Family Risk and Resilience in the Context of War and Terrorism
MacDermid Wadsworth, Shelley M.
Journal of Marriage and Family, v72 n3 p537-556 Jun 2010
War and terrorism are exerting increasing force on world affairs, with growing implications for families and the scholars who study them. In this review, I consider the implications of mass violence for families, with particular emphasis on families with members serving in the U.S. military and families around the world who live where mass violence occurs. Mass violence poses significant threats to mental health and family functioning, but individuals and families also display striking levels of resilience.
