The past decade has witnessed a dramatic transformation in the nature and use of political terrorism. Psychology of Terrorism is an indispensable resource in the field of psychology and terrorism. Given the relative newness of the discipline, there is a great need for a text that covers relevant aspects of psychology related to terrorism. This book presents the newest findings on treatment and clinical response protocols. Other topics included the theory and history ofterrorism, types and effects of weapons of mass destruction or disruption, the role of nation, state, and local agencies and volunteer groups responding to terrorist threat, military response, psychological consequences of terrorism, special populations, prevention, training, and research. This text fillsthe need for a single, comprehensive resource for mental health clinicians, medical care providers, researchers, educators, and others who respond to acts of terrorism. There is currently no existing, comprehensive text that provides information on psychology and terrorism. The Handbook represents an international collaboration with the goal of serving as the benchmark in the rapidly growing and evolving field of psychology and terrorism.
