This volume synthesizes cutting-edge research on natural processes of resilience and recovery, highlighting implications for trauma treatment and prevention. Prominent experts examine what enables many trauma survivors to heal over time without intervention, as well what causes others to develop long-term psychiatric problems. Identifying key, modifiable risk and resilience factors--such as cognitions and beliefs, avoidance, pain, and social support--the book provides recommendations for when (and when not) to intervene to promote recovery. Illustrative case examples are included. A section on specific populations discusses children, military personnel, and low socioeconomic status or marginalized communities.

“This book is likely to be characterized by readers as hopeful and optimistic with an emphasis on individual strengths versus vulnerabilities. Interest in select chapters may extend beyond the professional community to members of the general public, including trauma victims and their loved ones….Facilitating Resilience and Recovery Following Trauma provides an optimal balance of theory, research, and practice. All chapters include relevant case examples along with take-home recommendations for conceptualizing trauma symptom development, expression, maintenance, and remission….All of the chapters are well-written and offer extensive citations in their comprehensive reviews of the respective literature. The book would seem to be essential reading for researchers, practitioners, and even loved-ones wishing to address a balance of victim strengths, as well as vulnerabilities, in their efforts to cope with traumatic experiences that are often unimaginable.”
