In recent years, the concept of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has captured the attention and concern of clinicians and scientists, and reactions to traumatic stress have been extensively studied. But are such reactions universal? Although the PTSD diagnosis is now used internationally, it is by no means clear whether the diagnosis is meaningful across cultures and ethnic groups. Most of the research and clinical experience validating the diagnosis has been carried out in Western industrialized nations, and some clinicians have raised the question of ethnocentric bias in its formulation. This richly documented, edited volume is the first systematic examination of ethnocultural aspects of PTSD. Leaders in the field of PTSD research and practice explore both universal and culture-specific reactions to trauma, and discuss implications for research, treatment, and prevention. The multidisciplinary perspective of the book will appeal to a broad audience of psychologists, psychiatrists, anthropologists, epidemiologists, sociologists, and social workers.

Editorial Reviews

Scientific discussions of current theory, research, and practice, that unavoidably stray at times into historical considerations and political opinion. They cover the foundations of posttraumatic stress disorder, conceptual and methodological issues in research on the ethnocultural aspects, specific groups and victim populations, and ethnocultural considerations in therapy and mental health services. The 21 papers were presented to an international conference in Honolulu in June and July 1993. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
