The Unbroken Soul: Tragedy, Trauma, and Human Resilience

by Henri Parens (Editor), Harold P. Blum (Editor), Salman Akhtar (Editor)

The contributors to this volume are keenly aware that mental health professionals, while well trained to identify and treat psychopathology, are insufficiently informed or cognizant of human resilience, of how, and of what, intrapsychic, interpersonal, and psychosocial factors are operative in adaptive coping with and recovering from trauma. These authors, several of whom themselves were subjected to severe trauma, address the matter of resilience from the vantage point of their own personal and clinical experiences.
