Description

This issue of the PTSD Research Quarterly is the third in an occasional series on the epidemiology of trauma and PTSD around the world, following previous issues on Latin America (Fall 2009) and the Middle East (Fall 2010). Whereas published reviews of epidemiologic studies focus primarily on North America, this series aims to highlight other relevant bodies of work. This issue focuses on research conducted in a specific country, Japan, rather than in a region of the world. There are three reasons for this choice. First, Japan is a highly developed country with a strong research infrastructure, and thus a significant body of work has emerged that spans the range of trauma survivors, including the general population (multi-event studies) and victims of violence, automobile accidents, fire, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and war. The area that is least well represented in the Japanese literature is military trauma, which follows from Japan’s post-World War II history of having only a defensive force for many years. This bibliography is limited to English language articles, but interested readers will find many additional Japanese-language articles (with English abstracts) indexed in PILOTS. For an historical perspective on traumatic stress studies in Japan, the single best source is Goto and Wilson (2003).

Audience

Mental Healthcare professionals and veterans suffering from PTSD or other mental health issues, and their loved ones, would be interested in this resource to see the help that is available for them, and to read about PTSD studies in other parts of the world.
