In the wake of cataclysmic physical and natural destruction and human displacement and suffering, I think her wise and caring perspective is urgently needed now. I'm sure she has had trauma training and worked with traumatized clients as a psychotherapist. I'm sure she can inform the general public on how trauma appears behaviorally and emotionally in individuals, what to do for and say to trauma survivors, and what social and psychological services are needed. I'm also sure she can give us an historical perspective on how trauma survivors have traditionally come together in communities to push beyond the wreckage of their lives and what is needed now legislatively and morally. I personally am tired of listening to the howling winds of Irma, the rushing waters of Harvey and the sympathetic but endless news reportage of weather conditions with no detailed discussions of longterm recovery plans. I want to hear what this gifted healer Dr. Harriet Fraad has to say.
