About the Authors
  • There is now ample evidence from the preclinical and clinical fields that early life trauma has both dramatic and long-lasting effects on neurobiological systems and functions that are involved in different forms of psychopathology as well as on health in general. To date, a comprehensive review of the recent research on the effects of early and later life trauma is lacking. This book fills an obvious gap in academic and clinical literature by providing reviews which summarize and synthesize these findings. Topics considered and discussed include the possible biological and neuropsychological effects of trauma at different epochs and their effect on health. This book will be essential reading for psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, mental health professionals, social workers, pediatricians and specialists in child development.

    • The most comprehensive summary of recent and accumulated evidence for the impact of early life trauma
    • An essential psychiatry text, written by internationally recognised experts and opinion leaders
    • Covers an increasingly important and previously neglected area of psychopathology

    This book is pivotal in the historic battle to verify that early life trauma exists and is a hidden underworld that manifests itself in all phases of life. It gives an explanation for many intractable social problems that cause expenditures in the billions of dollars to treat. It will be like a hydrogen bomb in the medical world where many practitioners like to divide body and mind and are thus conquered in their attempts at effective treatments. Bravo to the brave and brilliant editors and writers for taking on this taboo subject and legitimizing the suffering of untold numbers of children and adults.
