The original Helping America Cope book

English Edition

Spanish Edition

In the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, many families had difficulty coping with their reactions to the terrorist attacks and ensuing events. As a public service to help those affected, Annette La Greca, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Pediatrics of the University of Miami, Elaine Sevin, President of 7-Dippity, and Scott Sevin, Vice President of 7-Dippity created Helping America Cope: A Guide to help Parents and Children Cope with the September 11th Terrorist Attacks.

The Project currently has a limited number of copies of both the Anniversary and original editions of Helping America Cope available. Although the books are free, we ask that those wishing to obtain copies to please pay the shipping cost, as we are out of funds. If you are interested in obtaining a copy while supplies last, please call us at (866) 734-7748.
