The book concludes with the Postscript - a more personal reflection by the author on the impact of loss and trauma on individuals and the community affected by war, conflict and disaster. Beyond research and research findings, the author draws attention to the importance of empathy, to relationships, to the need for healing, to taking responsibility, to letting go, to social justice and fairness, to the need to invest in future generations after conflicts end, to the importance of hope, and the place of growth and resilience. He concludes with a plea for the human impact of war and conflict to be a key and early consideration, when peace is being made after conflicts end.
