This volume, with contributions by leading scholars, researchers and clinicians, focuses on the World Trade Center attack and its psychological consequences and thereby deepens our understanding of trauma in psychopathology, interpersonal psychobiology, epidemiology and social policy - the contributors pay particular attention to the fundamental relationship of human bonds and trauma. coming together in complementary ways that sustain a key finding: that trauma must be understood in relation and attachment contexts.
