing After Tragedy
Mass shootings are so frequent in the US that their aftermaths follow a mostly predictable pattern for the public-at-large. But nothing could be further from the truth in the impacted community where, in addition to the grief-stricken victims’ friends and families, everyone from the first responders and doctors to the local clergy and area leaders, are thrown into uncharted territory. Melissa Glaser offers a practical and much-needed guide for local officials, emergency workers, mental health professionals and anyone else dealing with the daunting task of supporting and healing a community after tragedy and trauma. She is a licensed professional counselor who’s been providing clinical psychotherapy services for the past 28 years and serves on the Newtown Recovery and Resiliency Team.
