Women & War : Opening Pandoras Box -- Intimate Relationships in the Shadow of Traumatic Experiences Hardback
Edited by Marie-Claire Patron, Ami Rokach
War and posttraumatic stress disorder go, unfortunately, hand in hand, and war seems to be raging around us no matter where we are on the globe.
More common than not, scientific literature addresses trauma suffered by those who directly experienced war.
However, research has not adequately addressed the effects that war has on those who have not participated in combat, but who live with those who have.
The family members, mainly the spouses, welcome these soldiers back to everyday life and consequently experience secondary trauma related to the damaging effects that the war had on those soldiers.
This book brings a firsthand account of women who greet their traumatised family members that return from the battleground and attempt to integrate into a society that does not understand what they went through.
Each chapter describes the experiences of such women, and how they triumph despite very difficult and unfavorable home conditions.
Chapters end with a commentary by a clinical psychologist of the women, their experiences, the effects of those experiences, and what ultimately helped them triumph.
