a sense of guilt. It was the feeling that “this person would not have been in Binghamton if I had not invited him or her to come, so it is my fault that they were harmed.” For many weeks, there continued to be outreach to members of the university community. My own emotions at the time ran the gamut from horror to sadness and from numbness to anger while knowing that I needed to maintain a professional demeanor despite what I was feeling at the time. Fortunately,

Help for the Helpers
For anyone involved in a tragedy like this, there is an attendant tiredness and fatigue. We all had to remember to get help and accept help. Most international educators are not licensed counselors or medical professionals, but we need to understand

the psychological and physical dynamics of helper overload. The “land of denial” is a place that many of us visit during stressful situations because that’s part of our way of surviving them. However, we have to recognize when we are overwhelmed, and colleagues can help us do that. There is a level of crisis that has such complexity and horror, and doesn’t resolve for such a long period of time that it exhausts the primary responders. As responders to this tragedy we needed to be mindful of our own need to be given the time to recover. A licensed professional should assess each member of the crisis team to see if additional professional assistance may be recommended. A number of the university caregivers in this tragedy voluntarily participated in individual assessments with a therapist provided to us by the State of New York, and several caregivers continued with private therapy for a period of time following the tragedy.

the Aftermath
After a tragedy of the magnitude that we experienced at Binghamton, it was important to remember that one horrific event does not immunize you or your institution from a future horrific event. If an other event occurs, someone else may need to step in to take your place on the university crisis team if you haven’t had time to recover from the first crisis. As a very wise colleague reminded me, “If I have a broken leg I shouldn’t be expected to climb a mountain.” Those who have been successful at dealing with challenging and complex situations in the past risk having it built into others’ expectations that they will always be able to respond with the same level of endurance and skill that they’ve shown in the face of the most recent crisis. So in managing institutions and developing a crisis team, care needs to be taken to continuously train and recruit new members. ie
