In the introduction to a special section of Psychoanalytic Psychology, Dr. Christina Biedermann (2014) outlines the purpose of a recent conference focused on war trauma and its treatments. The goals of the conference were to learn more about the experiences of soldiers and veterans; regain a relationship with them; and consider what they might need of clinicians, researchers, policymakers, and citizens. The section includes clinical practice and policy articles, as well as interviews with filmmakers and prominent members of the war trauma community. To read the freely-available introduction, see: http://www.apa.org/pubs/journals/features/pap-a0036319.pdf
