Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415943973, Hardcover)Mental health problems among asylum seekers and refugees are becoming a public issue, but awareness of this problem among the mental health community is relatively low. Although advances have been made in the provision of innovative mental health services for asylum seekers and refuges with PTSD, they are not systemized, and not widely known to professionals in the field. A publication offering practical guidelines for the treatment of torture victims and political refugees does not exist. Broken Spirits aims to bring together the works of the most respected mental health professionals - from the U.S. and abroad - and make available the most current knowledge on complex PTSD, forced migration and cultural sensitivity in diagnosis and treatment.

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.
