Mental Health Response to Mass Violence and Terrorism Training Guide

APA, BRN, CA BBS, FL, NAADAC, NBCC, TX SBEPC, TXBSWE

The events of September 11, 2001, the Oklahoma City bombing, and other events both in the
United States and abroad, have served as dramatic examples of the need for mental health
services in the wake of terrorism and mass violence. Because the risk of becoming a victim of
mass violence has risen dramatically in the last decade, the need for competent mental health
services following a disaster has increased significantly. This manual seeks to present mental
health and crime victim service providers with a comprehensive and informative resource for
assisting terrorism and mass violence victims and affected members of the communities in which
acts occur. To do so, it explores an array of reactions providers may encounter following an
incident. In addition, providers are presented with characteristics of the criminal justice system
and how best to support victims and survivors participating in this process. Furthermore, the
manual provides information for providers to understand and manage their own work-related
stress.

The primary goal of this manual is to enable mental health and crime victim service providers to
help victims, survivors, and the community-at-large cope and recover through outreach and
support. To further this goal, the manual includes a training course for providing mental health
services in the wake of a disaster. Included are field and training resources such as handouts,
overheads, and rapid field training Modules—including supplementary training for paraprofessionals.

By preparing in advance, providers will be better equipped to help victims, survivors, and
affected individuals cope with the profound losses and traumatic experiences that stem from these crimes.



The Training Manual provides indepth and comprehensive information, and references for additional reading.
