About this item

Contributors to this book include psychologists and counselors practicing in areas such as counterterrorism, diversity, war trauma, refugee mental health, child trafficking, and military psychology; others are scholars in peace studies, public health, sociology, and law. They examine the impact of terrorism around the world and related psychological issues such as hysteria and rape. They offer insight on how various groups, such as children, elders, and refugees, are affected by terrorism. Chapters are organized in sections on theory and observation, approaches for understanding and healing, and questioning authority. Some specific topics considered are violence perpetrated by child soldiers, using psychology to sabotage social bonds in terrorist organizations, and psychological aspects of suicide terrorism. The book also provides a psychosocial examination of the rise of ISIL. The book’s audience includes students, scholars, policy makers, and practitioners in psychology, counseling, therapy, political science, and policy analysis.
