FMO Thematic Guide: Psychosocial Issues

Carola Eyber

A web-based study of psychosocial resources and documents reveals that there is not a balanced representation of different positions and approaches to the issues on the Internet. While there is a large amount of literature on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) on the web, very few documents and resources that present a cultural or community-based approach to psychosocial issues are available on the Internet. One of the reasons for this may be the unequal access to electronic resources and publications available to scholars who work within a trauma approach and those who do not. In order not to replicate the trauma bias that currently exists on the web in this guide, a number of articles, books, and papers that are not electronically available are reviewed here.
