After the World Trade Center terrorist attacks on 9/11/01, New York's art therapy community found itself faced with difficult political, professional, and emotional challenges. As volunteerism across this country responded to the need for assistance, many New York art therapists were on the front lines of a wounded and frightened city while attempting to simultaneously cope with the devastation they themselves had survived or witnessed. This article presents the stories of five metropolitan-area art therapists who were actively engaged in relief efforts and who, by joining to write this paper, came together to offer solace and cope as a community.
