Book review

What has political occupation done to Palestinian family life in the West Bank, Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip?

A psychological study of family members affected by unrest, Political Violence and the Palestinian Family: Implications for Mental Health and Well-Being examines families living in the midst of the conflict in the Middle East to help mental health professionals, social scientists, counselors, and students in these fields create appropriate intervention methods and provide relevant and effective services. Discussing coping, social support, ideology, and the sociopolitical conditions of Palestinian families, this comprehensive guide is the first book that specifically focuses on Palestinians.

Political Violence and the Palestinian Family combines quantitative and qualitative research to clarify the sociological and psychological impacts upon Palestinian family life in the wake of the Intifada (the Palestinian uprising against Israeli occupation). This book depicts the human cost of Israeli occupation on this population and the failure of the Palestinian Authority to ameliorate the effects of violence on this society.

Political Violence and the Palestinian Family discusses:

  • political victimization and how it affects families
  • the psychiatric symptomatology of Palestinians
  • the psychological and somatic sequelae of political trauma
  • techniques for successful sessions with Palestinian clients
  • appraisal and coping techniques
  • the values and beliefs of Palestinians
Political Violence and the Palestinian Family: Implications for Mental Health and Well-Being will help mental health professionals, social scientists, counselors, and students create appropriate intervention methods and provide relevant and effective services to Palestinian clients.
