About this book

This book provides an overview of theoretical, empirical, and clinical conceptualizations of mental health following exposure to human rights violations (HRV). There are currently hundreds of millions of individuals affected by war and conflict across the globe, and over 68 million people who are forcibly displaced. The field of refugee and post-conflict mental health is growing exponentially, as researchers investigate the factors that impact on psychological disorders in these populations, and design and evaluate new treatments to reduce psychological distress. This volume will be a substantial contribution to the literature on mental health in refugee and post-conflict populations, as it details the state of the evidence regarding the mental health of war survivors living in areas of former conflict as well as refugees and asylum-seekers.

Reviews

“The volume provides a comprehensive contemporary resource for scholars and practitioners working with post-conflict populations. … the strengths of the book are the inclusion of approaches examining the underlying psychological processes of trauma and the considerations of supporting refugees beyond mere individual treatment of specific diagnoses. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and professionals.” (I. I. Katzarska-Miller, Choice, Vol. 56 (11), July, 2019)
