Socio-Psychological Aspects of War broaden the perspective to encompass the societal implications of conflict, examining collective trauma, displacement, and the influence of social dynamics on psychological well-being. The book concludes by delving into Allied & Associated Topics, touching on aspects such as social support, media impact, and international collaboration in addressing the multifaceted psychological aftermath of war.
