Understanding terrorism : psychosocial roots, consequences, and interventions by Fathali M Moghaddam( Book )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding Terrorism: Psychosocial Roots, Consequences, and Interventions brings the powerful resources of psychological science to bear on the issue of terrorism. Terrorism by definition attempts to change the psychological state of its targets, so psychologists are well positioned to cast light on this phenomenon. In this volume, leading international experts conduct an incisive analysis of the psychosocial basis of terrorism and suggest ways to prevent it, including both strategies to eliminate the conditions that give rise to terrorism and effective ways to treat victims of terrorism. Social psychologists, therapists, and social workers as well as political scientists and lawmakers will find this volume to be indispensable."--Jacket
Ethnocultural aspects of posttraumatic stress disorder : issues, research, and clinical applications( Book )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the concept of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has captured the attention and concern of clinicians and scientists, and reactions to traumatic stress have been extensively studied. But are such reactions universal? Although the PTSD diagnosis is now used internationally, it is by no means clear whether the diagnosis is meaningful across cultures and ethnic groups. Most of the research and clinical experience validating the diagnosis has been carried out in Western industrialized nations, and some clinicians have raised the question of ethnocentric bias in its formulation. This richly documented, edited volume is the first systematic examination of ethnocultural aspects of PTSD. Leaders in the field of PTSD research and practice explore both universal and culture-specific reactions to trauma, and discuss implications for research, treatment, and prevention. The multidisciplinary perspective of the book will appeal to a broad audience of psychologists, psychiatrists, anthropologists, epidemiologists, sociologists, and social workers

Ethnocultural perspectives on disasters and trauma : foundations, issues, and applications by Anthony J Marsella( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crises do not occur in cultural vacuums, but help often does. Lack of cultural understanding, sensitivity, and competencies can hamper and even harm professional response to disasters. To help and heal, one must know and understand the cultural background of disaster victims. This text offers readers knowledge in these areas of disaster response
Social change and psychosocial adaptation in the Pacific Islands by Anthony J Marsella( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of the Pacific Islands is noted for great upheavals, from colonization to tribal warfare, natural disasters to nuclear testing. More recently, political change, increasing technology and urbanization, and conflict between traditional and Western cultures have led to considerable social problems in the region. Substance and alcohol abuse, violence, cultural displacement, and suicide bring uncertainty to day-to-day life and stretch already overextended social resources." "Social Change and Psychosocial Adaptation in the Pacific Islands sensitively balances situations applicable across this vast geographical area with data and events relevant to individual nations in Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia. Chapters are written by native clinicians, cultural anthropologists, cross-cultural psychologists, and other professionals serving the region. Each provides historical background, details the country's ethnic makeup, summarizes major cultural identity/survival issues, and examines its existing health care and mental health care systems."--BOOK JACKET

"Fear of Persecution offers an overview of the plight of internally displaced people and refugees. Every year there are tens of millions of people around the world who have fled or are in flight due to the fear of persecution based upon race, religion, nationality, or membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and who then become invisible. James D. White and Anthony J. Marsella bring together essays that address issues emerging from the current relationship of international law, human rights, and refugee health and well-being. This book discusses and critically analyzes the evolution of international responses and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), the influence of the East/West cultural binary, and possible frameworks for peace-building efforts."--Jacket

Cultural Conceptions of Mental Health and Therapy by Anthony J Marsella( )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within the past two decades, there has been an increased interest in the study of culture and mental health relationships. This interest has extended across many academic and professional disciplines, including anthropology, psychology, sociology, psychiatry, public health and social work, and has resulted in many books and scientific papers emphasizing the role of sociocultural factors in the etiology, epidemiology, manifestation and treatment of mental disorders. It is now evident that sociocultural variables are inextricably linked to all aspects of both normal and abnormal human behavior. But, in spite of the massive accumulation of data regarding culture and mental health relationships, sociocultural factors have still not been incorporated into existing biological and psychological perspectives on mental disorder and therapy. Psychiatry, the Western medical specialty concerned with mental disorders, has for the most part continued to ignore socio-cultural factors in its theoretical and applied approaches to the problem. The major reason for this is psychiatry's continued commitment to a disease conception of mental disorder which assumes that mental disorders are largely biologically-caused illnesses which are universally represented in etiology and manifestation. Within this perspective, mental disorders are regarded as caused by universal processes which lead to discrete and recognizable symptoms regardless of the culture in which they occur. However, this perspective is now the subject of growing criticism and debate
