Sammanfattning

Research on short- and long-term response to trauma has been expanding over the past twenty years and has found new urgency in recent national and international events. As our understanding of risk factors for who will be most severely affected by trauma expands, what we don't know about the interactions between vulnerabilities and risk factors, peritraumatic and posttraumatic factors, physiological and psychological factors becomes more apparent. An international consensus conference on "Early Trauma Responses and Psychopathology: Theoretical and Empirical Directions," co-sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the University of Texas-Pan American, and the National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (NCPTSD) was planned for September 24-25, 2001. The events of 9/11/2001 tragically showed the relevance of the conference, and forced its rescheduling for 2002. The workshop organizers--Etzel Cardeña, PhD, Regina Dolan-Sewell, PhD, Terry Keane, PhD, Earns Tuma, PhD, and Robert Ursano, MD--set a conference agenda that included the following issues: terminology and definitions, diagnostic issues, evaluation of acute psychological and biological reactions to trauma, risk factors for acute and chronic psychopathology, and prevention and early intervention. The papers in this volume provide an excellent overview of the state of the literature on acute reactions to trauma. They provide an integrative summary of factors listed above, and provide immediately useful recommendations for further research and clinical interventions among both children and adults.
