Trauma and Healing Under State Terrorism

Voorkant
Zed Books, 1996 - 246 pagina's
State terrorism and political violence are common phenomena in the world today; psychological warfare and human rights violations are integral to these forms of violence. This essential book explores state violence and shows how psychological and social trauma caused by the violations of basic rights can be healed.The authors develop a model of trauma and healing under state terrorism based on their fieldwork with the Chilean human rights movement. It is characterised by a powerful spirit of survivor resilience and a 'healing' approach which both in theory and practice understands individual suffering in a political perspective.
