She has provided psychological first aid after some major disasters around the world. And she has been to China several times during the past 12 years. Welcome, Dr. Judy.

Q1: As an expert in trauma, you went to many disaster-hit places, and talked to a large number of victims around the world. In the Sichuan case, what techniques do you think are needed when providing psychological help to the survivors?

Q2: The devastating earthquake may still leave scars in many hearts. How long do you think they will need to recover? And what can we do to help?
