Mental Health of Refugee and Conflict-Affected Populations

Mental Health Among Adult Survivors of War in Low- and Middle-Income Countries: Epidemiology and Treatment Outcome

This book provides an overview of theoretical, empirical, and clinical conceptualizations of mental health following exposure to human rights violations. There are currently hundreds of millions of individuals affected by war and conflict across the globe, and over 68 million people who are forcibly displaced. The field of refugee and post-conflict mental health is growing exponentially, as researchers investigate the factors that impact on psychological disorders in these populations, and design and evaluate new treatments to reduce psychological distress. This volume will be a substantial contribution to the literature on mental health in refugee and post-conflict populations, as it details the state of the evidence regarding the mental health of war survivors living in areas of former conflict as well as refugees and asylum-seekers.
