Project Number
NYU School of Medicine
Fiscal Year Awarded
Project Duration
1 year


Individuals directly exposed to 9/11 World Trade Center (WTC) disaster, including community members who lived or worked in the area, continue to experience significant psychiatric and physical health symptoms. At the WTC Environmental Health Center, at least one-third of patients serviced are Hispanic with Spanish as their primary language. Unfortunately, there are limited empirically supported treatment protocols that are translated and available in Spanish for this population. This study will adapt and translate the Relaxation Response Resiliency Program (3RP), a comprehensive mind-body treatment, for Spanish-speaking WTC survivors. We will evaluate whether the treatment is acceptable and feasible for this population.
