Synthesizing insights from psychiatry, social psychology, and anthropology, this important work sets out a framework for therapy that is as culturally informed as it is productive. An international panel of 23 therapists offers contextual knowledge on PTSD, coping skills, and other sequelae experienced by the survivors of traumatic events. Case studies from Egypt to Chechnya demonstrate various therapeutic approaches. Authors explore the balance of inter- and intrapersonal factors in reactions to trauma and dispel misconceptions that hinder progress in treatment.

From the reviews: "Voices of Trauma addresses the important subject of understanding and responding to the subjective and communal consequences of trauma cross culturally. This is a topic of considerable significance in our dangerous and uncertain world. I give this volume and its strong group of contributors high marks for addressing treatment issues in a professionally and morally serious way that may well improve care for trauma victims globally." (Arthur Kleinman, Esther and Sidney Rabb Professor of Anthropology; Chair, Department of Anthropology, Harvard University; Professor of Medical Anthropology and Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School) "The stated goal of Voices of Trauma: Treating Psychological Trauma Across Cultures is noble - just what is needed by our battered and wounded world. The book makes available knowledge in the field of trauma so as to aid in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of clients from different cultural backgrounds. ... The intended audience for this book is composed of mental health professionals, clinical and counseling psychologists, social workers, and graduate students." (Alejandra Suarez, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 53 (20), 2008)
