A model for law enforcement resiliency

Cherie Castellano, George S. Everly

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


September 11, 2001, will forever be etched in the author’s memory as a day compounded by a loss she experienced on November 12, 2001. On that day, her father died on one side of the Atlantic Ocean while she was trapped on the other. As she look back, two individuals stand out in her mind. The first is J. M., a woman in her midseventies who survived the Holocaust and her son’s death in the World Trade Center (WTC). The second person is forty-five-year-old S. L., who was referred by Federal Employment and Guidance Service (FEGS). J. M’s family perished in the Holocaust and she lost an eight-year-old son, who died after being hit by a car, and, on 9/11/01, lost another son in the WTC disaster that she calls the American Holocaust. S. L., a man with chronic disabilities, including cognitive and behavioral limitations, was desperate for a program that would help him without further increasing his generalized fears.
