Treatments across cultures
Theme leader: Debra Kaysen
Interventions and treatments for trauma-related disorders across cultures
Trauma is not limited by national borders. In addition, from a global perspective, exposure to one or more traumatic events is the norm rather than the exception. Importantly, in spite of a lot of overlap and commonalities, traumatic experiences, trauma-related symptoms, as well as treatment approaches differ across geographic regions and cultures.
The Global Collaboration is currently initiating projects with the aim of generating and disseminating more in-depth knowledge about the cultural aspects of trauma and its psychological, physical and social consequences as well as their treatment.
