Overview

With growing trauma from economic and natural disasters, the massive influx of returning veterans and victims of the various ongoing wars and other conflicts, interest in the psychology of trauma expanded exponentially, moving from important to essential. Graduate and post-graduate programs for mental health practitioners now need strong curricular opportunities for training in the psychology of trauma. Current innovations in this field draw from lifespan development, community, social, existential, and clinical psychology, as will this book. The recent applications of Chaos Theory to clinical psychology, and now trauma psychology, initiated by the work of Michael Butz (1997, 2004) has been added to this mix and will be part of many chapters. Many of the vignette contributors teach this class and supervise graduate students in practicum and internship settings at universities in the United States and in an Australian university in Singapore. This is current international text replete with vignettes, applications, and case histories. Trauma Psychology as a rapidly growing field can benefit from a new text that has viability for both professionals in mental health and those training to be professionals in mental health. The primary area of impact for this book is addressing the prevention and treatment of trauma, both at individual and community levels and across the lifespan.
