The last decade has seen phenomenal advances in brain science and in our understanding of the biology of trauma. This has resulted in many ingenious applications to assist survivor recovery. At the same time the field of trauma, particularly in the context of trauma generated by human rights violations, has become more aware of the effects of trauma at different levels of society, and about the implications of culture for understanding how trauma affects people, families and communities, and how healing and social reintegration can be assisted.
