IWU Chapel Hour to Recognize 9/11 Anniversary

September 8, 2006

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Illinois Wesleyan's University Chapel Hour and Special Events and Services will hold a service in recognition of the 5th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States. The service, which will honor the approximately 3,000 people who died from the four coordinated assaults via hijacked commercial jet airplanes, will be held Wednesday, Sept. 13, at 11 a.m. in Evelyn Chapel (1301 N. Park St., Bloomington, Ill.)

The chapel hour will be given by Edward Tick, Ph.D., director and senior psychotherapist of Sanctuary: A Center for Mentoring the Soul in Albany, N.Y.

The event is free and open to the public.

Tick is the author of "War and the Soul: Healing Our Nation's Veterans," published by Quest Books.  Using a combination of Native American, Vietnamese Buddhist, and Greek traditions, Tick conducts healing sessions and has treated severely traumatized veterans since 1979, when he began treating soldiers from Vietnam.  He and the center he works with now treat veterans returning from the war in Iraq who have post-traumatic stress disorder. Tick earned his Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and is a clinical member of the American Academy of Psychotherapists.
