Sources and Expressions of Resiliency in Trauma Survivors provides a framework for understanding how-and why-resiliency is essential to the challenges of post-traumatic recovery. This unique book examines how this framework applies to trauma survivors, treated and untreated, from culturally , politically, and economically diverse backgrounds, using qualitative and quantitative research findings, clinical case reviews, and narrative studies to determine the implications on clinical practice, community intervention, and social change in the wake of violence.
