Listen to this Episode
Bonnie Voegeli, Psy.D., is a school psychologist in Newtown, Connecticut, helping her community recover from the shocking events of January.

Rabbi William Hamilton of Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline, Massachusetts, is also Chaplain of the Massachusetts State Police. He was one of the people called to Logan Airport in Boston to work with the families waiting in vain for their loved ones to come home on 9/11, September 11, 2001.

These are some of the front-line resources for individuals, families and indeed communities, dealing with illness, death, and wider tragedies. Fires, earthquakes, car crashes, and terrorist events all have a widespreade effect.

Bonnie and Rabbi Hamilton speak with Joyce and Mike about what they have found most helpful in taking care of people in times of crisis. None of us can control the bad things that may happen to us. All we can really control is how we respond to those events. Bonnie shares with us how Newtown is responding, and what it wants all of us to learn from their experience.
