This book, like the first, is organized into distinct sections. After a brief introduction reiterating the premises behind disaster mental health interventions, the book illustrates those premises with examples from various disaster and trauma responses, including September 11, the conflict in Mozambique and its effects on children, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the USS Cole bombing. These examples reinforce the appreciation of the hierarchy of disaster responses and highlight how disaster processes, which have been characterized elsewhere as the "disaster after the disaster," can influence psychiatric outcomes. Ambassador Prudence Bushnell's chapter on the Kenyan embassy bombing nicely describes how postdisaster feelings, although often not pathological, can have tremendous psychosocial implications if inadequately addressed. In her summary paragraph, Bushnell lays down principles of postdisaster interventions that are essential in disaster mental health.
