Assessing Trauma Across Cultures from a Multigenerational Perspective
This chapter emphasizes the time dimension in trauma assessment. As will be detailed, an approach that examines preceding generations’ trauma exposure yields the most complete assessment of an individual’s posttraumatic status. This status is best understood within my multidimensional, multidisciplinary framework. This chapter draws heavily on the International Handbook of Multigenerational Legacies of Trauma (Danieli, 1998) that the interested reader is urged to consult for further details.
