Managing the Traumatic Stress of Terrorism
Courses and Workshops (1-2 days)

These courses are delivered by an experienced Israeli team of mental health professionals and social workers. We draw on the direct experience of Israel's largest hospitals and thousands of victims of terrorism during the last four years of unrelenting attacks, resulting in over 6,000 casualties. The target audience includes ED staff, social workers, psychologists and psychiatrists.

What Is a Traumatic Event?

An event, or series of events, that causes moderate to severe stress reactions, is called a traumatic event. Traumatic events are characterized by a sense of horror, helplessness, serious injury, or the threat of serious injury or death. Traumatic events affect survivors, rescue workers, and friends and relatives of victims who have been directly involved. In addition to potentially affecting those who suffer injuries or loss. They may also affect people who have witnessed the event either firsthand or on television. Stress reactions immediately following a traumatic event are very common, however, most of the reactions will resolve within ten days.
