The Trauma & Resilience: Theory & Practice from the Israeli Experience provides you with a broad picture of the latest developments in the trauma field, contextualized by the Israeli experience.

Setting Description:
From the hilltop of the Mount Scopus campus, the incredible panorama of Jerusalem unfolds. Medieval maps show Jerusalem as the heart of the world. Astonishingly, it remains there: the seam line where West meets East, the First World faces the Third World, and where Judaism, Christianity, and Islam meet.
