Attention has always been focused on various aspects of trauma, whether the traumas were large scale or individual or occurring as a single event or as a series of ongoing repeated events, as for instance, war, domestic violence, or a catastrophic health condition. The study of these various types of events, though, was generally compartmentalized. In the early 1990s, however, a series of large-scale stressful events—the Persian Gulf Crisis, the first World Trade Center bombing, the Long Island Railroad shooting, and finally, in the mid-1990s, the Oklahoma City bombing—shook the security of our nation. As a result of these high-profile events, the news media began to increasingly cover the human side of disasters, paying special attention to the trauma experienced by both the survivors and the public. This attention at first appeared specific to each event that occurred; yet it soon became obvious that for mental health professionals and the public a broader understanding was necessary to put the events in context and to understand the relationship of short-term intervention to longer-term treatment.
