GINAORLANDO, MA, CH, CHICAGOHEALERS.COM practitioner: "The feeling of anxietyamong people linked to tragedies, such as the recent Northern IllinoisUniversity shooting, I described as 'post-tragedy syndrome.' This cannot bediagnosed, but felt from grief, fear and trauma as a result of any recenttragedy.

When anystudent, or civilian, experiences a tragedy like the one at NIU, it can oftenoccupy a lot of one's thoughts and almost feels like it's running like anegative loop in your mind. The truth of the matter is, tragedy can happen toany of us at any time, but the trick is not to put your focus there. Focusshould be on the positive, the healing and the relief."
