Despite the growing interest in the role of psychological trauma inthe genesis of psychiatric disorders, few volumes have addressedthese issues from a multidisciplinary and internationalperspective. Given the complexity of reslience and posttraumaticdisorder, and given ongoing trauma and violence in many parts ofthe world, it is crucial to apply such perspectives to reviewexisting knowledge in the field and provide directions for futureresearch.
This book has a broad scope. A key focus is PTSD, because of itsclinical and health importance, its obvious link with trauma, andits interest for many clinicians and researchers. However, the bookalso examines resilience and a range of mental health consequencesof trauma, because it has become increasingly clear that not allindividuals react to trauma in the same way. It is important formental health professionals to be aware of the broad range ofpotential responses to trauma, as well as of relevantevidence-based treatments.

The book includes chapters that address a wide range of topicson trauma-related disorders, including nosology and classification,epidemiology, neurobiology, pharmacotherapy, and psychotherapy.Each chapter comprises a critical review of the existingliterature, aimed at being useful for the practitioner. This isfollowed by selected commentaries from other authorities on thetopic, representing diverse geographical locations and points ofview, who refine some of the perspectives offered in the review,provide alternative views, or suggest important areas of futurework.
