2 Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology: We cannot imagine the pain, sorrow, and fears that all of you in Boston have been living with after the tragedy at the marathon. Please know that we stand with you in your pain and that you are not alone in your healing process. Our hearts go out to you all, especially Patrick and Jessica Downes. Faculty at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology Dear MSPP Colleagues, As a long time member of NCSPP I feel a strong sense of kinship with fellow member Schools and their academic communities. Those of us whose institutions have been active in NCSPP have faced our fair share of trials and tribulations in many challenging forms throughout our common history. However, the recent trauma that the city of Boston experienced, with devastating consequences for MSPP and your academic community, was especially heart wrenching. My warmest thoughts and best wishes go out to your faculty and students as you gather yourselves in healing your wounds and resiliently looking toward the future. You have my humble support! Warmest regards, Kjell Rudestam Fielding Graduate University

3 To the Students, Faculty, Administration, Staff and Families of MSPP: We were saddened to hear of the tragic incident in Boston on Monday and particularly of its impact upon your school and community. Our thoughts and prayers are with you from across the miles as you strive to move forward from this tragedy. Although we are separate schools, we are members of a common community. It is our hope that the suffering this tragedy has caused will become a catalyst for healing within ourselves and our clients. In Kindness, The faculty, staff and students School of Professional Psychology Pacific University, Hillsboro, Oregon The faculty, staff, and students of the Xavier University Psy.D. program want to express our concern for the faculty, students, and staff of the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology in light of the frightening explosion and manhunt. Most of all, we want to express our sadness that one of the MSPP students and his wife were both seriously injured by the blasts. One of our graduates who practices in Boston has been posting information and pictures that are heart breaking. We hope that as you help your clients and the community deal with these horrific events you take time to care for yourselves as well. Know that your colleagues are thinking of you in this challenging time.

4 Dear President Covino, faculty, staff, and students of MSPP: We at JFKU in California are thinking of you all. We recognize that you are in grief as a result of the senseless acts of violence committed earlier this week, which were inflicted upon innocents including some in your own community. No words can fully convey our feelings of shock and outrage. Nor can they provide much salve to heal your hurt. However, years ago I read a book by Henri Nouwen entitled The Wounded Healer. As the title suggests, the point the author made is that terrible tragedy and hurt can be transformed into deeper empathy and care for those who are hurting. We would all prefer that such lessons not be taught. But our hope is that for as long as such lessons are taught that they be transformative. May it be so. We are sending our love and peace following the tragedy in Boston. United in our hope for a better tomorrow. Sincerely, Louise Baca and all of the faculty at the Arizona School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University/Phoenix Sending love and prayers from the PsyD Program at La Salle University.

5 Dear members of the MSPP Community, On behalf of the students, faculty, staff and Board of Trustees of the Wright Institute, we write to send our community s sympathy, support, and encouragement to all of you in this time of grief. We have heard of the terrible tragedy that befell one of your colleagues, and we can imagine the impact on all of you of the horror that occurred on Boylston Street. In the midst of pain and loss, we trust that the principles, goals, and values of MSPP and the innate strengths you have as committed current and future providers of support to others, will see you through this difficult period. With sincere best wishes, The Wright Institute Community Dear Dr. Covino, MSPP Community, and Patrick and Jessica Downes: You, your faculty, staff, the students, and especially Patrick and Jessica Downes are in our thoughts and prayers as you begin the healing process in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. We hope that our will joins with yours in meeting this challenge with indomitable determination to prevail. Sincerely, Karen E. Farrell, Psy.D., ABPP Professor and Director of Training Midwestern University Richard C. Ney, Ph.D., ABPP Professor and Associate Program Director Midwestern University

