Teachers' psychological reactions 7 weeks after the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
This study assessed teachers' reactions to the Oklahoma City bombing. Peritraumatic reactions, the interaction of media exposure with stress from media coverage, feelings toward the perpetrators, and worry about safety predicted posttraumatic stress. Twenty percent reported difficulty handling demands; 5% sought counseling. Outreach efforts should assess and assist teachers.
