Abstract : The purpose of this paper was to consider whether psychologists are in a position to improve our understanding of and ability to deal with terrorism and its effects. The psychological aspects of terrorism are divided into six categories. The six categories of psychological terrorism are (1) psychological analyses of the terrorist; (2) the nature, timing, and effects of terrorist acts; (3) the behavior during acts of terrorism of terrorists, victims, and negotiators; (4) the prediction and prevention of acts of terrorism; (5) the effects of such acts on victims; and (6) psychological assistance for victims.
