Summary "This comprehensive text explores the enormity of the issues and mental health problems of the millions of refugees, asylum seekers, and torture victims around the world. While these topics have received attention in human rights and international relations circles, and the body of theoretical knowledge in the field is expanding, there is little practical information available. This book answers the need for integrating theoretical and assessment issues with practical and beneficial treatment modalities."--BOOK JACKET
