Part of the The Plenum Series on Stress and Coping book series (SSSO)


This volume has presented a diversified approach to the treatment of trauma. Many of the directors of the comprehensive trauma centers described in this book discussed their views of the “state of the trauma world” at the present time. These views differ, to say the least. In fact, many of their perceptions of the existence, intensity, and frequency of traumatic events are in direct juxtaposition. In spite of these contrasting views, the respondents offer insight into the current state of trauma in the world today. The various respondents are cited at the conclusion of their statements.
