Stress, Trauma, and Posttraumatic Growth : Social Context, Environment, and Identities
What happens in the trauma’s aftermath? How do its effects manifest differently on the individual, family, and community-wide levels? Stress, Trauma, and Posttraumatic Growth: Social Context, Environment, and Identities explores the way traumatic events are defined, classified, and understood throughout the lifecycle, placing special emphasis on the complex intersections of diverse affiliations and characteristics such as age, class, color, culture, disability, race and ethnicity, gender identity and expression, immigration status, political ideology, religion, sex, and sexual orientation. The book gives its readers not only a solid basis for understanding and understanding traumatic events and treating their effects, but also shows the varied ways that trauma is conceptualized across cultures. Both new and seasoned clinicians will come away from Stress, Trauma, and Posttraumatic Growth with a deep understanding of the principles that guide successful trauma treatment.
