Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743236254, Paperback)This book investigates the psychology of victimization. It shows how fundamental assumptions about the world's meaningfulness and benevolence are shattered by traumatic events, and how victims become subject to self-blame in an attempt to accommodate brutality. The book is aimed at all those who for personal or professional reasons seek to understand what psychological trauma is and how to recover from it.

This is the first book to illuminate the general psychological processes underlying responses to all traumas - past work has focused only on a single type, such as bereavement or rape. With the larger theoretical framework provided here, we can solve the larger puzzle - understanding not only the impact of overwhelming life events, but also the numerous coping processes that occur in the aftermath of trauma.
