A majority of trauma research has been conducted in Western nations on patients from a similar background, and its findings are typically published in English, with only 6% in languages other than English (Bedard, Greif, &Buckley, 2004). Thus, clinicians and researchers do not yet know whether people from non-Western societies have similar reactions or symptom patterns to specific trauma. This chapter aims to fill this knowledge gap by reviewing available literature on the assessment of posttraumatic stress reactions and related psychiatric disturbances in contemporary Chinese societies of Hong Kong, mainland China, and Taiwan.
