Issues in Violence, Disaster,

Health, and Illness
Edited by
Elizabeth K. Carll, PhD
Two Volumes
Volume 1: Violence and Disaster
Volume 2: Health and Illness

Published by Greenwood Praeger

Also available at

The volumes offer a gripping overview, with case examples, intervention and policy
recommended for diverse traumatic events spanning natural disasters, violence, accidents,
and chronic health and social issues.
Learn how to intervene in 24 types of traumatic events including:

● Domestic Violence ● Stalking ● Workplace Violence ● Kidnap ● Motor Vehicle Accidents

● Pain ● Children and War ● Fires ● Torture ● Terrorism ● Floods ● Burns ● AIDS
● Spinal Cord Injury ● Children and Medical Illness ● Anesthesia Awareness


These two volumes on "Trauma Psychology: Issues in Violence, Disaster, Health, and Illness", aptly
edited by Elizabeth Carll, represent an impressive array of research, practice, and public policy
recommendations spanning the entire range of human trauma. It is must reading for everyone in
health services, the media, professionals in many disciplines, and especially politicians. I found it to
be a treasure trove of vital information not only about core issues in violence and disasters, both
natural and malevolent, but equally so about treatment, prevention, and resilience.

“Trauma Psychology: Issues in Violence, Disaster, Health and Illness”offers an important advance in
our understanding of the many arenas in which trauma can occur and the therapeutic steps and

“Trauma Psychology Issues in Violence, Disaster, Health, and Illness”addresses the oft-neglected
psychological aftermath of trauma from the useful perspective of the varieties of traumatic
experience. Leading experts authoritatively discuss the phenomenology and treatment of the
emotional residue of trauma with an intellectually satisfying combination of data and clinical

These 2 volumes of "Trauma Psychology: Issues in Violence, Disaster, Health, and Illness" break new
ground in articulating current thinking and approaches to a new field of public and clinical concern.
They would make a useful text for advanced undergraduates, beginning graduate level students, as
well as professionals who are in the mental health fields e.g. firemen, police etc who deal with
trauma as part of their normal activities.
