This article argues for a shift in the conceptualisation of child trauma recovery programme efficacy studies in occupied Palestine. Nearly all prevalence and programme evaluation studies in Palestine focus on current traumatic events and resultant symptoms, especially post-traumatic stress disorder. To date, no child trauma recovery programme has been evaluated from an intergenerational trauma perspective. Where intergenerational trauma has been explored in the literature, this has been at a conceptual rather than empirical level. In response to this omission, the current article explores intergenerational trauma as a conceptual framework for evaluative research into child trauma recovery programme efficacy in occupied Palestine. Following a review of the intergenerational trauma literature within and beyond Palestine, a framework for evaluation is developed, which includes: historical trauma; collective and individual loss; current-day traumatisation; micro-aggressions; resultant symptoms; and the transmission of intergenerational trauma. Recommendations are provided for future research, practice and policy development in Palestine and beyond.

  • An International Journal

    Critical and Radical Social Work is an exciting new journal that will promote debate and scholarship around a range of engaged social work themes. The journal publishes papers which seek to analyse and respond to issues, such as the impact of global neo-liberalism on social welfare; austerity and social work; social work and social movements; social work, inequality and oppression, and understanding and responding to global social problems (such as war, disasters and climate change).

    It welcomes contributions that consider and question themes relating to the definition of social work and social work professionalism, that look at ways in which organic and 'indigenous' practice can expand concepts of the social work project and that consider alternative and radical histories of social work activity. As a truly international journal it actively encourages contributions from academics, scholars and practitioners from across the global village.
