Since the start of the twenty-first century, Jungian psychoanalysts around the world have turned their attention toward the impact of collective traumatic events on individuals and history. In this volume, Jungian psychoanalysts from Russia, Eastern Europe, Israel, Africa, and Asia join a number of others who have made recent important contributions to the growing literature on this subject. Some of the chapters are personal and bear witness to the authors’ own experience with cultural trauma; others offer a more general, historical look at the effects of trauma on patients and on cultures as a whole. Questions of practical treatment both for individuals and cultures are addressed, touching on political action and on possibilities for raising collective consciousness of a traumatic past and its present and continuing actuality.

Children born during the post-WWII era of peace and prosperity entered history at a time dominated by I-Like-Ike politics and domestic security. As they approached adolescence, however, their world was shaken by major cultural, economic, social, and political upheaval. And although it was time of great innovation and progress, a sense of chaos and bitterness began to envelop the country. It was the ‘60s. For many Americans, a mere mention of this decade evokes an extraordinary time and place in the country’s – and their own – history.
Adolescents who had been enjoying the technological and medical advances of the era – television, drive-in movies, rock-and-roll, vaccinations that prevented once-incurable diseases – now were also experiencing the fallout from the Civil Rights Movement, domestic terrorism, stagflation, and (perhaps most significant) the Vietnam War.
From Adolescence to Adulthood in the Vietnam Era provides a unique, detailed, long-term study of the psychological and social worlds of male adolescents who were on the cusp of adulthood as the 1960s were ending. This longitudinal analysis follows adolescent boys who graduated with the class of 1969 and transitioned into adulthood either through military service, full-time employment, or college life. The results examine the different pathways these boys chose and the affect these choices had on their transition from adolescents to young adult men.
Understanding the factors that place an individual at greater risk of developing psychopathology has important implications for both treatment and prevention of psychological disorders. Of critical relevance in this regard is the exploration of the potential influence of the family. Parenting and the family environment are considered to significantly contribute to a child’s early development and adjustment. It follows then that parental behavior may also be of importance in the development, maintenance and or the prevention of psychopathology. Over the past 50 years there has been a considerable amount of research as well as controversy surrounding the link between parenting and psychopathology. The purpose of this book is to provide researchers and clinicians with state-of-the art research findings, presented by experts in the field, on the role of the family in the development and maintenance of psychopathology.
This edited book is divided into 3 sections. The first addresses broader issues of theory and methodology and the second provides separate chapters relating to the role of the family in the development and maintenance of specific psychopathologies. A final section discusses the involvement of the family in treatment and prevention.
