Trauma, Dissociation, and Intimate Relationships
A Special Issue of the Journal of Trauma and Dissociation
The guest editors are inviting submissions on the associations among trauma, dissociation,
and intimate relationships.
In addition to its impact on individual psychological well-being, trauma creates barriers
to healthy interpersonal functioning. This is not limited to romantic relationships because
intimate connections with family members, friends, co-workers, and community members
can also be affected. Given the importance of healthy relationships for psychological health,
it isimperative that research addressing these issues for survivors of trauma be made
available to the research and clinical communities, and to the general public. We
primarily are seeking reports of original research and comprehensive reviews/meta-analyses
of existing research, but case studies, clinical conceptualization, and theoretical papers also
will be considered. All submissions will undergo peer review. Submissions will be evaluated for
topic relevance, methodological rigor, scientific and/or clinical value, and
implications for application.
Complete submissions will be accepted until December 1, 2010. Please refer
to the journal website for specific submission requirements (including a
required author assurance/ submission checklist) and more information about the
