Natural and man-made disasters, war and urban trauma, and child maltreatment are all frequently associated with multiple stressors. Despite the methodological difficulties inherent in studying these diverse forms of traumatic experience, similar posttraumatic responses have been found in people from many different cultures. Although adolescents as a group have been less extensively studied than adults, there is sufficient evidence that they are affected in similar ways by traumatic stress. The next chapter will explore the psychological effects of trauma during this vulnerable period of development.
