|One World Trade Center rises from the ashes|
As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 draws near, here we bring you a round-up of psychology-related links to comment and resources (please do flag up further articles and resources via comments – thank you):
Pregnant 9/11 survivors transmitted trauma to their children. Mo Costandi for the Guardian’s Neurophilosophy blog explains the likely epigenetic mechanism.
American Psychologist has a special issue on 9/11 with twelve wide-ranging articles exploring everything from lessons learned about post-trauma intervention to the social psychological impact of the attacks (summary of the articles).
Ingrid Wickelgren for Scientific American’s Stream of Consciousness Blog offers a personal reflection on 9/11 and how social processes can affect our memories.
A Psychologist magazine article from 2007 about interviews conducted with survivors from the World Trade Center.
Psychology research into terrorism and how 9/11 has changed the field. A Psychologist magazine article from 2004.
Oliver Burkeman for The Guardian meets a young Manhattan clinical psychologist (with a specialism in trauma) who qualified not long before 9/11. “It sounds strange to say of anyone in New York on 9/11 that they were in exactly the right place at the right time, but in Paula Madrid’s case, that conclusion is hard to avoid.”
