Psychotraumatology is attracting increasing attention in hospital, research and teaching contexts. The ability to diagnose and treat psychological traumata in psychosocial professions is becoming ever more important. This book provides a concise insight into the etiology, diagnostics and treatment of psychological traumata. Case studies and intervention strategies prepare professionals for contact with traumatised individuals. Particular emphasis is placed on the roles played by resources, resilience and digital media. The textbook is complemented by an overview of questions relating to evaluation and psychoeducational measures, in addition to internet links to further sources of assistance and organisations, etc.
