Presentation Transcript

  1. Ahern, et al. “Television images and post-traumatic stress disorder alter September 11” (2004)

  2. Design • Random sample of 2011 respondents living in NYC in January and February of 2002 • Interview (35 minutes) • Demographic information • How often specific scenes of 9-11 had been viewed during 7 days after the attack • Standard measure of post-traumatic stress

  3. Descriptive Findings • The most frequently viewed image was the planes hitting the towers (41 times) • Next was the buildings collapsing and people running from them (37 times) • Last was people jumping from the buildings (12 times)

  4. Statistical Relationship • High level of exposure was positively correlated to high level of post-traumatic stress • Subjects in the top 1/3 in terms of exposure were 2.5 times more likely than those in the bottom 1/3 to show report stress