6 Dear President Covino and MSPP Community, On behalf of the Department of Graduate Psychology at Immaculata University, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. What happened on Monday touched us all in a most personal way, but especially those who were so close to the scene and had personal relationships with anyone affected directly by the event. We know that your spirit, resilience, and community will carry you through this most painful period with all of its complicated feelings, and that in time, those whom you serve professionally and whose lives are affected by trauma will be beneficiaries of your special understanding and compassion born from this tragic event. Jed Yalof, PsyD ABPP, Clinical Psychology ABSNP, School Neuropsychology Professor & Chair, Department of Graduate Psychology Coordinator, PsyD Program in Clinical Psychology We are not defined or diminished by injuries and violence. What really matters in life is the way we care about each other and care for one another. We care about you. Philinda Hutchings, Ph.D. Midwestern University

7 Dear friends, colleagues and students at MSPP, Life, freedom and human development were all deeply threatened by the terrible tragedy that has struck your campus so directly and disastrously. Knowing some of your professors and staff members, I am fully confident that you will move forward with courage and resilience taking from this some wisdom you may share with the rest of us.your colleagues in professional psychology. These are the events that shape us, our generations and our understanding of the human mind. You will always remember where you were the day this tragedy hit so close to your academic home. It is my hope your memories will be sharpened by the indelible image of people running toward the disaster area in order to help and to take this as your model of humanness the one you try to use when helping others to heal. My thoughts are with you as you move forward. Best regards, Sue A. Kuba, PsyD Program Director Alliant-Fresno

8 Dear students, staff, faculty and especially Patrick and Jessica, On behalf of the Forest Institute community I want to share our thoughts, prayers and support for you from here in the heartland. The tragedy of this week has touched our nation but not nearly so much as it has the MSPP community. Know that you do not stand alone but that there is a connection between us through our collective efforts to understand and change a world that at times is terribly dangerous and fraught with confusion and uncertainty. Patrick and Jessica, you are our students, our peers, our colleagues and friends in spirit and our son and daughter; our loved ones. In spite of present experience and because of your present experience, as individuals and a couple, we know that you will grow stronger each day and will as a result of this event, have a capacity to impact your world in ways that none of us will. We wish you Godspeed on your journey. Sincerely, Dr. Mark Skrade Mark Skrade, Psy.D. President The School of Professional Psychology at Forest Institute 2885 West Battlefield Road Springfield, MO 65807

9 We write to express our sorrow at this event and its consequences. Our hearts are heavy and we have you in our thoughts. We hope that those of you who work tirelessly as healers may find some healing amidst the pain. With heartfelt sympathy, The students, staff, and faculty at the Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology Widener University On behalf of everyone at the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University San Francisco Bay Area, we would like to extend our deepest concern and sympathy to Patrick, Jessica and the rest of the MSPP community for what you have endured over recent days related to the Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath. We were deeply saddened by this news and hope for peace and justice in the face of this awful tragedy. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, and that we offer you our full support. Our hearts go out to all of you. Sincerely, Robert Perl, PsyD Program Chair, Clinical Psychology American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, San Francisco Bay Area

10 Dear President Covino, On behalf of The Chicago School community, I am reaching out to you and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology community with words of great concern and deep support for Patrick and Jessica. Like many others, word of the Boston bombings left me in shock, with thoughts and feelings quickly turning to all those who came in harm s way. When news reached me of Patrick and Jessica, it was no different than if they were part of the TCSPP family, itself. The professional psychology community is a small one and, as such, these two young people are our own. I extend to you, to MSPP, and to Patrick and Jessica an offer to assist in any way possible. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. Michele Nealon-Woods, Psy.D. President For Patrick and Jessica, and the MSPP Community, I am so sorry to hear what happened with Patrick and Jessica at the Boston Marathon. Please know that you are all in my heart. With hope that the concern and encouragement from NCSPP will help with healing, Jenny Cornish University of Denver GSPP

