Excellent, sensitive approach to dealing with how communities are affected following a trauma. The authors present their theories on handling grief in a manner that allows the reader to extract elements that can be put to use immediately when dealing with tramatized victims and rescue/support workers. Additionally, several case studies are presented demonstrating strengths and weaknesses in communities that contribute to the length and quality of healing from natural and man-made disasters. I found the study of the circles of survivorship clearly demonstrated in the case study of the Challenger disaster. The role of strong leadership, identifying groups who have the right to grieve and ways to memorialize victims was deeply impactful. Excellent book for professionals and anyone interested in preparing thier communities for handling trauma.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
