About this book

In 1997 the National Institute of Mental Health assembled a working group of international experts to address the mental health consequences of torture and related violence and trauma; report on the status of scientific knowledge; and include research recommendations with implications for treatment, services, and policy development. This book, dedicated to those who experience the horrors of torture and those who work to end it, is based on that report.

Reviews

"The monograph is a rich resource for clinicians and researchers working with torture and trauma survivors. More skilled clinicians are needed in Australia to enhance our response to these marginalized and abused groups of people. This book is an important weapon in mobilizing and underpinning such a response."
(Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry, 36:2 (2002)
"This book is a must for anyone who is involved with the treatment of violence and its consequences. Clinicians, researchers, policy makers both home and abroad, those in the legal profession, and the victims themselves, if they feel so inclined, will find this book well worth reading."
(Psychiatric Services, 54:7)
