Trauma, Psychopathology, and Violence: Causes, Correlates, or Consequences critically examines correlates, consequences, and potential causal relationships involving trauma, psychopathology, and violence. The authors address methodological and theoretical challenges to understanding the interrelationships among trauma, psychopathology, and violence from the perspective of their own research fields. Chapters focus on different types of traumas, traumas occurring at different developmental stages and in different contexts, and the contributions of biological and genetic factors in understanding psychopathology and violence. Each of the chapters offers recommendations for needed research. The book is divided into six topical areas: (1) Setting the context; (2) Biological and genetic factors in understanding trauma, psychopathology and violence; (3) Trauma in childhood and risk of psychopathology and violence; (4) Culture and community context in understanding trauma, psychopathology, and violence; (5) Responses to disasters and terrorism; and (6) Trauma, psychopathology, and violence in the military. The third volume in the American Psychopathological Association series, Trauma, Psychopathology, and Violence is a much needed addition to the scholarship of the mental health consequences of violence and trauma.
