Book Description

"International Responses to Traumatic Stress" asks pertinent questions as the United Nations observes its 50th Anniversary. It focuses on the effects of traumatic stress which accompany personal and collective disasters. In an overcrowded world, recent catastrophes, natural as well as man-made, have left a wake of tormented people, ranging from political prisoners to humiliated UN peace-keepers.
