In the United Kingdom since 1987 38,000 people have been referred to The Medical Foundation for specialist psychological treatment relating to warfare, and in the past 80 years 75,000 military personnel have received counselling from the Ex-Services Mental Welfare Society. The topic of warfare induced psychological stress and trauma is a vast one.

This book gives an unique, person-centred insight into counselling victims of warfare (either civilians or military personnel) whose trauma is physical or psychological. It covers such topics as anger, death, nightmares, recovered memories, emotional and physical pain, and alcohol use. It also contains a list of useful contacts for further support and helpful tips. Counsellors, trainees and other healthcare and social care professionals dealing with civilian or military victims of warfare will find this guide invaluable.
