Summary
  • "Shortly after the September 11th attacks, as the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) started their recovery work in the ruins of the World Trade Center, a large-scale mental health response within the FDNY swung into action, initiated by staff in the department's Counseling Services Unit (CSU). FDNY Crisis Counseling: Innovative Responses to 9/11 Firefighters, Families, and Communities tells the story of this ongoing response from the perspective of those who put it into practice. Using narrative, case studies, and other real-world examples, this unique new resource lays out a roadmap for applying innovative approaches to disaster response and the prevention of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. The pioneering efforts of the CSU present a model for all mental health professionals working with organizations, communities, individuals, and families."--Publisher's website
