Community-Based Warviews, Resiliency and Healing: The Internally Displaced Persons in Mindanao and the Karen Refugees on the Thai-Burmese Border

[1]Al Fuertes, Assistant, Professor, New Century College

Community-Based Warviews, Resiliency and Healing (VDM Verlag, October 2008) shows how internationally displaced persons deal with the phenomenological realities of trauma and violence. Fuertes believes that despite the socio-economic, political, and psychological hardships they face, these populations are able to heal and rebuild through self-awareness and international community assistance.
