9/11 TRAUMA, MENTAL HEALTH CONSEQUENCES, TIME AND COGNITION BASED ON NARRATIONS
Keywords:9/11 Trauma, Mental Health, Cognition, Narrations
AbstractAbstract. A hermeneutical understanding of cultural trauma interpreting it as an unending process of intervention and meaning-making infers that next generations will keep acknowledging grievances of the past as momentous. Succeeding generations, despite the fact that they were not contemporary to the events in question, linger to recognize, express, and concede the wounds of the past by way of something that enlightens their identity as a group in the present. In this paper the mental health ramifications of Trauma by discussing the 9/11 incident are being discussed. Being disturbing and omnipresent, that is to say indelible, are the pivotal features to lead a trauma to be trauma both on the psychological and the cultural levels since the long-term effects of trauma “in the memories of an individual resemble the enduring effects of national trauma in collective consciousness. Dismissing or ignoring the traumatic experience is not a reasonable option.
