Television Coverage of 9/11 and Risk for PTSD among Children

By September 13, 2007

Follow me on:

The effects of the tragic events of September 11, 2001 were inescapable. Even people far away from the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon were exposed to upsetting and traumatic images. This was largely due to the extensive television coverage of the terrorist attacks. A study in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders, conducted by Dr. Michael Otto and colleagues at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, examined whether this extensive media coverage may have put children at risk for the development of PTSD. Read about this interesting new study here.

Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress
or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!
