About this Research Topic
Novel medical, theological/spiritual, philosophical, sociological approaches, with qualities and aspects that have not traditionally been a focus of previous first-line trauma treatments. These emerging MI/MD treatments and approaches are often experience, strength, and connection based rather than cognitively focused and fear based (i.e., psychedelic pharmaceuticals, virtual reality, adaptive disclosure therapy, animal assisted therapies, etc.). Research and knowledge dissemination is needed to assure interventions for MI/MD are efficacious, feasible, effective, and safe.
The aim of this special issue is to highlight the emerging literature on psychotherapeutic, psychosocial, spiritual and pharmacological treatment interventions and approaches for MI/MD.
Original articles, reviews, commentaries, editorials, case reports, that address:
• Theory, models, approaches, and frameworks for the treatment for MI/MD.
• Culturally specific manifestations and treatment approaches of MI/MD
• Intersection of MI/MD on issues of social oppression, discrimination, and justice.
• Qualitative and/or quantitative studies of various study designs on the efficacy, feasibility, effectiveness, and safety of current psychotherapeutic and pharmaceutical treatments for MI/MD.
• Implication of e-health (virtual reality, mobile health, virtual trauma therapy, etc.) for the treatment of MI/MD.
• The mechanism(s) of which novel and emerging therapies and approaches contribute to recovery of MI/MD.
