Learning, Adjustment and Stress Disorders

With Special Reference to Tsunami Affected Regions


Evelin Witruk, David Riha, Alexandra Teichert and Norman Haase

This book contains selected contributions from the international workshop Learning, Adjustment and Stress Disorders – with special reference to Tsunami affected Regions organised by Evelin Witruk and the team of Educational and Rehabilitative Psychology at the University of Leipzig in January 2006. The book contains new results and the state of the art in Psychology, Neuropsychology, Special Education, Rehabilitative Sport and Pharmacology of learning, adjustment and stress disorders. The book has an interdisciplinary character. It aims not only at bringing together different fundamentally-oriented approaches, but also at connecting these approaches with applied work. It strives towards fostering a scientific exchange that promotes emergence of synergy effects and real progress in the understanding of learning, adjustment and stress disorders, particularly after natural disasters like Tsunami.
