We are organising a Special Issue entitled “Trauma and Loss” for the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
The lived experience of trauma and loss shape the ways in which clinical and non-clinical services respond to the social, emotional and physical wellbeing of individuals. In order to address the ways in which experiences of trauma, and better understand the way people experience loss, as well as opportunities for post traumatic growth and post-traumatic stress, can be enhanced by inclusion of literature that presents multifactorial ways in which trauma and loss are intertwined. Community-based as well as workplace programs, initiatives, and strategies that provide scope to enhance the evidence base and new and innovative clinical and nonclinical programs, with a focus on the inclusion of lived experience, will be encouraged.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to trauma, loss, grief, bereavement, as well as crisis and ongoing strategies. We strongly encourage submissions that demonstrate collaborative practices, with people with lived experience of trauma, service providers, and researchers. The listed keywords are noted below.
