In this volume, John Wilson combines two seemingly incongruous ideas – the universality of traumatic experiences and the principles inherent in the diversity of experience and meaning that form the basis of multiculturalism. On the one hand, we have the universal archetypes of trauma, stress, and coping, as traumatic events can occur anywhere, at any time, and affect anyone. On the other hand, cultures have developed independent systems for understanding, coping, and explaining traumatic events. Addressing real-life issues faced by the first responders and disaster relief caregivers, this groundbreaking volume engages and analyzes the integration of these two ideas to further understand their intersection and their practical application in different societies around the world.
