The goal of the comprehensive trauma center (CTC) is to help survivors and/or victims re-empower themselves, restore wholeness and meaning, and integrate the trauma(s) they have experienced into their lives so that they are no longer at the mercy of those external events. The CTCs described in this book vary in type and form but seek to provide a variety of services to victims and/or survivors by complementing and coordinating services with existing programs.

Editorial Reviews

Comprehensive trauma centers (CTCs) provide a variety of services to survivors of trauma. Some CTCs conduct preventive interventions, research studies, and educational activities as well. This text describes 66 centers that exist throughout the world and how they work. Some of the centers profiled include private and government funded centers, hospital-based centers, and centers for Holocaust survivors, refugees, and children.
