TECH TARIK | 9/11 Special: Empathy for Disaster Survivors
We're very #blessed to have Judith Francis, a 9-11 survivor and psychologist, share her stories ♥
On September 11th, 2001, Judith was there on the 102nd floor of the WTC’s (World Trade Center) South Tower; when the second plane hit, she was on the 86th floor turning onto the 85th floor and watching the walls broken through by this force that kept coming in the direction of her and her colleagues, as they ran down the stairs. She had observed the hit on the North Tower and began running down the stairwell minutes later, after first checking for her co-workers whereabouts.
Though Judith survived the attack on the WTC, she struggled with PTSD; the daily panic attacks continued for months and many years following the event. The psychologist was now a patient who had to take care of herself in ways she wasn’t sure she could.Judith would be sharing on her struggle to rebuild her life after surviving the major disaster. She would share how she coped on a daily basis, in her capacity as a psychologist herself; and how she refused to be victimized by the situation. Most importantly, the talk will include her perspective on how she wanted and still wants to be treated by others after this major life-changing event.
