Survivors of Political Violence: Conceptualizations, Empirical Findings, and Ecological Interventions
Stanciu, Elena Amalia; Rogers, Jennifer L.
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v33 n3 p172-183 Sep 2011
There is a vast body of literature on survivors of political violence that has emerged over the past several decades. Most studies focus on the psychological effects of political violence on survivors, as understood within the Western framework of mental health. Studies that conceptualize and examine models that account for the complexity of the ecology of political violence are scarce. This paper synthesizes current conceptual and empirical findings about survivors of political violence. Interventions stemming from an ecological framework are also reviewed.
