Anger in the context of assessment and management of refugee trauma.

John O'Connor

Anger in the context of trauma differs from other types of anger in that it is a reaction to the violation of human rights.  In this  presentation two case examples of refugee trauma will be discussed to compare the efficacy of different approaches to managing anger in this context.  The first case study will look at standard anger management techniques and the second will take in to consideration issues relevant to traumatised refugees including traumatic grief and post-trauma stressors.

Recorded at the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS)
30 August 2010, New South Wales, Australia.
