Summary Few phenomena are as widely experienced across different individuals, cultures, and contexts as that of traumatic stress. Whether as victims, perpetrators, supporters, or simply observers, most people can identify to some extent with the psychological and physical consequences produced by traumatic events. In this book, contemporary research and theory in the field of traumatic stress is brought together to expand the understanding of this phenomenon for clinicians, scholars, and students. Using an array of methodological perspectives, numerous topics and traumatic contexts are cosnidered, including: the recovery of adult rape survivors, soldiers of war, victims of child sexual abuse, and the coping that follows the loss of a loved one. In addition to highlighting the various contexts in which trauma occurs and the unique challenges each presents to its victims, this book also examines the short- and long-term responses victims present after surviving traumatic events. Furthermore, the roles of culture, social support, and more formal organizations in the ongoing process of overcoming trauma are explored as the editors and contributors detail the nature of traumatic experiences, the needs of its survivors, and the challenges faced by those who wish to support and help those survivors.
