A few days ago I made an overview of the 20 most cited research papers on traumatic stress. And then came to the conclusion that what I’m really after is sharing a list of what you find the most inspiring ones (on trauma recovery or any related mental health topic)…
Which papers have made you really enthusiastic? Which articles have changed your thinking? Which publications do you re-read regularly?
We’ll have a #traumaresearch chat about these questions on Wed 28/Thurs 29 March (your local time). But an hour is short, not everyone is able to join, and it may be nice to start a little thread that informs the chat and remains available afterwards (it’s also possible that I’m just a little too curious to wait another week :-)). So please leave a comment with your favorite(s).
It doesn’t matter whether a paper is high-impact / often cited or not. The only thing that counts is that you are a fan. And if you have time, please tell us why you like it.
To start off (let’s aim for the 20 most inpirational papers): one of my favorites is the review by Salmon & Bryant on the influence of developmental factors on posttraumatic stress. I read it in the early stages of my PhD research and keep getting back to it because it’s so rich (and quite unique) in explaining how children process information, depend on parents’ coping behavior, and understand emotions in the context of trauma:
Salmon, K., & Bryant, R. (2002). Posttraumatic stress disorder in children: The influence of developmental factors Clinical Psychology Review, 22 (2), 163-188 DOI: 10.1016/S0272-7358(01)00086-1
