Cambodia’s Hidden Scars: Trauma Psychology in the Wake of the Khmer Rouge

2011Van Schaack B, Reicherter D, Chhang Y

This text explores the profound impact of war and genocide on human psychology with a  focus on Cambodia and the work of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). Interdisciplinary in nature, this edited volume presents the current research on the impact of trauma not only on survivors' mental health processes but also on the ability of survivors to participate in legal processes, such as the trials of surviving members of the Khmer Rouge before the ECCC.