11 Dear MSPP Students, Faculty and Staff: I was deeply saddened by the events of the recent bombings in your city. I wanted to send you my support in any way I could and I am glad I was offered this channel. An event like this is like a stone thrown in the water that creates ripples as it moves away from the center. These ripples moved quickly all over the world in this case. MSPP and all of its people have been injured profoundly and I want you to know that we are with you in your grief and mourning. My family and I are thinking of you and will keep you in our prayers as you go forward. In love and support, Franklin Sollars, PhD Professor - Michigan School of Professional Psychology

12 I want to express my regret and sorrow over the events of this past week in Boston. My heart goes out to all those who were devastated by the horror that occurred. I want to extend my wishes for a recovery from that trauma to the students of MSPP and all of the countless others impacted as well. Sincerely, Louis Katz, PhD Adjunct Faculty Michigan School of Professional Psychology To Patrick, Jessica, President Covino, faculty, staff, administration, students, families and friends of the MSPP community, The faculty, staff, administration, and students of the Chestnut Hill College Psy.D. program in Philadelphia, PA want you to know that you are in our thoughts and in our prayers. We wish Patrick and Jessica healing and recovery, and we wish the entire MSPP community peace as you come to terms with this tragic event. May you be Boston Strong and may that strength combine with compassion, support, and optimism for the brighter future that our students will help to create. Sincerely yours, Chestnut Hill College Psy.D. program

13 Dear Patrick, Jessica and the MSPP Community, I was deeply saddened to hear of the tragic bombings at the Boston Marathon and personally sad for my fellow NCSPP community members who were so directly affected by the loss. Please know that I am joining the many groups and individuals who are sending you thoughts and prayers for healing, recovery, and growth. In such times of tragedy, I like to remember the words of Winston Churchill: We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself the means of inspiration and survival. I wish you comfort, strength, unity and peace as Boston recovers and you move forward. We are with you on this journey. With Best wishes, Leah Horvath Illinois School of Professional Psychology

14 All of you at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and the greater Boston area have been in our thoughts and in our hearts. We send you all the best as you work through the shock, pain, loss, and grief of this past week. Please know that you will continue to be in our thoughts. The California School of Professional Psychology - Los Angeles Campus My heart is with your two students who have suffered from this senseless tragedy and to the MSPP community impacted by this painful crisis as well. In the words of the Dalai Lama: "Tragedy should be used as a source of strength. No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, that is our real disaster. May hope be part of what heals your hearts and carries you through and beyond this most difficult time. Melodie Schaefer CAPIC and CSPP member

15 To Patrick, Jessica, & the entire Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology community, It is with great sadness that we learned of the painful losses and hardship that have come to your lives and your academic community as a result of the bombings at the Boston Marathon. We know the power of supportive relationships during a time of recovery from trauma, and we hope that the compassion, support, and love that members of your community can feel from others and extend to one other will bring strength and resilience during the coming weeks and months. The faculty and students of our program extend our support to you during this time. It is our hope that you can find healing in community. I believe that the community in the fullest sense: a place and all its creatures is the smallest unit of health and that to speak of the health of an isolated individual is a contradiction in terms. Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays One of the marvelous things about community is that it enables us to welcome and help people in a way we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strength and share the work and responsibility, we can welcome many people, even those in deep distress, and perhaps help them find self-confidence and inner healing. Jean Vanier, Community and Growth With deep respect, The Wheaton College Clinical Psychology Psy.D. Program Wheaton, Illinois

16 Dear Patrick, Jessica, and MSPP, We are so sorry to hear of the events at the Boston Marathon. We can t even imagine the sadness, confusion, and anger you must be feeling. But you will overcome this. This situation was unjust and horrific. But in the end, we believe your experiences will make you stronger, more empathic clinicians who will be able to change lives and empathize with others in your community affected by this. Hold on to that. Please feel free to reach out to us should you need anything we are here for you. Sincerely, Xavier University Psychology Graduate Students Dear MSPP faculty, students, and staff, My thoughts and prayers are with you as you emerge from this terrible tragedy. Bostonians have an incredible spirit and resiliency, and you will draw from that as you move forward as a school and city. I am certain you have felt tremendous care and concern under Dr. Covino s leadership. My best wishes to all of you as you heal physically and emotionally. Lavita Nadkarni, Ph.D. Associate Dean University of Denver-GSPP

