Encyclopedia of trauma : an interdisciplinary guide by Charles R Figley( )

14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trauma is defined as a sudden, potentially deadly experience, often leaving lasting, troubling memories. Traumatology (the study of trauma, its effects, and methods to modify effects) is exploding in terms of published works and expanding in terms of scope. Originally a narrow specialty within emergency medicine, the field now extends to trauma psychology, military psychiatry and behavioral health, post-traumatic stress and stress disorders, trauma social work, disaster mental health, and, most recently, the subfield of history and trauma, with sociohistorical examination of long-term effects and meanings of major traumas experienced by whole communities and nations, both natural (Pompeii, Hurricane Katrina) and man-made (the Holocaust, 9/11). One reason for this expansion involves important scientific breakthroughs in detecting the neurobiology of trauma that is connecting biology with human behavior, which in turn, is applicable to all fields involving human thought and response, including but not limited to psychiatry, medicine and the health sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, and law. Researchers within these fields and more can contribute to a universal understanding of immediate and long-term consequences-both good and bad-of trauma, both for individuals and for broader communities and institutions. Trauma encyclopedias published to date all center around psychological trauma and its emotional effects on the individual as a disabling or mental disorder requiring mental health services. This element is vital and has benefited from scientific and professional breakthroughs in theory, research, and applications. Our encyclopedia certainly will cover this central element, but our expanded conceptualization will include the other disciplines and will move beyond the individual
Combat stress injury : theory, research, and management by Charles R Figley( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 1,066 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents a definitive collection of the most current theory, research, and practice in the area of combat and operational stress management, edited by two experts in the field.

The chapters in this volume will collectively demonstrate that combat stress can effectively be managed through prevention and training prior to combat, stress reduction methods during operations, and desensitization programs immediately following combat exposure
Compassion fatigue : coping with secondary traumatic stress disorder in those who treat the traumatized by Charles R Figley( )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Compassion Fatigue focuses on those individuals who provide therapy to victims of PTSD - crisis and trauma counselors, Red Cross workers, nurses, doctors, and other caregivers who themselves often become victim to secondary traumatic stress disorder (STSD) or "compassion fatigue" as a result of helping or wanting to help a traumatized person." "Edited by Charles R. Figley, a renowned pioneer in the field of traumatic stress studies, this book consists of eleven chapters, each written by a different specialist in the field. It addresses such questions as: What are compassion stress and compassion fatigue? What are the unintended, and often unexpected, deleterious effects of providing help to traumatized people? What are some examples of cases in which individuals were traumatized by helping, and how were they traumatized? What are the characteristics of the traumatized caregiver (e.g., race, gender, ethnicity, age, interpersonal competence, experience with psychological trauma) that account for the development, sustenance, preventability, and treatability of secondary traumatization? Is there a way to theoretically account for all these factors? What are the characteristics of effective programs to prevent or ameliorate compassion stress and its unwanted consequences?"--Jacket

Treating compassion fatigue by Charles R Figley( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There exists a "cost of caring" for others in emotional pain. Sometimes called secondary traumatic stress, this concept is used to describe the traumatic effect and the toll that helping those suffering with PTSD can have on the helping professional. This book builds upon the previous volume edited by Figley in 1995, Compassion Fatigue: Coping With Secondary Traumatic Stress Disorder in Those Who Treat the Traumatized. In the years since the publication of this volume, much has occurred in the field of traumatology, including the widening of the audience and the awareness of PTSD. This new book further clarifies the concept of compassion fatigue through theory, research, and treatment. (Midwest)

Families Under Fire fills these gaps with real-world examples, clear, concise prose, and nuts-and-bolts approaches for working with military families utilizing a systems-based practice that is effective regardless of branch of service or the practiti

Death and trauma : the traumatology of grieving( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the fields of thanatology and traumatology have received robust attention during their parallel development, little effort has been made to address their overlapping territory. This volume is the first attempt to do so. Specifically, the purpose of this book is fourfold. First is to provide a theoretical bridge between the two fields by providing conceptual terminology, such as defining "normal" versus "dysfunctional" bereavement and the meaning and range of death-related PTSD. The second confirms and illustrates the identical patterns of reactions between those who survive the death of a loved one and those who survive other traumatic events. Such an effort is part of the natural development of these fields of study. Next, the book applies the most useful theoretical models to the bereavement experience, and in turn acknowledges the utility of generalizing bereavement models to other traumatic experiences; in doing so, the two fields can enrich each other. Similarly, the volume's final purpose is to identify and apply the most useful and effective approaches in traumatology literature to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of traumatic stressors other than death

Traumatology of grieving : conceptual, theoretical, and treatment foundations by Charles R Figley( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traumatology of Grieving focuses on the unique features of death-related post-traumatic stress disorder, its assessment, and treatment. It enables mental health professionals to distinguish between those who are going through the 'normal' grieving process in the aftermath of a traumatic event, and those who are suffering from PTSD. With case examples that draw upon consistent concepts and definitions, and equal attention to scholarly and practical concerns, the book argues that traumatic elements must be worked through first before grief and loss accommodations are achieved. More importantly, the new research and treatment methods presented by the leading experts in the field provide professionals with a valuable guide for understanding and helping those who grieve a loss under traumatic circumstances

Psychological first aid( Visual )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The field of mental health has changed from a deficit model to a strength model. And that's what psychological first aid does. It says that we don't have to look at the deficits and dysfunctions. Instead, we should look at the strengths that the individual has and build on them. " Chris Dunning, PhD. Many mental health professionals volunteer their time as first responders in the wake of large-scale disasters. All too often, they've found that their clinical training and therapeutic instincts don't fully apply to the circumstances in which they find themselves, and may actually render them less effective. It was in response to this problem that the psychological first aid model was developed. In this video series, leading researchers share the model they've helped create, one that' designed to provide the tools and guidance necessary for clinicians to respond appropriately to the often overwhelming needs of disaster survivors. The observations of the theorists are complemented by interviews with first responders whose assignments have taken them to New York after 9/11, the Superdome after Katrina, and Haiti after its earthquake. First-person accounts from survivors of a California firestorm also are included. Presenters include Patricia Watson, Josef Ruzek, Chris Dunning, Charles Figley, and John Violanti
