Israeli society has had a longstanding need to cope with the terror attacks that have brought us many physically and mentally wounded victims and wide exposure to traumatic, stressful events. Terror has delivered the dread of war to our doorsteps, and combat reactions no longer belong to soldiers on the battlefield alone. The concrete possibility of so many simultaneously injured people, the uncertainty, and contagious anxiety affect the masses, enhance the traumatic potential, and place complex challenges on health systems (Bleich et al., 2003). The immediate and early phases of the post-traumatic period are the most intriguing. A large variety of elements influence mental responses, coping mechanisms and future mental processes. The traumatic cause, the internal and external resources, the surroundings and treatment accessibility are among these elements.
