Expanding and Integrating

Welcome to the fall issue of Trauma Psychology News (TPN). In this issue, we bring you two new sections.  The Military Psychology section contains a discussion of a specialized intervention called Impact of Killing (IOK), by Drs. Shira Maguen and Kristine Burkman. In the first appearance of the Philosophical/Psychoanalyticsection, you will find a thought-provoking article/book-review by Dr. Robert Stolorow on what he terms “apocalyptic anxiety.”

The pages that follow contain a number of other compelling pieces, including a feature on posttraumatic growth in Haiti.  A bit later in the issue, the Multicultural and Diversity section offers an important discussion of research related to the victimization of transgender individuals. You will also find two strong student spotlight articles, an International section update, as well as coverage of Division-related awards from this past summer.  Finally, be sure to swing by the Who’s Who to learn a bit more about our excellent associate editor, Dr. Wyatt Evans.

TPN belongs to all Division 56 members.  Please be encouraged to send any feedback or suggestions you may have to traumapsychologynews@gmail.comWe welcome and value your perspective.

Best regards,


Jonathan Cleveland, Ph.D.