17 Dear Patrick and Jessica, We heard about your involvement in the tragedy at the marathon, and are so sorry for all that you have had to face. Please know that our thoughts are with you, and that your community is behind you. We hope that you find comfort and healing during this difficult time. Sending warm regards, Shelly Smith-Acuna, Ph.D. Dean Faculty, Staff, and Students of University of Denver GSPP Dear Dr. Covino, On behalf of myself, the clinical faculty, staff and students of the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Washington D.C., I want to let you know our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I know this is a difficult time for the entire MSPP community but in particular for your student Patrick and his wife Jessica. Please know we join all of the NCSPP schools in expressing our heartfelt concern for you all at this time. Robert F. Barrett, Ph.D. Chair, Clinical Psychology Programs ASPP, Washington D.C.

18 Dear President Covino and the MSPP community, All of us in the PsyD program at the Adler School are deeply impacted by the tragic events in Boston. It is difficult to fathom the impact of such a violent act on your life and sense of safety. You are in our hearts and thoughts. We especially send best wishes of recovery and healing to Patrick and Jessica Downes who sacrificed so much in this thoughtless act of violence. In our profession we always take care of others, this is the time to take care of ourselves and we want you to know that the faculty, students, and staff at Adler are here for you. Boston has always been a symbol of pride and courage and we believe that all of you will become stronger from this life altering event. Warmest regards, David Katz, Ph.D., ABPP Chair, Department of Clinical Psychology Adler School of Professional Psychology

19 To all those affiliated with the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology The pain and sense of anger at this senseless act of violence resonates with a painful timbre across America, affecting and saddening all. Those of us in Colorado, at the University of the Rockies, School of Professional Psychology, send condolences to the many who struggle today and will continue to be affected by the viciousness of this hateful attack. It is hard to comprehend how anyone can hold such contrary beliefs that result in a revolt against the concept of a sense of value to life, respect for the rights of others, a belief in the importance of healthy self-care and the pure pleasure and conviviality of sport for sport s sake. Please be assured that our sincere good will and desire to reach across the many miles between us, represents our heartfelt willingness to support you in Boston, in whatever way possible. Your tragedy has touched us deeply and we extend to you our open hearts in your time of grief. Marian Edelbrock, PhD Director of Behavioral Health On behalf of the School of Professional Psychology University of the Rockies Colorado Springs, CO The faculty of the Graduate School of Professional Psychology at the University of St. Thomas are saddened by recent events in Boston and the very personal impact it has had on your academic community. We hold you all in our thoughts and prayers as you heal.

20 Dear Nick, Faculty, Staff, Students, and Administrators: As your neighbors to the west, we at Antioch were shocked and saddened to learn about the severe injuries suffered by one of your students and his wife at the Boston Marathon. There is nothing I can write to make the pain and suffering your community is experiencing go away, but I do want to say that you have the concern and support of our entire program and university. My heart goes out to all of you, and especially to Patrick and Jessica. I wish them both a successful recovery, and wish you all a return to a sense of peace. Warmly, Kathi Borden Chair of Clinical Psychology Department at Antioch University New England Dear Patrick, Jessica, and the MSPP Community, On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of Antioch University Santa Barbara, I am sending you prayers and loving kindness. You have been through much and we are holding you in our hearts. Sincerely, Juliet Rohde-Brown

