If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr David Chapman.

Professor Simon Wessely will take a look at how populations, in this case the population of London, have responded to the threat and reality of terror from the Second World War to the present day. He will also address the various ways in which professionals have tried to reduce or manage psychological responses to adversity, sometimes with unintended results. Overall, he will argue that ordinary people were and still are rather more resilient than we sometimes assume.
