In one forum, Journal of Loss and Trauma brings together in one forum scholarship on personal losses relating to family, health, and aging issues and both psychological and physical health, as well as interpersonal losses occupying the broader contexts such as extended family, community life, and society as a whole. In order to broaden the reader's perspective on loss and bereavement, and their pervasiveness in human life, the journal defines loss as a major reduction in a person's resources, whether personal, material, or symbolic, to which the person was emotionally attached. Types of loss covered include: death and dying; dissolution and divorce; loss of employment; life-threatening diseases and long-term disability; loss of possessions; homelessness; recurring and haunting memories; disenfranchisement and stigmatization; losses resulting from war and violence; and aging. The journal highlights common as well as differing impacts of major losses while revealing commonalities of the various healing processes. Interdisciplinary in its approach, this quarterly publishes empirically oriented papers, case studies with intervention strategies, point-counterpoint discussions, theoretical analyses, essays on concepts or links among relevant fields, and therapeutic approaches. Book reviews are regular features.
