New York, Sarajevo, Hiroshima, Berlin, Pforzheim, Manchester, Kuta, Riga - Städte wie diese wurden im 20. Jahrhundert Schauplätze von durch Menschen verursachten Katastrophen. Einige dieser Städte gerinnen in der globalen Wahrnehmung gleichsam zu Synonymen von schrecklichen Ereignissen, deren Häufung sich im vergangenen Jahrhundert mit den Möglichkeiten der medialen und literarischen Verbreitung von Stadtbildern und visualisierten/literarisierten Leiderfahrungen verbindet. Die sich in diesem Kontext stellenden Fragen nach konkreten Ausprägungen von traumatischen Erfahrungen im urbanen Raum und der Veränderung von Stadtwahrnehmung durch ein (potentiell) traumatisierendes Ereignis bilden die Ausgangspunkte des Sammelbandes "Stadt und Trauma". Konkret untersucht werden sowohl Veränderungen im Stadtbild, Transformationen von urbanen Gedächtnisorten und Lesarten als auch künstlerische, vor allem literarische Reflexionen solcher Veränderungen.

Der vorliegende Tagungsband versammelt insbesondere Beiträge von Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern, die sie in mehreren unterschiedlichen Tagungen von RAPRED-Girubuntu e.V in Kooperation mit der Universität Freiburg (AB Caritaswissenschaft und Christliche Sozialarbeit) und Ackermann-Gemeinde zur Diskussion gestellt haben. Die Flüchtlingskrise und ihre Konsequenzen für die Integration, die nicht nur Europa bzw. Deutschland sondern auch Burundi betreffen, werden unter dem besonderen Gesichtspunkt von Trauma, Traumabewältigung und Integration der Flüchtlinge und Vertriebenen vergleichend untersucht. Berichte aus der Praxis, Gedanken über die Friedensakademie im Afrika der großen Seen sowie Thesen über die politische Krise in Burundi werden ergänzend präsentiert. Dank der Unterstützung der SEZ Baden-Württemberg, des Erzbistums Freiburg und vor allem der Aktion Hoffnung Rottenburg-Stuttgart werden die Ergebnisse dieser Beiträge bereits in einem konkreten Projekt in Ruanda und Burundi umgesetzt. Mit dem Projekt "Ein Stück Hoffnung für die burundischen Flüchtlinge" wird eine Ausbildung von Multiplikatoren in Traumabewältigung in beiden Ländern durchgeführt, damit das Leiden der Flüchtlinge und Vertriebenen gelindert werden kann.

Children with a history of significant neglect and/or physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse are at higher risk for developing long-term emotional, behavioral, and mental health concerns, which have implications past childhood and into adulthood. Early trauma impacts individuals’ health in ways that reach far past the obvious and immediate damage. It correlates with higher incidences of various mental health disorders, it can alter brain structures, and it can make individuals more susceptible to a variety of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular disorders, fibromyalgia, and diabetes, among others. The research collected in this compendium offers vital guideposts to professionals across a wide spectrum of disciplines. It provides a foundation for ongoing research into this area of study, which is so vital for the well-being of our children and their futures. Understanding the long-term effects of childhood trauma is now integral to the daily clinical practice of professionals from many fields, including educators, social workers, mental health professionals, family and substance abuse counselors, police, caregivers, and criminal justice service providers. The boundaries between social workers and other professionals are blurred or nonexistent. This insightful book provides a nuanced look at the outcomes of childhood trauma and provides a greater understanding to help build more effective cross-disciplinary intervention strategies.

An invaluable sourcebook on the complex relationship between psychosis, trauma, and dissociation, thoroughly revised and updated This revised and updated second edition of Psychosis, Trauma and Dissociation offers an important resource that takes a wide-ranging and in-depth look at the multifaceted relationship between trauma, dissociation and psychosis. The editors – leaders in their field – have drawn together more than fifty noted experts from around the world, to canvas the relevant literature from historical, conceptual, empirical and clinical perspectives. The result documents the impressive gains made over the past ten years in understanding multiple aspects of the interface between trauma, dissociation and psychosis. The historical/conceptual section clarifies the meaning of the terms dissociation, trauma and psychosis, proposes dissociation as central to the historical concepts of schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder, and considers unique development perspectives on delusions and the onset of schizophrenia. The empirical section of the text compares and contrasts psychotic and dissociative disorders from a wide range of perspectives, including phenomenology, childhood trauma, and memory and cognitive disturbances, whilst the clinical section focuses on the assessment, differential diagnosis and treatment of these disorders, along with proposals for new and novel hybrid disorders. This important resource: • Offers extensive updated coverage of the field, from all relevant perspectives • Brings together in one text contributions from scholars and clinicians working in diverse geographical and theoretical areas • Helps define and bring cohesion to this new and important field • Features nine new chapters on: conceptions of trauma, dissociation and psychosis, PTSD with psychotic features, delusions and memory, trauma treatment of psychotic symptoms, and differences between the diagnostic groups on hypnotizability, memory disturbances, brain imaging, auditory verbal hallucinations and psychological testing Written for clinicians, researchers and academics in the areas of trauma, child abuse, dissociation and psychosis, but relevant for psychiatrists, psychologists and psychotherapists working in any area, the revised second edition of Psychosis, Trauma and Dissociation makes an invaluable contribution to this important evolving field.
