This has been a most unusual academic year at Wurzweiler and much haschanged since my last message to you.In the days following the tragic events of September 11 and the subsequentcrash of American Airlines flight #587 bound for the Domi-nican Republic on November 12, Wurzweiler School of Social Work faculty and staff lent their knowledge andskills to the families of the survivors and rescue workers.Yeshiva University is situated in a neighborhood thatwas directly affected by the crash in Belle Harbor, as190 passengers had direct ties to the community inWashington Heights.Dr. Adele Weiner, associate dean of WSSW, served asour representative on a special community task force,which City Councilman Guillermo Linares (WashingtonHeights) asked us to join.Admissions Director Michele Sarracco and Dr. Martin Birnbaum, Beate andHenry Voremberg Professor of Social Group Work, and Adjunct Assistant Pro-fessor Renee Schlesinger consoled rescue workers, doctors, and families at RedCross headquarters and other venues. Dr. Ronnie Glassman, director of fieldinstruction, together with Assistant Directors of Field Instruction Ruth Bigmanand Roberta Rohdin, and Adjunct Associate Professor David Phillips, offered theirexpertise at Cantor Fitzgerald’s counseling and crisis intervention site at thePierre Hotel in Manhattan. Dr. Beth Grube, assistant professor, continued herwork in debriefing firefighters. Wurzweiler also offered short-term trauma coun-seling to the YU community.Dr. Joan Beder, ’93, associate professor, assisted the Long Island Red Cross andconducted a memorial service for the Long Island Ethical Humanist Society. Dr.Rozetta Wilmore-Schaeffer, assistant professor, volunteered as a counselor with theRed Cross in Bergen County (NJ)
(see page 4)
.Associate Professors Dr. Susan Mason and Dr.David Strug, who have been work-ing in the Washington Heights community on a social service needs study, lenttheir expertise to the local school district and are now working with newly electedCity Councilman Miguel Martinez’s office and community agencies in developinga rapid response plan for the Washington Heights community.In December, we sent Dr. Beder to a four-day training institute sponsored bythe International Critical Incident Stress Foundation (ICISF), where she receivedadvanced training in interventions with large and small groups following a criticalincident. She is now registered with ICISF teams in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.Since December, Dr. Birnbaum has been facilitating a support group, sponsoredby the Children’s Aid Society, for maintenance workers who were employed at theWorld Trade Center before September 11. Most are suffering from post-traumaticstress syndrome.Slowly, we are beginning to regain some sense of normality, although check-points at bridges and tunnels, the presence of National Guard troops, and increasedsecurity at the University are a clear reminder that the world has changed. It willtake years for the losses and sense of vulnerability to dissipate. The skills of theprofession have been recognized. We are proud that Wurzweiler was able to playa small part in response to this tragedy.Keep in touch.Sheldon R. Gelman
