Abstract

In this editorial, the editor discusses the diversity of material in the current issue of Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice and Policy (PT: TRPP). He addresses questions that were raised by the pieces in this issue including ones as fundamental as what constitutes a psychological trauma. The editors believe that it is extremely important that as many facets of this terrain be examined and represented in the pages of PT: TRPPas possible. Only by continually and actively striving to maintain an inclusive perspective can we hope to work toward evolving a reasonable level of understanding of psychological trauma in all its richness and complexity.
