Seldom has an event in the world had such a pervasive and all-encompassing effect as the brutal terrorist attacks on New York and Washington in September, 2001. Has our world become a different place as a result? If so, in what ways? Along with the tragic aspects, what might this “global nightmare” have to give us, the human inhabitants of this world? What is there for us to acknowledge and what old and new wounds have been opened? Beyond the obvious scars, what sort of a legacy has it left behind?
These big questions and many more face us now in the aftermath. In this book, the highly complex incident of ’911’ is circled and examined from many angles by a variety of writers who all share a training in depth psychology. What might a psychotherapist or depth psychologist perceive in this eruption of shocking contents?
