Professor Anthony Mancini was mentioned in a Globe and Mail article regarding the resilience of the human psyche after trauma and loss. From the article:

While anecdotes are perfect ways to transmit the human dimension of catastrophes, they’re hardly scientifically sound ways to measure their impact. An exhaustive review of the research literature by Professor Bonanno and two colleagues (Maren Westphal of Columbia, and Anthony Mancini of Pace University), published last November, shows that although individuals vary in their reactions to natural disasters, resilience is the human norm.
