Communique, v40 n1 p1, 16, 18 Sep 2011
Ten Septembers ago, people witnessed the worst terrorist attack ever committed on American soil. Most Americans can still see the images of airplanes violently crashing into buildings. On that fateful September day in 2001, the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) was faced with the challenge of trying to support the needs of children, families, and educators who were affected by an unforeseen national crisis. The NASP office, the National Emergency Assistance Team (NEAT) team, and other affiliated experts in crisis management were fully mobilized in response to the 9/11 attack. Members of the NEAT team provided information and consultation services to schools, families, and communities as rapidly as possible. In this article, the authors discuss the 10th anniversary of September 11 and NASP's response to the nation's youth.
