A Victim-Centered Approach

Join us on Monday, September 9 for a day of clinically informed presentations from leading researchers, mental health practitioners and victim support organizations. The event provides a unique opportunity to learn from victims’ families, responders and survivors, as well as those who have responded to acts of terrorism and mass violence in the United States and abroad.
The day long symposium is intended to provide lessons learned and mental health considerations to prepare clinicians, victims’ services, law enforcement, emergency managers and community stakeholders for an effective response to support those impacted. Victims’ families, survivors and responders are invited to attend free of charge.
The 9/11 Memorial has generously offered complimentary tickets to visit the Museum following the Symposium.
