LCL joins the rest of the Boston community in our dismay and heartache over the Boston Marathon attack, as well as our admiration of the ways that the people of Boston have risen to the occasion. This kind of violence will have a deeper and more sustained impact on some of us than on others. Massachusetts lawyers and their family members, as well as law students, are of course welcome to come for consultation at LCL if their reactions remain disruptive to their lives. We also direct you to the following resources:
- American Psychological Association on Response to Trauma
- American Psychological Association on Recovering from Disasters
- National Association of Social Workers (Mass. chapter) on Guidelines to Help Children Deal with Tragedy.
