There is controversy as to whether psychological interventions in the aftermath of disaster are helpful or not. This book addresses these controversies and describes the responses that psychologists have made in different parts of the world to disaster.
Psychological Interventions in Times of Crisis is an original contribution to the relatively new field of collective trauma. With the rigor of experienced academicians and clinicians Barbanel and Sternberg have managed to gather an outstanding group of international psychologists who attempt to conceptualize the responses that psychologists have made in the aftermath of disasters ranging from Chernobyl and West Africa to 9/11 America
The chapters address theoretical as well as technical issues, offering a clear and substantial repertoire for psychologists invested in working outside of their offices.
