Dr. Laurie Nadel, PhD
Dr. Laurie Nadel, Ph.D. spent the first two decades of her career working in newsrooms and as a field reporter where she came to recognize that people whose lives were shattered by disaster would need long-term support. After earning two doctorates through independent study, in 1991 she opened her practice in Manhattan. Dr. Laurie ran a program for teenagers whose fathers were killed in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks; a long-term program for Hurricane Sandy survivors; and workshops for teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. Her latest book is The Five Gifts: Discovering Hope, Healing and Strength When Disaster Strikes (Foreword by Dan Rather). She is the author of seven books including the four-time best-seller Sixth Sense: Unlocking Your Ultimate Mind Power. On the front lines of disaster mental health, she provides psychological first aid trainings to first responders and nurses who are dealing with burnout and PTSD issues.
