520    This multidisciplinary volume provides an overview of 
       refugee mental health problems and suggests approaches to 
       intervention. It is impossible to isolate these problems 
       from the context in which they arise, and as a result the 
       book also provides information on demographics, history, 
       epidemiology, policy formation, mental health services, 
       training, and specific regional concerns. 
520    We hope that mental health professionals, scientists, and 
       administrators who have had experience working with 
       refugees will find this book to be . . . a source of new 
       ideas and methods. We also hope that those readers who are
       encountering the problem of refugee mental health and well
       -being for the first time in reading this book will find a
       selective and timely introduction to the historical, 
       conceptual, and professional dimensions of the problem.
