Coping with Terrorism: Dreams Interrupted


    Since the shattering events of 9/11 in the USA and 7/7 in London with yet more atrocities in Madrid, Turkey, and Egypt, we have come to understand that terrorism recognizes no boundaries and respects no one. We know that however diligent our policing and security services, there are people who may breach our defences and try to hurt us again. How can we as individuals cope with this? What happens to us if we are caught in one of these dreadful events? How can we begin to look after ourselves after such an attack? What is the terrorist stress test? What are we feeling, and why? What happens to our love and sex lives? How do we cope with our job and money matters? Are there psychological survival skills to be learned? How do we help our children and teenagers to survive? How do we plan for an uncertain future and how do we cope with the deaths of loved ones and strangers? Drawing on a wealth of research, which includes interviews with London bomb victims and others, psychologist, Dr. Carole Lieberman explains what is known about our reaction to terror attacks...she also shows how we can survive the unthinkable and tells us why we should understand our enemies, warning us that terrorism is the ultimate copycat crime.
