For the 14th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks, “Declassifying the Truth: 9/11 Transparency on the Rise, 14th Anniversary Symposium,” was held on September 12, 2015, in New York City, at the West Park Presbyterian Church.
The program and speakers’ bios can be seen below the video. Five panels of experts were heard. Panel 4, which included two psychology professionals from Colorado, was titled, “Psychologists Speak Out: Empowering Ourselves and Others as We Move Forward.” The speakers were Frances Shure, William Woodward, Robert Griffin, and Marti Hopper.
The truth of 9/11 can be a shock to the psyche, and people at every level of experience, education, and intellect go through their own process of grappling with its implications. How do we transcend our own emotional responses, such as despondency, so we can be energized by the call to activism? How can we talk about 9/11 so others will listen? How did we overcome the power of the official story and surrender to the truth, and how might this apply to talking to others? The panel will reflect on these questions while also presenting specific ideas and tools to facilitate our own personal growth and to learn more constructive communication skills, helping us to become more effective toward the ultimate goal of creating a society that values transparency and truth, accountability and peace.
