the psychological effects on the survivors of the oklahoma tornado will last months and could be years. a tragedy like this changes lives forever. as the after math of the crisis continues to unfold the community could face a flood of requests for mental health services and counseling. i want to bring in two people to talk about this. joining me from oklahoma is dr. robin, a medical director in the emergency department at moore medical center. first of all, doctor, thank you so much for all that you guys have done over the past week. it is a tragedy but your work means so much. thank you for that. i want to talk first about how you and all of those you work with, the first responders and doctors, how are they doing in the wake of this? >> i think they are doing quite well. we all came together, worked very well together. we feel that we gave the patients excellent medical care in a very timely fashion.
4:34 am
so we feel good about our response and the ability to help people. that is what we are here for, to help people. >> there is often talk and i saw this in boston play out after the terror attack there. it is almost ptsd for people who survived this. are you hearing about that from colleagues saying they are having a hard time? >> no. nothing like that just yet. of course, some of the physicians in the building at the time might have a difficult time later. all of us that were working the scene and working in the hospitals we just feel good about what we are able to do. that is what we train for. that is why we are here. >> absolutely. i want to also bring in clinical psychologist from new york to talk more about the emotional impact. thanks for being here. >> it is a pleasure. >> talk first about how people of different ages, children and adults deal with the
4:35 am
psychological trauma of a tragedy on as big a scale as this. >> first and foremost the fact that physicians and other responders are able to stabilize them medicily i think plays a lot as to whether they are going to have severe cases of ptsd. we will see ptsd coming occupant of this situation within a couple of weeks as people get out of the trauma phase, before they get -- after they get out of the shock phase that they are in. as the days go by you will see the nightmares. you will see the anxiety. you'll see a lot of the depression that comes with facing the reality of what they have gone through. something where if others have lost their lives the ones who survive also have to deal with that, too. reintegrating into a more normal phase of life. this will take a long time and a lot of therapy for them to get
4:36 am
through. >> what can people do? we hear children are so resilient. if you think of all of the children in the elementary school or anywhere there, as adults what is the best way to help them if you are acquaintances or family members. how do you help children cope with a tragedy like this? >> we talked about stabilizing them medicily. now we have to stabilize them psychologically. that means letting them know that they are not going to face another trauma or tragedy like this and bring them to a baseline where they have normal lives once again. the most important thing we can do is listen to them. let them know that whatever they want to talk about, whatever nightmares they are having we are available to speak with them about it and give them outlets to be able to talk about it or draw it or color. they have to get a lot of that
4:37 am
experience that happened to them, we have to have them manifest that at their own speed. >> we have also been seeing survivors guilt play out already. some of the people that made it through that didn't lose their home or their loved ones, feeling guilty that it happened to someone else. doctor, talk to us about what you guys need right now. what can people do to help? what is it that you need most? >> well, obviously contact local charities and agencies if you have a connection with one of those certainly contact one of those. i'm not sure of anything specific that can be done nationally to be sent here but certainly money is always needed to rebuild and people just need the support. as a matterer of fact when we were working that day there were emergency departments and nurses from all over the country that sent us food and faxed us greetings. we knew people were watching us
4:38 am
and cared about the little town of moore, oklahoma and that was really nice. >> absolutely. as the months go ahead we will not forget. you are all in our hearts. thank you for the work hat you are doing there. jeff, also appreciate you coming in this morning. >> pleasure. thank you. 24 people were lost in monday's storm. some of them children. let's take a moment now to remember the victims. >> we will miss him tremendously but i will see him again when it is my turn to make that journey.
