Summary
"Although by no means definitive, the information that clinical practitioners, community psychologists, applied social psychologists, health psychologists, and others will find in these chapters will provide a broad view of current understandings of how catastrophic events affect individuals and groups and of how human beings adapt and can be helped to adapt to the resulting stresses. The chapters in this volume provide insight into the effects of disasters resulting from technological accidents as well as natural disasters, crime and terrorism, violence against women, suicide, and irrevocable losses resulting from death, illness, and other life events. The chapters in this volume illustrate why an interaction between theory and practice, between a firm foundation in knowledge and basic human understanding, is so vital. They also illustrate how psychologists help individuals under stress confront, understand, and grow beyond not only the ordinary stresses they must face each day, but also the extraordinary stresses that today arise so often and so suddenly as a result of both natural disasters (such as volcanoes, floods, and fires) and humanmade disasters (such as toxic spills and acts of violence, crime, and terrorism)"--Preface.
