This chapter explores what is currently known about how terrorism impacts victims in unique and probably more profound ways than other forms of catastrophic disaster, builds a theoretical framework that explores the way in which terrorism specifically impacts traumatization and recovery, and considers the effective treatment of victims of and first responders to terrorist attacks. From these starting points, we then identify the particular skills that constitute expertise in this arena, an approach that contrasts with the more common procedure of evaluating one’s expertise on the basis of training, experience, and knowledge.
