Psychosocial Impact of the 'War on Terror' on Muslims Settling in Australia

Dr Nooria Mehraby

The trauma, shock and suffering experienced through the recent acts of terrorism, such as September 11th and the subsequent ‘War on Terror’, has had an enomorous psychosocial impact on Muslims resettling in Australia. Many have experienced re-traumatisation accompanied by severe posttraumatic symptoms, grief and loss reactions, anger, resentment, survivor guilt, anxiety and depression. However, the situation has become further complicated through the association of terrorism with Islam and being Muslim  It has become common to hear reports of stigmatization, fear, rejection, harassment and discrimination experienced by  Muslims.
