The Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment and Trauma (JAMT)announces the forthcoming Special Issue on:
Multicultural Perspectives on Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma
Guest Editors: Skultip Sirikantraporn, PsyD and Julii Green, PsyD
Manuscripts that cover multicultural perspectives on intergenerational transmission of trauma will be considered for this Special Issue. Transmission of trauma from one generation to later generations has been a subject of study for decades, such as the topic of Holocaust survivors and their offspring. Several mechanisms have been identified, including parenting style, over-identification with parents’ experiences, transmission of fear and mistrust, and parental narratives (or lack thereof) of the trauma. The secondary traumatization surfaced in many posttraumatic manifestations in the children and families of the trauma survivors, such as somatic symptoms (e.g., headaches, dizziness, difficulty breathing), emotional numbing, a sense of a foreshortened future, and heightened sensations.
Epidemiology studies of PTSD and trauma exposure suggest that in adults, at least 25% of the population will have experienced such an event, and by the age of 45, most of the population will have experienced a traumatic event with a significant subset of the population experiencing multiple events. While the topic of intergenerational transmission of trauma has been studied, it has been limited only to a few cultural groups. This call for papers attempts to build on the existing literature in this topic and expand it to cover the phenomenon in various cultural groups. We conceptualize multiculturalism as including diversity pertaining to age, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religious/spiritual belief, gender, etc.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Conceptual models that explain mechanisms of intergenerational transmission of trauma from a multicultural standpoint;
- Identification of protective and risk factors at different points in the lifespan, pertinent to specific cultural groups and/or multiple cultural groups;
- Links between mechanisms of intergenerational transmission of trauma and prevention or intervention programs for specific cultural groups; and
- Review of protective and risk factors through meta-analysis.
Articles vary between 20-30 pages double spaced. Manuscripts may be submitted through theJAMT website: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/wamt
Please note in your cover letter that you are submitting for the special issue. The deadline for submitting manuscripts is April 30, 2015. Inquiries regarding topic or scope for the special issue may be sent to Skultip Sirikantraporn (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Julii Green(email@example.com). Please be sure to CC: firstname.lastname@example.org on all communications.