21 To MSPP, on behalf of all faculty and students at the PsyD Program at Florida Institute of Technology: Violence is always difficult to understand, and when directed at you it is also incredibly painful to experience. All of you in Boston must still be in shock at the municipal bomb attack made at the Marathon end site, and at MSPP especially so since the attack hit home. From Florida Institute of Technology we send you our love and prayers as you work to comfort each other and Patrick and his wife. To Patrick and his wife we send hope for the future: This too shall pass. MSPP - I am holding a healing space for your community. Your strong and empathetic nature will undoubtedly help through this time. Laura Sanders, PsyD Adjunct Faculty Michigan School of Professional Psychology We stand with you in your grief, loss, and healing. We are here, and we are with you. Diana M. Concannon, PsyD, PCI Associate Dean, California School of Forensic Studies Systemwide Director of Training, California School of Professional Psychology & California School of Forensic Studies Alliant International University

22 Prayers of healing for Patrick and Jessica and for all of the MSPP community. May some small portion of the work we do help eliminate violence in the world. LaPearl Logan Winfrey, PhD Associate Dean School of Professional Psychology Wright State University Dayton, OH Former President, NCSPP I cannot do all the good that the world needs, but the world needs all the good that I can do. Jana Stanfield Dear Jessica and Patrick, Sending encouragement for your rapid recovery. May you receive the love of family, friends and community at this time of healing. Warmly, Ron Pilato, Psy.D. Director of Clinical Training Sofia University

23 Dear Patrick, This is just a letter from one of your brothers at the Michigan School of Professional Psychology. I was so saddened to hear of the trauma you and your new bride Jessica went through at the Marathon bombings. There is not much I can say that will be of help, but I wanted you and Jessica to know that my family and I are thinking of you both and keeping you in our prayers. All of our Michigan Community is with you in sprit and are behind you as you grieve the terrible tragedy and loss. I will be pulling for you both the rest of my days and want you two to know it. God Bless, Franklin Sollars, PhD Professor - Michigan School of Professional Psychology

24 Dear MSPP Community, Like millions of other Americans, I was alarmed and horrified by the explosions at the Boston Marathon and the damage they inflicted on so many. I mourn the passing of the three young spectators who only wanted to cheer on their family and friends and grieve the injuries and losses sustained by so many others. I was very saddened to hear that MSPP student Patrick and his wife Jessica were among those injured by the explosion. Please let them know that I pray for their healing and rehabilitation. I know they will receive great support and strength from the MSPP community, and that will do much to sustain them through this extremely difficult time. MSPP community, you probably will be called on to help many in Boston recover from this trauma. Although the threat of further violence has been reduced with the identification and capture of the perpetrators, the psychological trauma remains. I wish you well as you use your skills as psychologists to help Bostonians regain their sense of security and safety. This service will be invaluable to your community. And please know that as the MSPP comes together to recover from this tragedy, that I and many other colleagues send our support and prayers. Mary Beth Kenkel, PhD Dean, College of Psychology and Liberal Arts Florida Institute of Technology

25 Dear President Covino and members of the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology Community, On behalf of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology I write to convey our sympathy and support in the aftermath of the bombings that occurred in Boston last Monday. The Boston Marathon is an event that has long represented the beginning of spring a time to celebrate our hope and optimism for the future. During the past several years the Marathon has increasingly become a symbol of how these feelings are shared by people from cultures throughout the world an annual portrayal of how someday, as in the words of John Lennon, we might realize the imagined dream that the world will live as one. Sadly, our hearts are repeatedly broken by the realization of how that dream remains elusive. This year on Marathon Day, as reverberations of that realization rippled throughout the world, the impact was painfully felt by all of you as you learned that one of your students who was preparing to leave for internship, and his newly-wed wife were among the seriously injured. As news coverage of the aftermath of the events has united us all, we are inspired by the indomitable spirit of the people of the Greater Boston community a spirit that we know lives in all of you and in all of us who embrace the profession of psychology. We must all continue to imagine and as we do, know that we are not alone. You are all in our hearts and in our thoughts. Sincerely, Thomas F. Barrett, Ph.D. Department Chair Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program Chicago Campus
