Broken Spirits: The Treatment of Traumatized Asylum Seekers, Refugees, War and Torture Victims

by John P Wilson & Boris Drozdek (editors)
£67.99   hardback  Brunner-Routledge (2004)

Broken Spirits: The Treatment of Traumatized Asylum Seekers, Refugees, War and Torture Victims by John P Wilson & Boris Drozdek (editors) (Unfortunately this book is not available in paperback. We will not have this generally in stock due to the high price, but it can be ordered in 7-10 days usually).
 
This comprehensive text explores the enormity of the issues and mental health problems of the millions of refugees, asylum seekers, and torture victims around the world. While these topics have received attention in human rights and international relations circles, and the body of theoretical knowledge in the field is expanding, there is little practical information available. This book answers the need for integrating theoretical and assessment issues with practical and beneficial treatment modalities. Chapters by leading international authors discuss various therapeutic approaches, clinical interventions, and medical, legal and moral concerns, while considering cultural, religious and political-geographical concerns specific to these areas. Broken Spirits is the definitive work on helping refugees, asylum seekers and torture victims, allowing the therapist to joing with the client in a journey for human dignity.
