Carll, a practicing psychologist in Long Island who has developed training courses in trauma psychology since the 1990s, has assembled 24 chapters by specialists on this burgeoning field to create a reference that will be of interest to mental health professionals and the general reader. Volume One contains 12 chapters on violence and disasters, including well-known disasters like 9/11 and the 2004 Madrid bombings. Specific types of traumas and their impact and treatment are described in separate chapters, including stalking, killing as trauma, kidnap, and large- and small-scale fires. Volume Two contains 12 chapters on those traumas associated with health and illness, including motor vehicle accidents, AIDS, spinal cord injury, pain, and youth homelessness. Many of the chapters include discussion of the prevalent symptom of trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
