Opportunities and challenges are before us for the understanding of human responses to traumatic events and for the care of trauma and disaster victims—from psychopharmacology to psychotherapy and system interventions. The knowledge base needs to be fostered and new models need to be tested. Those who are trauma victims deserve our best health care and services.
