This is a wonderful book detailing the psychological aftermath for anyone who has survived trauma of any kind. I highly suggest it for anyone who works in a mental health field or interacts with traumatic survivors in any way. Remember, you never know who may have survived an unspoken trauma in the past.

Heavily researched and docuumented study on victims of trauma especially war, rape, and accident victims and how highly prevalent this problem is, with people suffering from PTSD and all that entails. Does not mention much about bullying in schools and workplaces and how that can also cause the same trauma.
